Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 180112 ZMM, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 52).


By Council Members Salamanca and Kallos


                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on March 16, 2018 its decision dated March 14, 2018 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 5d, changing from an R8B District to an R8A District, which in conjunction with the related actions would facilitate the development of two new 11-story buildings with affordable and supportive housing and community facility uses on 108th Street in the Manhattan Valley neighborhood of Manhattan Community District 7, (ULURP No. C 180112 ZMM), Community District 7, Borough of Manhattan (the "Application");


                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications N 180113 ZRM (L.U. No. 53), a zoning text amendment to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; and C 180114 HAM (L.U. No. 54), an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP) designation, project approval, and disposition of City-owned property to a developer selected by HPD;


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 March 27, 2018;


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 targeted Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on March 2, 2018 (CEQR No. 17HPD083M), which identified significant adverse impacts with respect to Construction (Noise) as shown in Exhibit A;




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, through the Land Disposition Agreement between HPD and the project sponsor, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable; and


(4)                     The Decision, together with 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 180112 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.


The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is hereby amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section No. 5d, changing from an R8B District to an R8A District property bounded by a line 100 feet easterly of Amsterdam Avenue, a line midway between West 109th Street and West 108th Street, a line 100 feet westerly of Columbus Avenue, and West 108th Street, as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated October 16, 2017, Community District 7, Borough of Manhattan.
