Sendero Verde – East 111th Street

Sendero Verde – East 111th Street is a proposed 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 proposed development would be 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”), is seeking 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 seeks 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 proposes 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 will seek a special permit for the creation of Large Scale General Development to facilitate the urban design requirement of the Proposed Development.

In accordance with the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), the land use applications for the proposed development are subject to review by the community board, which has until July 3, 2017 to submit any comments and/or recommendations to the NYC Department of City Planning.

Community Board 11 will vote on the land use application during its Full Board Meeting on June 20, 2017.
