Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Queens County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed East Harlem Rezoning may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until January 4, 2017. A public scoping session will be held on December 15, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, 2180 3rd Avenue, New York, NY 10035. The draft scoping document is available from the New York City Department of City Planning, Environmental Assessment and Review Division, 120 Broadway, 31st Floor, New York, NY 10271 and on line at: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/applicants/scoping-documents.page

The action involves a proposal by the New York City Department of City Planning (NYC DCP), together with the new York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), for a zoning map amendment, zoning text amendments, and amendments to the Millbank Frawley Circle East and Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Plans (Proposed Actions) affecting an approximately 95 block area within the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan Community District 11.

The Proposed Actions are anticipated to facilitate new residential, commercial, community facility, and manufacturing development by 2027, the analysis year for environmental review purposes. The reasonable worst case development scenario (RWCDS) for the Proposed Actions identifies 69 projected development sites. On these sites, the Proposed Actions are expected to result in a net increase of approximately 3,500 dwelling units, a substantial proportion of which are expected to be affordable; 151,100 square feet of commercial space; 98,900 square feet of community facility space; and 132,400 square feet of manufacturing space; and net decreases of approximately 10,600 square feet of auto-related space, 33,000 square feet of hotel space, and 53,800 square feet of warehouse/storage space.

The Proposed Actions reflect NYC DCP's on-going engagement with Community Board 11, local elected officials, and community residents and stakeholders to achieve key land use objectives related to housing, economic development, neighborhood character, and infrastructure.

The project is located on a 95 block area in East Harlem generally bounded by East 104th Street, East132nd Street, Park Avenue and Second Avenue in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan Community District 11, New York.
