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 an eight-story building, with approximately 46 residential units to be developed under the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s Supportive Housing Loan Program (the "Disposition"), Community District 7, Borough of Manhattan (ULURP No. C 100452 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, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on November 22, 2010;

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