Iona College is proposing the construction of a new 10-story residence hall consisting of approximately 93,434 square feet and housing approximately 393 students. The residence hall would be constructed on the site of an existing parking lot on the Iona College West Campus, adjacent to the existing Loftus residence hall.
The residence hall would include 110 units, organized into two-unit suites with shared living space and bathroom. The ground floor would include the security desk and residence units. The project would also include 16 surface parking spaces.
A Public Scoping Session was held Thursday December 9, 2010 at 7:00PM in City Council Chambers.
All public comments were due by close of business on Monday December 20, 2010, ten (10) days after the public scoping session.
City Council approved the Final Scope on Tuesday, January 18, 2011.
In compliance with the State Environment Quality Review Act (SEQRA), Iona is preparing a complete Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed residence hall project as governed by the Final Scoping Document.
