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 New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development to facilitate development of a six-story building, tentatively known as Knickerbocker Commons, with approximately 24 residential units and community facility space, to be developed under the New York State Housing Trust Fund Program (the "Disposition"), Community District 4, Borough of Brooklyn (ULURP No. C 100162 HAK) (the "Application");
