                     b)                       an Urban Development Action Area Project for such area (the "Project");

 

to facilitate the development of a seven-story building tentatively known as Beatrice Castiglia Catullo Residence, with approximately 83 units of housing for senior citizens and one unit for a superintendent, to be developed under the HUD Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program, Community District 10, Borough of the Bronx (No. N 040229 HAX) (the "Application");
