Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 1164 Broadway Special Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, 1170 Broadway Associates, LLC, for a Special Permit pursuant to New York City Zoning Resolution (ZR) Section 74-711 (Landmarks Preservation in all Districts) to modify the setback and sky exposure plane requirements set forth in ZR Section 43-43 (Maximum Height of Front Wall and Required Front Setbacks). The Special Permit would facilitate a proposal by the Applicant to construct an 8 story (plus penthouse), 19,175 gross square foot enlargement to a 4 story, 14,353 gross square foot building located at 1164 Broadway. Collectively, the building located at 1164 Broadway, a 12 story, 106,829 gross square foot building located at 1170 Broadway and a 4 story, 7,981 gross square foot building located at 12 West 28th Street (Project Site) comprise the NoMad Hotel and related uses.

The analysis year for this project is 2019.

As part of the proposed project, the Applicant will enter into a Restrictive Declaration with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, agreeing to establish a cyclical maintenance plan that will ensure the continued maintenance of the building. An (E) designation for hazardous materials and noise will be placed that will ensure that the Proposed Actions would not result in significant adverse impacts. With these actions, no other significant effects on the environment which would require an Environmental Impact Statement are foreseeable.
