Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Educational Construction Fund (NYC ECF), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYC ECF East 96th Street Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on June 29, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at the Park East High School, 230 East 105th Street, New York, NY 10029.

The action involves a proposal by the co-applicants, NYC ECF and AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (AvalonBay), for a rezoning and other actions to allow the construction of a mixed-use building, a replacement facility for the existing School of Cooperative Technical Education (SCTE), a new facility for the relocation of two existing neighborhood public high schools, and relocation of an existing jointly-operated playground in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, New York. The proposed project involves the construction of a mixed-use tower on Second Avenue containing a 135,000 gross square foot public technical school-a replacement facility for the existing SCTE on the project site, as well as approximately 25,000 gross square foot of retail space, and approximately 1,015,000 gross square foot of residential floor area (1,100-1,200 units), of which 70 percent will be market rate and 30 percent will be permanently affordable. Following the demolition of the existing SCTE, the co-applicants will construct a 135,000 gross square foot building on First Avenue that will house two public high schools. The jointly-operated playground currently on the western portion of the project site would be relocated to the center of the project block. It is anticipated that site preparation and construction for the project would commence in 2018 and is expected it would be complete and operational in 2023.
