Re: NYU Core Project (“the Project”)

Dear President Grillo:

This letter addresses the potential construction sequence relevant to a potential public school sitewithin the NYU Core Project, specifically within the Bleecker Building. As part of the land use and zoning approvals for the Project, New York University committed, in section 6.2(b) of the Restrictive Declaration of Large Scale General Development (the “Restrictive Declaration”), to provide the School Construction Authority and the Chairperson of the City Planning Commission with an annual update on the overall construction schedules for the New Buildings as well as the applicable Construction Windows. This letter serves as the fourth such annualupdate and confirms that there have been no material changes from the construction sequence outlined in Chapter 26, Figure 26-51 of the Final Environmental Impact Statement, dated May 252012 (attached).

Please feel free to call me at (212) 998-6895 with any questions or comments.

Best regards,

Alicia D. Hurley, Ph.D
VP Government and Community Affairs


The Hon. Carl Weisbrod, Chair, City Planning Commission
The Hon. Margaret Chin, City Council
Mr. Kennrick Ou, SCA Real Estate
