Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 532 West 20th Street (Parking Special Permit) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, DDG 532 West 20th Street LLC, for a Special Permit pursuant to Zoning Resolution (ZR) Sections 13-45 (Special Permits for Additional Parking Spaces) and 13-451 (Additional parking spaces for residential growth). The proposed action would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to provide a 10 space accessory garage on the ground floor of an 11 story as-of-right residential building to be constructed at 532 West 20th Street located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, Community District 4, New York. The project site is located in a C6-2 zoning district within Subarea E of the Special West Chelsea District. The project site is situated adjacent to the former Seaman's House YMCA (currently the Bayview Correctional Facility) and annex building, both of which are eligible for listing on the State/National Registers of Historic Places (S/NR-eligible).

The project site is within the Manhattan Core area as defined by zoning, and is therefore subject to special parking regulations pursuant to ZR Section 13-00 (Comprehensive Off-Street Parking and Loading Regulations in the Manhattan Core). Pursuant to ZR Section 13-11 (Permitted Parking for Residences), the maximum number of parking spaces permitted is twenty percent of dwelling units in the building. For the applicant's proposed 9 unit residential building, a maximum of two accessory parking spaces are permitted. Absent the proposed actions, the applicant intends to construct an as-of-right, 9-unit residential building and two accessory parking spaces on the project site. The as-of-right development would contain a 2,250 square foot smaller garage area and 30 foot rear yard at grade.

The proposed action would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to expand the physical area of the planned garage by approximately 2,250 square feet and extend the building to the rear lot line. The proposed garage would increase in capacity from two accessory parking spaces to ten spaces, representing an increment of eight spaces. The proposed parking spaces would be attended and would include five stackers, with sufficient space for vehicle maneuvering. One 12 foot curb cut would be located on West 20th Street for egress and ingress to the proposed parking garage.

The proposed project is expected to be completed by 2018.

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed DSNY Manhattan District 11 Garage and Lot Cleaning Headquarters will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves acquiring approximately 119,560 square feet of space and relocating the DSNY Manhattan District 11 Garage to a renovated, enlarged privately-owned facility at 207 East 127th Street, on a 48,152 square foot parcel, to support refuse and recycling collection and winter emergency service to Manhattan District 11, New York. The facility would also relocate the Manhattan Lot Cleaning Unit (LCU) and the LCU Headquarters. Owner would renovate an existing three story building (approximately 91,478 gross square foot) for DSNY employee support space, offices and small vehicle and accessory parking, and would construct a one story addition to service and wash vehicles (4,870 square foot) and store equipment (3000 square foot). Up to 22 collection trucks, 2 loaders, and snowplow attachments would be stored outdoors. Opaque perimeter fencing and gates will screen the site. Small vehicles would also be stored outdoors on a 3,800 square foot portion of Lot 28. Trucks would access the site from East 128th Street and exit to East 127th Street via existing curb cuts. A new curb cut would be provided along East 128th Street. Cars/SUVs would access the Project Site from existing curb cuts along East 127th Street. The M11 Garage has 65 personnel and 41 vehicles and other equipment (20 collection trucks, 4 salt spreaders, sedans, SUV's, etc.); the LCU and LCU Headquarters have 45 personnel and 2 trucks. The principal day shift is 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but the garage would operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with minimal operations on Sunday. The garage would have a diesel dispenser and 4,000 gallon underground diesel fuel tank and tanks in the cellar for motor oil, waste oil and hydraulic oil. Construction would take up to 18 months. The project requires site selection and acquisition approval by the New York City Planning Commission (NYCPC), an amendment to the Harlem East Harlem Urban Renewal Plan by the NYCPC and the New York City Department of Housing, Preservation and Development, Waterfront Revitalization Program consistency review, and DSNY capital funding.
