What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed is to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Richmond County (Staten Island) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed South Avenue Retail Development . The Final EIS is available from the contact listed below and on line at: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/applicants/eis-documents.page.

The action involves proposed discretionary actions (proposed actions) by the applicant, Josif A LLC, to facilitate a proposed retail development. The development site is located at 534 South Avenue near the intersection of Forest Avenue and South Avenue in the Mariners Harbor neighborhood of Staten Island Community District 1, New York. The 28.3 acre project site is located in a M1-1 zoning district and is bounded by Forest Avenue and Wemple Street (which is mapped but not built) to the north, South Avenue to the east, Amador Street (which is mapped but not built) to the south, and Morrow Street (which is partially built and partially unbuilt) to the west.

The applicant is requesting a special permit pursuant to Zoning Resolution (ZR) Section 74-922 to allow retail establishments with Use Group (UG) 6 and UG 10A uses in excess of 10,000 zoning square feet in an M1-1 district. In addition, the applicant is requesting an amendment to the City Map to demap portions of Garrick Street, Amador Street, Albany Avenue, and Morrow Street (unbuilt streets) and to map a new section of Morrow Street; the mapping action would also realign the intersection of Morrow Street and Forest Avenue. The proposed actions would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to develop a total of 219,377 zoning square feet (or approximately 226,000 gross square feet) of UG 6, UG 10A, and UG 16 uses, and 838 required accessory parking spaces.

The applicant is requesting the following discretionary actions:
• A special permit pursuant to ZR Section 74-922 to allow retail establishments with UG 6 and UG 10A uses in excess of 10,000 zoning square feet in an M1-1 district, contrary to the existing regulations of ZR Section 42-12. The proposed development would conform to existing zoning regulations with respect to building bulk and the provision of accessory parking spaces.
• An amendment to the New York City Map to demap portions of Garrick Street, Amador Street, and Albany Avenue, and Morrow Street (unbuilt streets), to map new sections of Morrow Street, and to realign the intersection of Morrow Street and Forest Avenue.

In addition to the New York City Planning Commission actions, a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) freshwater wetlands permit is required for development on the site. However, the proposed project avoids all regulated jurisdictional waters and wetlands of the United States within the development site and does not require a United States Army Corps of Engineers (US ACE) Section 10 or 404 permit.
