CHRISTINA MICHAELIAN, AICP
Ms. Michaelian has over eleven years of experience in environmental planning. Her responsibilities at PHA include the preparation of environmental assessments and associated analyses of project-related impacts on land use and zoning, socioeconomic conditions, open space, historic resources, community facilities, urban design, traffic and transportation, as well as other planning and environmental issues.
Ms. Michaelian is currently the project manager for the EIS for Astoria Cove, a 2 million square foot mixed-use, predominantly residential development proposed on an 8.7-acre site along the Astoria waterfront. She recently completed an EIS for a zoning map amendment for an approximately five and a half block area to allow mixed-use (predominantly residential) development in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Ms. Michaelian served as the project manager for an EIS for a security plan that involved the closure of public streets around NYPD Headquarters and other government facilities in the Civic Center area of Lower Manhattan. These security measures included the installation of attended security checkpoint booths, planters, bollards and hydraulic-operated delta barriers to restrict unauthorized vehicles from the roadways adjacent to the civic facilities located near One Police Plaza. Her responsibilities included analysis of potential project impacts on land use and zoning, socioeconomic conditions, community facilities, urban design and visual resources, neighborhood character, traffic and transportation, air quality, noise, and assessment of alternatives.
Ms. Michaelian also served as the project manager for the EAS for a large-scale mixed-use development, The Crossings, in the Hunt’s Point neighborhood of the Bronx. This EAS included detailed technical attachments for land use and zoning, air quality, hazardous materials, traffic and transportation, and noise. Ms. Michaelian’s other recent past projects involved approvals of special permits for residential developments in SoHo in Manhattan, approvals for the disposition of City-owned property for the construction of affordable housing developments in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and the Hub area of the Bronx, and the renovation and expansion of Engine 201/Ladder 114/Battalion 40 in Brooklyn.
