CEQR Number 11DME007M
Project Name The Phased Redevelopment of Governors Island
Project Description To create the vibrant, mixed-use destination that is envisioned for the region, The Trust for Governors Island has undertaken a planning effort that would be executed over a number of years, with development and tenancy of the Island proceeding in multiple phases and depending upon financing. This redevelopment of the Island is a complex process and an overall plan for all requirements for the Island has not yet been adopted; therefore, all the specifics of future development are not known at this time. However, the initial phase will be park and open space development, with tenancies in historic buildings and new development occurring at a later date. To further this goal, a Park and Public Space Master Plan (the “Park Master Plan”) was developed that enumerates a set of principles, renderings, and text that depict the fundamental concepts for the design of the Island’s parks and public spaces. For the future, several scenarios were developed that could represent a reasonable range of new development that could occur in conformance with the current real estate use covenants. These include a primarily University/Research Scenario (URS) and a predominantly Mixed-Use Scenario (MUS), both of which would provide equivalent amounts of development.
