By Council Members Comrie and Levin

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on March 26, 2010 its decision dated March 24, 2010 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter and Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State regarding:

 

a)                     the designation of property located at 302-304 East 2nd Street (Block 372, Lot 49), as an Urban Development Action Area (the "Area");

 

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 13-story mixed-use building, tentatively known as Houston Dee, with approximately 166 residential units (the "Disposition"), Community District 3, Borough of Manhattan (ULURP No. C 100173 HAM) (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;

 

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, on April 7, 2010, by letter dated March 22, 2010, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development submitted its requests respecting the Application;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on April 20, 2010;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Application;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental review (CEQR No. 07DCP078M), the FEIS for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 26, 2008, the Technical Memorandum dated December 10, 2009 and the City Planning Commission determination that the proposed project constitutes a minor modification to what was previously analyzed and would not result in any significant adverse impacts not previously identified in the FEIS.

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein shall have no significant effect on the environment.

 

                       Pursuant to Section 197-d, the Council approves the decision of the City Planning Commission (C 100173 HAM).

 

                       The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the City of New York and that a designation of the Project as an urban development action area project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                       The Council approves the designation of the Disposition Area as an urban development action area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                       The Council approves the Project as an urban development action area project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.
