to facilitate the construction of an eleven-story mixed-use building with affordable residential units and ground floor retail space in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Community District 3, Borough of Brooklyn (ULURP No. C 170304 HAK) (the "Application");

 

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 July 31, 2017 and submitted to the Council on August 4, 2017, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application including the submission of the project summary for the Project (the “Project Summary”);

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on August 21, 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 (CEQR No. 17HPD044K) issued on March 17, 2017 (the “Negative Declaration”);

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact 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 170304 HAK) and incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission and the HPD Requests.

 

                       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 and subject to the terms and conditions of the Project Summary.

 

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

 

                     The Council approves the disposition of the Disposition Area to a developer to be selected by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development for the development of the Project consistent with the Project Summary.

 

Adopted.
