Negative Declaration

New York City County - The NYC Department of Housing Preservation And Development, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYU Downtown Hospital Parking Lot Development will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an agreement that releases existing restrictions that permit conveyance of the property (Block 100, Lot 1) only to a “qualified hospital, charitable institution, association or corporation or authority.” The New York University Downtown Hospital is seeking to dispose of an approximately 44,352 square foot portion of the site, which currently accommodates a public parking lot (the “Parking Lot Parcel”), and unused air rights associated with the remaining portion of the site (the “Hospital Parcel”) to a developer for development in accordance with applicable zoning regulations. The proceeds gained through the sale of the parcel are expected to help finance capital improvements at the hospital, as well as the hospital’s ongoing operations. It is anticipated that as a result of the action a new, 53-story high-rise, mixed-use building would be erected on the Parking Lot Parcel. As part of the conveyance, it is expected that the developer will include an approximately 30,000 gsf ambulatory care facility for NYU Downtown within the new development. The project is located at 16-60 Beekman St., 8-42 Spruce St., 170 William St., 71-77 Gold St. (Block 100, Lot 1), Manhattan.

Notice Of Acceptance Of Final EIS

New York City County - The New York City, City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Community Facilities Text Amendment (CEQR No. 04DCP025Y - ULURP No. N040202 ZRY). The action involves the Department of City Planning (DCP) and the New York City Council Land Use Committee are proposing to modify and replace existing text, add new text, and reorganize various sections of the Zoning Resolution (ZR) regarding community facilities. The proposal would affect zoning regulations on a citywide basis, and would result in changes to the use, bulk and parking regulations included in the Zoning Resolution with regard to community facilities.

The FEIS has identified the potential for significant adverse impacts related to archaeological resources and hazardous materials. These impacts would be unmitigated, as there are no practicable or feasible measures available to mitigate them. The FEIS considers four alternatives to the proposed action: (1) a No Action Alternative, (2) a No Impact Alternative, (3) a CPC Chair Certification Alternative and (4) a 500 Foot Buffer Zone Alternative.
