Project Description

The client required the preparation of a Reasonable Worst Case Development Scenario (RWCDS) memo and Environmental Assessment Statement (EAS) submitted to New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) for the rezoning of a site in Jamaica, Queens NY. The site is being rezoned for development from residential to residential with a commercial overlay. The site also required a variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) for development on a mapped street. The entire block was affected by the rezoning and analysis of properties adjacent to the site was also performed as part of the EAS. The site also required ULURP and a land use application for the project.
