WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on November 17, 2021 its decision dated November 17, 2021 (the "Decision") on the Application;

 

                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 220062 ZMK (Pre. L.U. No. 929),                     a zoning map amendment to (a) rezone an M3-1 zoning district to a C6-2 zoning district; and (b) rezone an M3-1 zoning district to a M1-4 zoning district; N 220063 ZRK (Pre.

No. 930), a zoning text amendment to establish the project area as a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; allow an LSGD that does not meet the ownership requirements of Zoning Resolution (ZR) Section 74-742, and allow new piers and in-water structures that are accessible to the public to generate floor area; C 220064 ZSK (L.U. No. 933), a special permit pursuant to ZR Section 74-74 to establish a LSGD, allow reconstructed piers to retain floor area, and modify bulk regulations; N 220065 ZAK (L.U. No. 934), an authorization pursuant to ZR Section 62-822(a) to modify regulations pertaining to the locations and dimensions of required waterfront public access areas; C 220070 ZSK (L.U.

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d of the City Charter;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on December 2, 2021;

 

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, including the Positive Declaration issued March 22nd, 2021 (CEQR No. 21DCP157K) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on November 5, 2021, in which significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality, and noise would be avoided through the placement of (E) designations (E-636) on the project sites. To ensure the implementation of the PCREs, the applicant will enter into a Restrictive Declaration at the time of the approval of land use-related actions and prior to issuance of any permits.  The proposed project as analyzed in the FEIS identified significant adverse impacts with respect to transportation (pedestrians, street user safety) and construction (noise) and to ensure the implementation of the mitigation measures identified in the FEIS, they are included in the Restrictive Declaration.

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

                      

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

 

(2)                     The environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS were evaluated in relation to the social, economic, and other considerations associated with the action[s] that are set forth in this report; and

 

(3)                     Consistent with social, economic and other essential considerations from among the reasonable alternatives available, the action is one which avoids or minimizes adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(4)                     The adverse environmental impacts identified in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, pursuant to the restrictive declaration dated November 15, 2021, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.

 

                     The Decision, together with the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this determination, 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, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in the report, C 220061 MLK, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission for a landfill of approximately 6,320 square feet located in the East River, in connection with a proposed mixed-use development, within a large-scale general development, on property generally bounded by North 3rd Street, River Street, North 1st Street, a line 200 feet northwesterly of River Street, Grand Ferry Park, and the U.S. Pierhead Line (Block 2355, Lots 1 and 20; Block 2361, Lots 1, 20 and 21; and Block 2376, Lot 50; and the demapped portions of Metropolitan Avenue and North 1st Street), in C6-2 District, Community District 1, Borough of Brooklyn.
