By Council Members Salamanca and Adams

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on April 22, 2019  its decision dated April 10, 2019 (the "Decision"), on the revised application submitted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”) regarding city-owned property located at 199-207 Elizabeth Street, a.k.a 222-230 Mott Street (Block 493, Lot 30), (the “Disposition Area”), approving pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter the disposition of the Disposition Area to a developer to be selected by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, to facilitate the development of a mixed-use building with 123 affordable senior housing units, office space for nonprofit organizations, and approximately 6,700 square feet of publicly accessible open space at 199-207 Elizabeth Street/222-230 Mott Street (Block 493, Lot 30) in the Special Little Italy District (Preservation Area A) in Manhattan Community District 2 (ULURP No. C 190184 HAM) (the "Application");

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

WHEREAS, by letter dated April 1, 2019 and submitted to the Council on April 2, 2019, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application, requesting that the Council approve the sale of the Disposition Area to the Sponsor pursuant to Section 576-a(2) of the Private Housing Finance Law, including the submission of the project summary for the Project (the “Project Summary”);

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on May 2, 2019;

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

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the negative declaration issued November 9th, 2018 (CEQR No. 18HPD105M), (the “Negative Declaration”).

RESOLVED:

The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.

 

 

 

Pursuant to Section 197-d of the New York City Charter, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report C 190184 HAM, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision with the modification that the disposition is restricted to require the provision of a minimum of approximately 8,400 square feet of open space which shall be accessible to the public in perpetuity, of which a minimum of approximately 1,700 square feet need not be open to the sky.  Such approximately 1,700 square foot portion may be enclosed with building walls on no more than two sides and shall function as an entrance to the portion of open space that is open to the sky.  Such open space need not satisfy any defined term within the New York City Zoning Resolution (ZR), however, this shall not be construed to waive any applicable requirements of the ZR as applied to the Disposition Area.  

                     The Council approves the sale of the Disposition Area to the Sponsor pursuant to Section 576-a(2) of the Private Housing Finance Law, upon condition that the Project shall be developed in a manner consistent with the modified Project Summary, a copy of which is attached hereto and made a part hereof.

Adopted.
