CEQR Number 16DME011M
Project Name East 126th Street Bus Depot Memorial & Mixed-Use Project
Project Description The New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) on behalf of the the City of New York is proposing a series of land use actions to facilitate the redevelopment of a City-owned full block site in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan. It includes all of the approximately 105,710-square-foot (sf) existing Block 1803, Lot 1, which since the 1940s has been occupied by the 126th Street Bus Depot, as well as an adjoining approximately 9,792-sf bus parking area located immediately west of Lot 1. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is in the process of vacating the bus depot, which it operated pursuant to a lease, and returning it to the City. The proposed actions include zoning map and text amendments, a City map amendment for the purpose of demapping a portion of a mapped street that had once been part of the project site, and the future disposition of City-owned property. The project may also involve the use of public financing for the development of permanently affordable housing. The proposed actions are anticipated to result in a development program including a mix of permanently affordable and market-rate residential, commercial, and community facility uses and provide a publicly-accessible memorial commemorating the Harlem African Burial Ground and its important role in the history of Harlem and New York City.
