Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Bronx County (Bronx) - The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lambert Houses Redevelopment may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments will be accepted until the close of business on November 2, 2015. A public scoping session will be held on October 21, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. at the Daly Community Room, 921 East 180th Street, Bronx, NY. Copies of the Draft Scope of Work and the Environmental Assessment Statement may be obtained from Patrick Blanchfield, NYC HPD, Division of Building and Land Development Services, Environmental Planning Unit, 100 Gold Street, New York, NY 10038, or from Nilda Mesa, New York City Mayor's Office of Sustainability, 100 Gold Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10038. The Draft Scope of Work will also be made available for download at HPD's environmental review webpage: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/hpd/developers/environmental-review.page.

The action involves an application to NYC HPD, on behalf of the project sponsor, Phipps Houses, for several discretionary actions intended to redevelop Lambert Houses, an existing residential and commercial development occupying approximately 12 acres in the East Tremont neighborhood of the Bronx, New York. By the 2029 build year, the Proposed Action would result in the redevelopment of the Project Area with a total of approximately 1,665 units of affordable housing (an increment of approximately 934 over the existing condition), approximately 61,100 square feet of retail space (an increment of 21,610 square feet over the existing condition), and a new 500-seat elementary school. The project is generally located along Boston Road between East Tremont Avenue and East 180th Street in the Bronx, New York.
