WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council on August 16, 2004 its request dated July 26, 2004 that the Council take the following actions regarding an Urban Development Action Area Project (the "Project") located at 201 East 120 Street (Block 1785/Lot 1), Community District 11, Borough of Manhattan (the "Disposition Area"):

 

                        1.                     Find that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes of Section 691 of the General Municipal Law;

 

                        2.                     Waive the area designation requirement of Section 693 of the General Municipal Law pursuant to said Section;

 

                        3.                     Waive the requirements of Sections 197-c and 197-d of the New York City Charter pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law; and

 

                        4.                     Approve the Project as an Urban Development Action Area Project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                           WHEREAS, the Project is to be developed on land that is now a municipally-owned area as defined in Section 692 of the General Municipal Law, consists solely of the rehabilitation or conservation of existing private or multiple dwellings or the construction of one to four unit dwellings, and does not require any change in land use permitted under the New York City Zoning Resolution;
