pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the disposition of such property to the New York City Economic Development Corporation to facilitate the development of a mixed-use project in Lower Manhattan within the former Washington Market Urban Renewal Area, Community District 1, Borough of Manhattan (the "Disposition") (ULURP No. C 040255 HAM) (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council its recommendations regarding the Application by submission dated July 21, 2004;

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on September 7, 2004;

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (“FEIS”) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on July 16, 2004 (CEQR No. 02DME003M); and

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

RESOLVED:

Having considered the FEIS, with respect to the Application, the Council finds that:

(1) The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;

From among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the actions to be approved are ones which minimize or avoid adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

The adverse environmental impacts revealed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval those mitigative 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 the decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).

Pursuant to Section 197-d, the Council approves the decision of the City Planning Commission (C 040255 HAM).

_________

The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the City of New York and that a designation of the Project as an urban development action area project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.

The Council approves the designation of the Disposition Area as an urban development action area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.
