Statement of Findings
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT PERIOD REGARDING A PROPOSED LEASE AMENDMENT TO THE LEASE BETWEEN HUDSON RIVER PARK TRUST AND SUPER P57 LLC
Pier 57 is located within Hudson River Park at approximately West 15th Street. The pier, which is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places, was historically used for the Grace Lines cruises (through 1967). Between 1967 and 2003, it was used as a bus garage and maintenance facility by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transportation Operating Authority, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
On March 30, 2016, following environmental review and a public review process conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Hudson River Park Act, the Hudson River Park Trust’s Board of Directors voted to approve a lease with Super P57 LLC and to amend the Hudson River Park Multi-Purpose General Project Plan dated July 16, 1998 to reflect new uses on Pier 57. The lease allows historic Pier 57 to be restored and redeveloped into a mixed-use development with retail, office and public open space, among other uses.
The Hudson River Park Trust is currently considering a lease amendment for Pier 57 and is providing the public with the opportunity to review and comment on it. A copy of the public notice follows.
THIS SUMMARY IS PREPARED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY TO ASSIST THE PUBLIC IN ITS REVIEW OF THE PROPOSED LEASE AMENDMENT TO THE LEASE BETWEEN HUDSON RIVER PARK TRUST AND SUPER P57 LLC.
THIS SUMMARY IS NOT A LEGAL DOCUMENT AND DOES NOT REPLACE OR AMEND THE ORIGINAL LEASE OR THE PROPOSED LEASE AMENDMENT PUBLISHED ON THE TRUST’S WEBSITE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW. THE PUBLIC IS ADVISED TO REVIEW THE PUBLISHED PROPOSED LEASE AMENDMENT PRIOR TO SUBMITTING COMMENTS.
