Staten Island - Arthur Kill Terminal

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Richmond County (Staten Island) - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Arthur Kill Terminal. The Final EIS is available from the contact below and online at:

The action involves a request by the Applicant, Arthur Kill Terminal, LLC, for several discretionary actions from City, State and Federal agencies (Proposed Actions) to facilitate the development of an approximately 32.5 acre property (Project Site) and an approximately 18 acre dredge area along the Arthur Kill waterfront in Staten Island Community District 3, New York. The Project Site encompasses Block 7620, Lot 1, and Block 7632, Lots 6, 50, 150, and 151. The Project Site is generally bounded by the Outerbridge Crossing to the north, commercial buildings and Arthur Kill Road to the east, the street bed of the mapped but unbuilt Richmond Valley Road and the shoreline of Mill Creek to the south, and the Arthur Kill bulkhead to the west. The Proposed Actions sought from the City include a City Map Change, a zoning text amendment, a special permit, two zoning authorizations, and a landfill action. In addition, the applicant seeks approvals from, but not necessarily limited to, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), the New York State Department of State (NYS DOS), the New York State Office of General Services (NYS OGS), and the United State Maritime Administration (US MARAD). The Proposed Actions would facilitate development of the Project Site as Arthur Kill Terminal (AKT), an approximate 32.5 acre state-of-the-art port for the staging, assembly, and pre-commissioning of wind turbine generators (WTGs) and other offshore wind (OSW) components (Proposed Project). The Proposed Project would also include the dredging of an approximately 18 acre navigable Dredge Basin to a depth of -35 foot NAVD88 dredge bottom plus 1 foot of allowable over dredge to allow cargo vessels to access the berths at the proposed facility. The Proposed Project would include the construction of a port with a 1,365 linear foot quay, an approximately 28.5 acre laydown and storage area upland of the quay, as well as a two-story (48 foot tall including mechanical bulkhead) tenant building located at the northeast corner of the Project Site containing warehouse space and accessory office space, totaling approximately 22,472 gross square foot, with 111 accessory parking spaces, and the adaptive reuse of an existing two story (33 foot tall) 4,212 gross square foot residential structure (Cole House) at the southeast corner of the site as a visitor center and owner office with 13 accessory parking spaces. The project is located at 4927 Arthur Kill Road in Staten Island, New York.
