  1. Public Hearing: Cornell NYC Tech, 1 Main Street, Roosevelt Island - Cornell University and the New York City Economic Development Corporation are seeking a number of discretionary approvals to support and allow for the development of the Cornell NYC Tech applied science and engineering campus on Roosevelt island. The land affected by the proposed action is approximately 19-acre parcel located south of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge and is bounded on the north and south by an existing roadway encircling the existing Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital and Nursing Facility’s Goldwater Memorial Hospital on the east and west by the New York City pier head and bulkhead lines. An approximately 123.4 acre portion of the project site would serve as the Cornell NYC Tech Campus and the remainder would be preserved for waterfront access and waterfront enhancing uses. In order to allow for the redevelopment of the project site, Cornell and NYCEDC are requesting: (1) Zoning Map amendment to change the project site zoning from R7-2 to C4-5 and to establish the Special Southern Roosevelt Island District over the project site (2) Zoning Text amendment to create a new Chapter 3, Article XIII to the New York City Zoning Resolution governing the Special Southern Roosevelt Island District, including special bulk, use, parking and public access controls for the Special District (3) Disposition of City-owned property from the City of New York (via the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS)) to the New York City Land Development Corporation (NYCLDC) which will dispose the property to the New York City Economic Development Corporation or any successor thereto for a subsequent proposed long-term lease or sale to Cornell (4) Amendment to the City Map to make a one-way loop road surrounding the proposed Cornell Campus (the Loop Road) and the connections between the Loop Road and the main street on Roosevelt Island part of the City’s formal street system
