Negative Declaration

New York City (Manhattan) County - The New York City Industrial Development Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 7 World Trade Center Office Building will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves financial incentives related to the replacement of the destroyed 7 World Trade Center (7WTC) office building with a new 1.685 million gross square feet (mgsf) office building including approximately 76,500 square feet of replacement Con Edison substations and their support facilities. The destroyed 7WTC contained 1.925 mgsf. The project site and new building footprint would be offset somewhat from that of the previous 7WTC building to preserve the option of opening a street corridor on Greenwich Street between Barclay and Vesey Streets and it totals 58,255 s.f. The previous building was 616 feet tall while the more slender replacement building will be approximately 750 feet tall, as it occupies a smaller area than did the previous building. The proposed building is to be located directly east of the Barclay-Vesey Building which is listed on the State and National Registers and west of the Church Street Station at 90 Church Street which is also listed on the State and National Registers.
