WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on October 2, 2017 its decision dated September 19, 2017 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by YYY Brooklyn NY LLC, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 12d, changing from an R6 zoning district to a C6-4 zoning district and establishing a Special Downtown Brooklyn District at the northeast corner of Tillary Street and Prince Street (Block 2050, Lots 100, 104 and part of Lot 1). This amendment, in conjunction with the related action, would facilitate a new, approximately 234,000-square-foot mixed residential development with ground floor retail, located at 202-208 Tillary Street and 67-73 Prince Street in the Downtown Brooklyn neighborhood of Brooklyn Community District 2, (ULURP No. C 170400 ZMK), Community District 2, Borough of Brooklyn (the "Application");
