THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK

RESOLUTION NO. 1703

 

Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 150278 ZMK, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 761).

 

By Council Members Greenfield and Richards

 

                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 19, 2017 its decision dated September 19, 2017 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by Harrison Realty, LLC, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 13b, changing an M3-1 District to R7A, R7D, R8A and C2-4 Districts. This amendment in conjunction with the related action would facilitate the development of eight mixed use buildings, containing approximately 1,146 dwelling units, of which 287 units, or 25 percent of the residential floor area, would be set aside for permanently affordable housing; 62,810 square feet of ground floor retail; 404 accessory parking spaces; and 26,000 square feet of public open space in the South Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn (ULURP No. C 150278 ZMK), Community District 5, Borough of Brooklyn (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS, the Application is related application N 150277 ZRK (L.U. No. 762), a zoning text amendment to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area;

 

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 October 24, 2017;

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 8, 2017 (CEQR No. 15DCP117K), which included an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality and noise (E-427);

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     Having considered the FEIS 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 action is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(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, pursuant to the restrictive declaration dated September 14, 2017, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable;

 

The Decision and the FEIS 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 Section 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 150278 ZMK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
