Notice Of Acceptance Of Final EIS

New York City (Bronx) County - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Mott Haven School Campus, Concourse Village, Bronx, New York City. The action involves construction of a new school campus in the Concourse Village section of the Bronx. The proposed school complex would accommodate four school organizations consisting of one 544-seat charter school serving grades 5 through 8, one 573-seat intermediate/high school serving grades 6 through 12, and two 549-seat high schools serving grades 9 through 12. The proposed complex would also include space for use by District 75 students.

The proposed site (Block 2443, portion of Lot 78) is a former rail yard whose grade is located approximately 15 to 30 feet below the street level of Concourse Village West, which is the only public street that adjoins the site. The property is vacant, owned by the City of New York, and under DOE's control.

According to current project plans, the proposed complex would contain a total of approximately 275,000 square feet. It would consist of a base (or podium) extending from the level of the former rail yard to the street level of Concourse Village West. From that podium individual buildings accommodating each of the four planned school organizations would rise: each building would have its own lobby, general instruction classrooms, administrative offices, and cafeteria. Spaces that would be shared by the four organizations, such as an auditorium, gymnasia, libraries, and some District 75 facilities, would be located within the podium, and would be accessible from each building.

The complex would be constructed within an approximately 147,000 square foot footprint along the western portion of the site (i.e., along Concourse Village West). The eastern portion of the site would be developed with playing fields and open space, which would remain at the existing rail yard level. All entrances to the proposed complex, including student and visitor entrances, would be located off Concourse Village West. Outdoor plazas would also be developed as part of the project to permit public access outside of school hours to the playing fields.
