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

 

pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the disposition of such property to a developer selected by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development to facilitate development of two, four-story buildings, tentatively known as Malta Street Apartments, with approximately 47 low-income residential units, to be developed under the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s Cornerstone Program (the "Disposition"), Community District 5, Borough of Brooklyn  (ULURP No. C 050267 HAK) (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the Application and Decision are subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on June 16, 2005;
