      WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on March 17, 2014 its decision dated March 17, 2014 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by 606 W. 57 LLC, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 8c, changing M1-5 and M2-3 districts to a C4-7 district, which along with the other  related actions would facilitate the development of a mixed-use building containing residential units, including affordable housing, commercial or community facility uses and up to 500 public parking spaces at 606 West 57th Street in Manhattan Community District 4 (ULURP No. C 130336 ZMM) Borough of Manhattan (the "Application");
 
WHEREAS, the application is related to Applications C 130339 ZSM (L.U. No. 42), a special permit pursuant to Section 13-454, Additional parking spaces for large scale developments, to provide a maximum of 500 public parking spaces or a maximum of 395 public parking spaces; and N 130337 ZRM (L.U. No. 43), an amendment to Zoning Resolution Appendix F to include the project area in Inclusionary Housing designated area; Section 96-34, Special Regulations in Northern Subarea C1, to amend the Inclusionary Housing bonus structure to encourage the inclusion of commercial or community facility floor area, to permit an auto showroom with preparation of automobiles and accessory repair facility, and to establish a special permit for transient hotel uses;
 
WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;
 
WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on April 1, 2014;
 
WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Decision and Application; and
 
      WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement ("FEIS"), for which a Notice of Completion was issued on March 7, 2014 (CEQR No. 13DCP080M), and the CEQR Technical Memorandum dated May 1, 2014 (the "CEQR Technical Memorandum");
 
 
RESOLVED:
 
Having considered the FEIS and the CEQR Technical Memorandum with respect to the Decision and Application, the Council finds that:
 
(1)            The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;
 
(2)      Consistent with social, economic, and other essential considerations, from among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the Proposed Action adopted herein, with modifications, is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable;
 
(3)      The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS and the CEQR Technical Memorandum will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, pursuant to the Restrictive Declaration marked as Exhibit A to the CPC Decision C 130336 ZMM, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable;
 
(4)      No development pursuant to this resolution shall be permitted until the Restrictive Declaration attached as Exhibit A to the CPC Decision C 130336 ZMM, as same may be modified with any necessary administrative or technical changes, all as acceptable to counsel to the Department of City Planning, is executed, and such Restrictive Declaration shall have been recorded and filed in the Office of the Register of the City of New York, County of New York; and
 
(5)           The Decision together with the FEIS constitutes 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 200 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 130336 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
