The New York City Department of City Planning (“DCP” or “the applicant”) is requesting zoning map and zoning text amendments (collectively, the “proposed actions”) affecting an approximately 73-block area of Midtown Manhattan. The rezoning area located within Manhattan Community Districts 5 and 6, is generally bounded by East 39th Street, East 57th Street, Second and Third avenues and a line 150 feet east of Fifth Avenue to the west. The proposed actions would allow new density through as-of-right zoning mechanisms and a new special permit for large qualifying developments.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering (“MSK”) and Hunter College of the City University of New York (“CUNY,” together, “the applicants”) are partnering to acquire a development site from the City, located adjacent to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive (“FDR Drive”) between 73rd and 74th streets (Block 1485, Lot 15) on the Upper East Side. The development site is located in Community District 8 (“CD 8”). The applicants propose the construction of a new ambulatory cancer treatment facility and nursing school. In order to realize the joint MSK/CUNY facility, the applicants seek: a rezoning of the project site to accommodate a high-density community facility use; approval of special permits associated with a large scale general development (“LSGD”) to waive certain bulk, height and setback, floor area ratio (“FAR”) restrictions for community facilities and signage regulations; a zoning text amendment to create a new provision for certain LSGD community facilities that would grant bonus FAR for off-site park improvements; approval of a special permit to increase the number of permitted accessory parking spaces; and approval of the disposition of the development site. Each of the five land use actions requested by the applicants is described in detail below.
MSG Holdings, L.P. (“the applicant”) seeks five actions to enable the continued operation of the Madison Square Garden Arena (“the arena”), located at 3-10 Penn Plaza (Block 781, Lot 9001) located in Manhattan’s Community District 5. In addition to permitting the arena to operate, the actions would allow physical improvements to the public areas surrounding the arena and facilitate arena marketing and revenue generation by allowing the use of large digital displays.
62 Wooster LLC (“the applicant”) seeks a special permit pursuant to Section 74-711 of the Zoning Resolution (“ZR”) to modify use regulations in accordance with ZR § 42-14(D)(2)(a) to allow Use Group 6 (retail) uses on portions of the ground floor and cellar and with ZR § 42-00 to allow Use Group 2 (residential) uses on the second through sixth floors and penthouse, with accessory residential uses on portions of the ground floor and cellar of an existing six-story building and proposed penthouse located at 62 Wooster Street (a.k.a. 476 Broome Street, the “project site”). The project site (Block 486, Lot 36) is located in an M1-5A zoning district within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District (“Historic District”) in Manhattan Community District 2.
Cornell University ("Cornell") and the New York City Economic Development Corporation ("NYCEDC") seek a number of approvals to facilitate the development of the Cornell NYC Tech Applied Science and Engineering Campus ("Cornell NYC Tech") on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan Community District 8.
MTM Associates, LLC (“the applicant”) seeks a zoning text amendment to Section 74-712 of the Zoning Resolution (“ZR”), and a special permit pursuant to the amended text to modify use and bulk regulations of §§§ 42-00 (General Provisions), 42-14(D)(2)(a) and 43-43 (Maximum height of front wall and required front setbacks) to allow for the construction of an 8-story building with retail on the ground floor and cellar, and residential units on the second through eighth floors. The new mixed-use building would be located on two adjacent tax lots at 150 Wooster Street (Block 514, Lots 7 and 9). Approval of the amended zoning text would permit the replacement of an existing structure on Lot 9. The project site is located within the SoHoCast Iron Historic District (“Historic District”) and an M1-5A zoning district in Manhattan’s Community District 2.
