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 the development of a 6-story building, tentatively known as Cornerstone Site 1, with approximately 18 residential units to be developed under the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s Cornerstone Program (the "Disposition"), Community District 10, Borough of Manhattan  (ULURP No. C 050435 HAM) (the "Application");

The Council finds that the actions described herein will have no significant effect on the environment;
