By Council Members Katz and Avella

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 10, 2004 its decision dated September 8, 2004 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by IKEA Property, Inc., pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment to the Zoning Map (ULURP No. C 030413 ZMK) (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the Application is related to ULURP Applications Numbers C 030412 MMK (L.U. No. 272), an amendment to the City Map; C 030414 ZSK (L.U. No. 274), a special permit to allow a large retail establishment in an M1-1 District; C 030415 ZSK (L.U. No. 275), a special permit to modify the waterfront bulk regulations; and N 030416 ZAK (L.U. No. 276), an authorization to modify the waterfront public access and visual corridor regulations;

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 October 5, 2004;

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

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 August 27, 2004 (CEQR No. 03DCP041K);


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 Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, the Council approves the Decision.

The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section Nos. 16a and 16b, changing from an M3-1 District to an M1-1 District property bounded by Beard Street, Halleck Street, a line 300 feet westerly of Columbia Street, a line 550 feet southerly of Halleck Street and its easterly prolongation, Columbia Street, a line 1190 feet southerly of Halleck Street and its easterly and westerly prolongation, and the southwesterly prolongation of a line 200 feet northwesterly of Dwight Street, as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated April 26, 2004, Community District 6, Borough of Brooklyn.
