What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed 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.

Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 45 Broad Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Applicant, Madison 45 Broad Development LLC, is requesting approval of a Special Permit from the City Planning Commission (CPC), pursuant to New York City Zoning Resolution (ZR) Sections (§§) 74-634 and 91-251, for a floor area bonus in exchange for subway station improvements (the "Proposed Action"). The Proposed Action would permit additional Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of up to 3.00 (71,391 square feet) within a proposed mixed-use building to be developed at 45 Broad Street (Block 25, Lot 7) in the Special Lower Manhattan District of Borough of Manhattan, Community District 1 (the "Development Site"). The FAR bonus would apply to a single zoning lot that comprises two tax lots on Manhattan Block 25: Tax Lots 7 and 10 (the "Project Site"). There is an approximately 93,894-gsf community facility building on Lot 10, which would remain unchanged from existing conditions. The Project Site is located within the "Wall Street Historic District" (WSHD), which is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places (S/NR), and is adjacent to the Broad Street portion of the "Street Plan of New Amsterdam and Colonial New York", a designated New York City Individual Landmark; the Proposed Action is therefore classified as Type I under SEQRA.

Approval of the Proposed Action would facilitate a proposal by the Applicant to develop a 1,115-foot (80-floor), approximately 478,209-gross-square-foot (gsf) mixed-use building on the Development Site. The proposed mixed-use building would include approximately 407,477 gsf of residential floor area (206 market rate dwelling units) on floor 1 and floors 11 through 80; approximately 62,006 gsf of commercial/office floor area on floors 1 through 10; and approximately 8,726 gsf of outdoor floor area on floors 12, 33, and 53. In connection with the Special Permit, the Applicant would also provide subway improvements to (i) the Broad Street station of the Nassau Street (J/Z) subway line (the "Broad Street Station"), and (ii) the Wall Street station of the Lexington Avenue (4/5) subway line (the "Wall Street Station").

The Project Site is mapped with a C5-5 zoning district and is in the Historic and Commercial Core of the Special Lower Manhattan District (LM). The C5-5 zoning district permits development at a maximum FAR of 15.00 for commercial and community facility uses, which may be increased up to a total of 18.00 FAR via a special permit in exchange for the provision of subway station improvements (ZR §§74-634;91-251). Residential uses under the C5-5 zoning district regulations are limited to an FAR of 12.00, with the provision of recreation space. The Historic and Commercial Core of the Special Lower Manhattan District seeks to ensure that new development in the area bounded by Wall Street, Broadway, Water Street and Whitehall Street will be compatible with existing buildings that line the streets mapped in the Street Plan of New Amsterdam and Colonial New York, a street layout accorded landmark status by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The Applicant obtained a new building permit from the Department of Building (DOB) in May 2017 (Job No. 121190772) for a 1,115-foot (66-floor), approximately 380,957-gsf, as-of-right mixed-use building on the Development Site, and intends to proceed with foundation work and perform other early stage construction pursuant to that permit. Upon approval of the Proposed Action, 2.99 FAR of bonus floor area would be incorporated into the as-of-right building during the course of construction, pursuant to an amended DOB building permit. The incorporation of bonus floor area in the proposed building would not result in any change to the building height or overall building dimensions. The Restrictive Declaration recorded against the Project Site that would accompany the proposed Special Permit provides that the height of any building that incorporates the bonus floor area would not exceed 1,115 feet.

The proposed subway improvements to the Broad Street Station and the Wall Street Station would consist of (i) the installation of two Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant elevators at the Broad Street Station that would provide access from Broad Street to the southbound and northbound subway platforms, and (ii) improvements to the ingress and egress at two control areas at the connecting Wall Street Station.

Absent the Proposed Action, the Development Site would be developed with an as-of-right 1,115-foot (66-floor) mixed used building, in accordance with the approved DOB plans.

The analysis year for the proposed project is 2020.

The project is located 45 Broad Street (Block 25, Lot7), New York, NY (Manhattan).

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Bronx County (Bronx) - The Office Deputy Mayor for Housing/Economic Development, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Spofford Campus Project. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on January 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Spector Hall, Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street, Spector Hall, New York, NY 10007.

The New York City (NYC) Economic Development Corporation (EDC), the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), and The Peninsula JV, LLC (the "Project Sponsor"), is proposing a series of several discretionary actions including a disposition of City-owned property via long-term ground lease, large scale general development special permits, a zoning map amendment, a zoning text amendment, and a zoning authorization to facilitate the redevelopment of a 4.74-acre site in the Hunts Point neighborhood of Bronx Community District 2. The Proposed Actions would facilitate the construction of a five building mixed-use development and would result in approximately 823,700 gross square feet (gsf) of total development. It is conservatively anticipated that the Proposed Project would be comprised of approximately 777 affordable dwelling units (DUs) (671,800 gsf), approximately 75,700 gsf of commercial and local retail uses, approximately 40,000 gsf of community facility uses, and approximately 29,800 gsf of light industrial uses. The Proposed Project would also include approximately 260 below-grade parking spaces and a total of approximately 1.58 acres (68,768 sf) of publicly accessible open space. Construction of the Proposed Project is expected to be complete with all components fully operational by mid-2024.

The Notice of Completion and the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) were issued by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development on October 20, 2017, which marked the beginning of the public comment period on this document. A public hearing on the DEIS will be held in conjunction with the public hearing on the associated Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) applications. This notice is issued pursuant to Part 617, Article 8 (State Environmental Quality Review Act) of the Environmental Conservation Law.
