Crotona Park East/West Farms Rezoning EIS

Crotona Park EastIndustco Holdings, LLC proposed to rezone 70 lots on 11 blocks in the Crotona Park East section of the Bronx, NY, which would result in up to 1,251 dwelling units and 84,450 sf of retail space on 14 lots controlled by the applicant. A school also was proposed. On the remaining lots, it could generate 2,139 dwelling units and 144,350 sf of retail space. SEA carried out the air quality, noise, and hazardous materials assessments as a subcontractor to Stantec Consulting. Using AERMOD, SEA modeled HVAC stacks from buildings on nearly every lot to be rezoned.
