By Council Members Greenfield and Salamanca

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on July 28, 2017 its decision dated July 26, 2017 (the "Decision"), pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter, regarding an application submitted by the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services, for the disposition of one city-owned property located at 2460 Second Avenue (Block 1803, Lot 1) (the “Disposition Area”), pursuant to zoning.  This disposition in conjunction with the related actions would facilitate a new mixed-use, mixed-income development comprising approximately 730 residential units with ground floor retail space, community facility space and a memorial to commemorate the Harlem African Burial Ground, which comprises a portion of the proposed project site located in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, (Application No. C 170278 PPM), Community District 11, Borough of Manhattan (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 170275 ZMM (L.U. No. 733), an amendment to the Zoning Map; N 170276 ZRM (L.U. No. 734), amendment to the text of the Zoning Resolution to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; and C 170093 MMM (L.U. No. 735), an amendment to the City Map;

 

                          WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(3) of the City Charter;

                           WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on August 21, 2017;

 

                           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, including the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on July 13, 2017 (CEQR No. 16DME011M), which identified significant adverse impacts with respect to historic and cultural resources - archaeological resources, transportation (traffic, buses, subways, and pedestrians) and construction activities related to noise;

 

RESOLVED:

                     Having considered the FGEIS with respect to the Decision and Application, the Council finds that:

                      

(1)                     The FGEIS 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 action is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(3)                                          The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FGEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, those mitigative measures that were identified as practicable.

 

The Decision and the FGEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this determination, 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 the report, C 170278 PPM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision for the disposition of one city-owned property located at 2460 Second Avenue (Block 1803, Lot 1), Borough of Manhattan, with the modification that the disposition is restricted to require the provision of a minimum of 18,000 square feet of publicly accessible open space, to be located to the maximum extent feasible, within the historic footprint of the Harlem African Burial Ground on the Disposition Area. 

 

Adopted.
