pDEIS Project Description:
The Project Site is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of NYS Route 312 and Interstate 84 (opposite International Boulevard) in the Town of Southeast, Putnam County, NY. The ±52 acre Project Site is currently zoned Rural Commercial (RC). As part of the Proposed Action, the Applicant proposes that the Project Site be
designated as a new zoning district, Focused Highway Commercial (HC-1A). A Site Plan has been prepared which includes approximately 314,700 + SF of mixed use retail / restaurant / office development, and associated parking and utilities. The proposal also includes a 7 story, 200 room hotel/conference center. The previous pDEIS had a 6 story hotel.
The June 2012 pDEIS was rejected by the Town Board. A new pDEIS was submitted to the town January 10, 2013. On February 7, 2013 the Town Board declared the new pDEIS incomplete.
FEIS Project Description:
The proposed project is a mixed use retail complex consisting of 143,000+/- sf of retail and
restaurant use and a 100 room hotel in a total of five (5) buildings. The project may include 3,750+/- sf of restaurant space,
requiring 70 parking spaces. The 136,000+/- sf retail buildings will require 544 parking spaces
and a 4 story 100 room hotel will require 100 parking spaces as per the Town requirements. Parking is proposed below the 100 +/- room hotel building footprint.
The sponsor proposes to re-zone the land from RC to HC-1, see Existing Zoning Map #3 and Proposed Zoning Map #4, to allow the construction of a mixed use retail and hotel complex. The proposed zone change also includes three other modifications, as part of the zone
change, to the existing zoning regulations:
1. Modify Section 138-15.1A and B to allow a modification of the slope height
requirements of up to 3' for cut and fill slopes and 1' per retaining wall to allow for
greater flexibility to respond to site conditions and tenant needs;
2. Modify Section 138-12.I ridgelines to permit limited disturbance;
3. Permit hotels of 4 stories and 50' in height in an HC-1 Zone. Permit parking below
the hotel with no increase in FAR or height imposed by the parking.
