Sendero Verde

Sendero Verde – East 111th Street is a mixed-use development project to be built on the majority of Block 1617 which is bound by 111th Street, 112th Street, Park Avenue, and Madison Avenue in Community District 11, Manhattan.

The development is comprised of three mixed-use buildings, ranging from 10-37 stories, containing a total of approximately 655 residential units, 32,194 zoning square feet (zsf) of commercial space, and 142,185 zsf of community facility space.

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“Applicant”), sought approval of several actions to facilitate the development of this project, including approval of an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP) area designation and project approval, and the disposition of City-owned parcels including Block 1617, Lots 20, 22, 23, 25, 28, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 45, 46, 48, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 121, and 122. Additionally, the Applicant sought approval to acquire a portion of the Disposition Area for use as approximately four community gardens and a publically accessible path following disposition. The Applicant also proposed a zoning map amendment and a zoning text amendment for the entirety of Block 1617, which includes the Disposition Area and two privately-owned parcels, Block 1617, Lots 21 and 34 in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan Community District 11. Finally, the Applicant sought a special permit for the creation of Large Scale General Development to facilitate the urban design requirement of the Proposed Development.
