The EIS:

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the City of New York City Planning Commission (CPC), as co-lead agencies under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) and City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR), have prepared this Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) for the proposed No. 7 Subway Extension and Hudson Yards Rezoning and Development Program. The FGEIS also covers two other major public actions in the Hudson Yards area – the expansion and modernization of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (Convention Center) and the development of a new multi-use sports, entertainment, and exhibition facility (Multi-Use Facility) adjacent to the Convention Center between West 30th and West 33rd streets.

The proposed public actions would promote the transit-oriented redevelopment of the Hudson Yards area.



The Proposed Action includes:

  • Adoption of zoning map and text amendments to the New York City Zoning Resolution and related land use actions to permit the development of Hudson Yards as a mixed-use community with new commercial and residential space, and a substantial amount of new open space, including approximately:
    • 28 million square feet of office space;
    • 12.6 million square feet (12,600 units) of residential space;
    • 1.5 million square feet of hotel space; and,
    • 700,000 square feet of retail space.

  • The construction and operation of an extension of the No. 7 Subway line to serve Hudson Yards. The proposed route extends west across West 41st Street with a station at Tenth Avenue and West 41st Street. The alignment continues west and turns south on Eleventh Avenue with a station at Eleventh Avenue and West 34th Street;

The co-lead agencies issued an Environmental Assessment Statement/Form (EAS/EAF) on February 10, 2003, a Positive Declaration for the Proposed Action on April 21, 2003, and a Draft Scoping Document on April 30, 2003. A public hearing on the Draft Scoping Document was held on June 5, 2003 to solicit public comments. Based on the public comments a Final Scoping Document was developed, including 18 alternatives to the proposed action. The Final Scoping Document was released on May 28, 2004. The Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) was released on June 21, 2004.

A Public Hearing on the DGEIS was held by the City Planning Commission and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in conjunction with the ULURP process on September 23, 2004. Public comments on the DGEIS were received for a ten day period following the September 23rd public hearing. Please see the project schedule for a list of those dates.

The FGEIS is available at the Muhlenberg Branch Library (213 West 23rd Street) and can be downloaded below in PDF format. A CD with the complete FGEIS can be purchased for $2 in the Department of City Planning’s Map and Bookstore at 22 Reade Street.

The modified applications for the Zoning Map Change (C 040499(A) ZMM) and the Zoning Text Amendment (N 040500(A) ZRM) that were filed on August 30, 2004 by the Department of City Planning were analyzed in the FGEIS as Alternative S.

The FGEIS, prepared in accordance with SEQRA, CEQR, and the Final Scoping Document, analyzes the effects of the Proposed Action and Alternatives to the Proposed Action on land use, zoning, and public policy; socioeconomic conditions; community facilities and services; open space and recreational facilities; shadows; architectural historic resources; archaeological resources; urban design and visual resources; neighborhood character; natural resources; hazardous materials; Local Waterfront Revitalization Program; infrastructure; solid waste and sanitation services; energy; traffic and parking; transit and pedestrians; air quality; noise and vibration; construction; public health; unavoidable adverse impacts; growth; and commitments of resources.
