By Council Members Greenfield and Salamanca

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on March 10, 2017 its decision dated March 8, 2017 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”) pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter and Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State regarding:

 

a)                     the designation of property located at 210-214 Hegeman Avenue (Block 3639, Lots 35 and 37), as an Urban Development Action Area (the "Disposition Area”);

 

b)                     Approval an Urban Development Action Area Project for the Disposition Area (the "Project"); and

 

c)                     pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the disposition of city-owned property located at 210-214 Hegeman Avenue (Block 3639, Lots 35 and 37), to a developer to be selected by HPD;

 

which in conjunction with the other related action would facilitate the development of an eight-story building containing approximately 70 units of affordable and supportive housing in the Brownsville neighborhood of Community District 16, Borough of Brooklyn (ULURP No. C 170153 HAK) (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS, the Application is related to application C 170154 ZSK (L.U. No. 598), a special permit pursuant to Section 74-903 of the Zoning Resolution to modify the floor area requirements for a non-profit institution with sleeping accommodations;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;

 

WHEREAS, the Application and Decision are subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State;

  WHEREAS, by letter dated March 20, 2017 and submitted to the Council on March 27, 2017, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application;

 

                     WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on March 28, 2017;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Application;

                     

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the negative declaration issued November 14, 2016 (CEQR No. 17HPD026K) (the “Negative Declaration”);

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant effect on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.

 

                       Pursuant to Section 197-d of the New York City Charter, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report (C 170153 HAK) and incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.

 

                       The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the City of New York and that a designation of the Project as an urban development action area project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                       The Council approves the designation of the Disposition Area as an urban development action area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                       The Council approves the Project as an urban development action area project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                     The Project shall be developed in a manner consistent with the Project Summary submitted by HPD on March 27, 2017, a copy of which is attached hereto and made a part hereof.

 

                       The Council approves the disposition of 210-214 Hegeman Avenue (Block 3639, Lots 35 and 37), to a developer selected by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

 

Adopted.
