Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1.  Section 11-243 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision b-1 to read as follows:
b-1.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision b of this section, alterations, improvements or conversions of any building or structure that are eligible for benefits pursuant to subdivision b of this section except insofar as the gross cubic content of such building or structure is increased thereby shall be eligible for such benefits insofar as the gross cubic content of such building or structure is increased thereby provided that:
(1) for all tax lots now existing or hereafter created, at least fifty percent of the floor area of the completed building or structure consists of the pre-existing building or structure that was converted, altered or improved in accordance with subdivision b of this section, and
(2) for tax lots now existing or hereafter created within the following area in the borough of Manhattan, such conversions, alterations or improvements are aided by a grant, loan or subsidy from any federal, state or local agency or instrumentality:  beginning at the intersection of the United States pierhead line in the Hudson river and the center line of Chambers street extended, thence easterly to the center line of Chambers street and continuing along the center line of Chambers street to the center line of Centre street, thence southerly along the center line of Centre street to the center line of the Brooklyn Bridge to the intersection of the Brooklyn Bridge and the United States pierhead line in the East river, thence northerly along the United States pierhead line in the East river to the intersection of the United States pierhead line in the East river and the center line of one hundred tenth street extended, thence westerly to the center line of one hundred tenth street and continuing along the center line of one hundred tenth street to its westerly terminus, thence westerly to the intersection of the center line of one hundred tenth street extended and the United States pierhead line in the Hudson river, thence southerly along the United States pierhead line in the Hudson river to the point of beginning.  
(3)  For purposes of this subdivision, "floor area" shall mean the horizontal areas of the several floors or any portion thereof of a dwelling or dwellings and accessory structures on a lot measured from the exterior faces of exterior walls or from the center line of party walls.  
(4)  Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to provide tax abatement benefits pursuant to subdivision c of this section for the costs attributable to the increased cubic content in any such building or structure.
ยง 2.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
