(3)      The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, in accordance with environmental commitment letters, each dated September 10, 2013, from the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and acknowledged and accepted by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.
 
(4)      The Decision together with the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards, that form the basis of the decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).
 
Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 199 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in this report, C 130229 MMR, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision for an amendment to the City Map involving:
