WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council on November 28, 2017 its request dated November 27, 2017 that the Council take the following action regarding the Amended Urban Renewal Project located at Block 09801, Lot 2, Block 11131, Lot 6, Block 10366, Lot 143, and Block 10411, Lot 6),  Community Districts 12 and 13, Borough of Queens (the "Amended Project"):

 

All of the value of the buildings, structures, and other improvements situated on the Project Area shall be exempt from local and municipal real property taxation, other than assessments for local improvements and land value, for a period of twenty years, during the last ten years of which such exemption shall decrease in equal annual decrements.  Such exemption shall commence on the January 1st or July 1st (whichever shall first occur) following the date that Sponsor acquires the entire Project Area.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no exemption shall be granted hereunder if the cost of such rehabilitation is less than the assessed value of such building as determined in the tax year immediately preceding the grant of the tax exemption hereunder.
