Negative Declaration

New York City (Brooklyn) County - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 544-Seat Addition to High School of Telecommunications Arts & Technology, Brooklyn will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves construction of an addition to the existing High School of Telecommunications Arts and Technology (Telecom H.S.) in the Borough of Brooklyn. The proposed addition would accommodate students in grades nine through twelve, and would provide capacity of approximately 544 additional seats. This project would be undertaken pursuant to DOE’s Capital Plan for Fiscal Years 2005-2009.

The existing Telecom H.S. building is located on 4th Avenue between 67th and Senator Streets, on the eastern portion of the block (Block 5850, Lot 30), in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn. The addition would be built at the rear of the existing school building, on an unpaved portion of the site that has recently been used for construction staging. The four-story addition would contain a total of approximately 18,277 gross square feet consisting of classrooms and offices. Access to the addition would be located on 67th Street through the main school building.

The project’s purpose is to provide additional permanent capacity to accommodate Telecom’s enrollment. Under existing conditions, in addition to the permanent classrooms in Telecom’s existing building, students occupy Transportable Classroom Units (TCUs) located across 67th Street from the school on property controlled by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, as well as temporary classrooms that were installed within the building’s former auditorium. With construction of the addition, the TCUs will be removed (and the area they occupy restored for park-related uses), and the school’s existing auditorium restored to its originally intended use. The project is located at 350 67th Street, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York, Tax Block 5850, Tax Lot 30.
