SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background GSA intends to prepare an EA to analyze the potential impacts resulting from proposed renovations associated with the Appraisers Building and U.S. Customs House Renovations Project. The Project is located at 630 Sansome Street (Appraisers Building) and 555 Battery Street (U.S. Customs House), San Francisco, California. The Project is proposed in order to bring these buildings up to current building code, safety standards and serviceable condition and to prolong their useful life. The Appraisers Building is a Class-B office building on a .86-acre site in the central business district of San Francisco. The original structure was constructed in 1944, and is nineteen stories above-ground, which includes the penthouse, loft, two levels of mechanical space, and three tiered-roof levels. This building is adjacent to the U.S. Customs House. The U.S. Customs House is on a .86acre site located on the northern edge of the city’s financial district, occupying one-half of the block bounded by Sansome, Jackson, Battery and Washington Streets. The Class B structure was constructed in 1911 and is composed of two interconnected structures. Alternatives Under Consideration The EA will consider one Action Alternative (the Proposed Action) and the No Action Alternative. The Action Alternative would consist of modernization work to repair, modify or replace certain building improvements and systems. The buildings would not be expanded in size and there would be no change in personnel staffing levels at each building. Construction is likely to impact parking access and traffic flow during construction. Under the No Action Alternative, modernization enhancements to the existing buildings would not occur. Scoping Process Scoping will be accomplished through public notifications in the San Francisco Chronicle, social media announcements, and direct mail correspondence to appropriate federal, state, and local agencies; surrounding property owners; and private organizations and citizens who have PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 previously expressed or are known to have an interest in the Project.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    GSA intends to prepare an EA to analyze the potential impacts 
resulting from proposed renovations associated with the Appraisers 
Building and U.S. Customs House Renovations Project.
    The Project is located at 630 Sansome Street (Appraisers Building) 
and 555 Battery Street (U.S. Customs House), San Francisco, California. 
The Project is proposed in order to bring these buildings up to current 
building code, safety standards and serviceable condition and to 
prolong their useful life.
    The Appraisers Building is a Class-B office building on a .86-acre 
site in the central business district of San Francisco. The original 
structure was constructed in 1944, and is nineteen stories above-
ground, which includes the penthouse, loft, two levels of mechanical 
space, and three tiered-roof levels. This building is adjacent to the 
U.S. Customs House.
    The U.S. Customs House is on a .86-acre site located on the 
northern edge of the city's financial district, occupying one-half of 
the block bounded by Sansome, Jackson, Battery and Washington Streets. 
The Class B structure was constructed in 1911 and is composed of two 
interconnected structures.

Alternatives Under Consideration

    The EA will consider one Action Alternative (the Proposed Action) 
and the No Action Alternative. The Action Alternative would consist of 
modernization work to repair, modify or replace certain building 
improvements and systems. The buildings would not be expanded in size 
and there would be no change in personnel staffing levels at each 
building. Construction is likely to impact parking access and traffic 
flow during construction.
    Under the No Action Alternative, modernization enhancements to the 
existing buildings would not occur.

Scoping Process

    Scoping will be accomplished through public notifications in the 
San Francisco Chronicle, social media announcements, and direct mail 
correspondence to appropriate federal, state, and local agencies; 
surrounding property owners; and private organizations and citizens who 
have previously expressed or are known to have an interest in the 
Project.
    The primary purpose of the scoping process is for the public to 
assist GSA in determining the scope and content of the environmental 
analysis.
