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

                           

 

 

                     WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 3, 2011;

 

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

RESOLVED:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

(3)                     The adverse environmental impacts disclosed 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 September 1, 2011 described in the Resolutions for applications C 100312 ZSX, C 100313 ZSX, and C 110297 ZSX, and in addition with respect to application C 100310 ZMX, the three restrictive declarations dated September 1, 2011 and respectively executed by Boone West Farms LLC, 1903 West Farms LLC, and 1931 West Farms LLC, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.

 

The Decision and 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 this report, N 100311 ZRX, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.

Special provisions for bulk modification

 

(a)                      For a #large-scale general development#, the City Planning Commission may permit:

 

* * *

 

(7)                      modification of the definition of #outer court# in Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS) and the provisions of Section 23-84 (Outer Court Regulations) to include any open area that is bounded on all sides but one by #building# walls and is not otherwise a #yard# or an #inner court#, provided that:

 

* * *

 

(ii)                      the minimum distance between a #legally required window# facing onto such #outer court# and a #building# wall shall be 30 feet, measured in a horizontal plane at the sill level of, and perpendicular to, such window for the full width of the rough window opening; or

 

(8)                      in an #Inclusionary Housing designated area# in a C4-7 District within the boundaries of Manhattan Community District 7, for the purpose of applying the Inclusionary Housing Program within such #Inclusionary Housing designated area#, as set forth in a restrictive declaration:

 

* * *

 

(ii)                      modification of the requirements regarding distribution of #affordable housing units#, as defined in Section 23-911, specified in paragraph (b) of Section of Section 23-96 (Requirements for Generating Sites).; or

 

(9)                      within the boundaries of Community District 3 in the Bronx, portions of any #building#, at any level, that contain permitted or required #accessory# off-street parking spaces, to be excluded from the calculation of #lot coverage#.

 

* * *

(b)                      In order to grant a special permit pursuant to this Section for any #large-scale general development#, the Commission shall find that:

 

* * *

 

(7)                      where the Commission permits the exclusion of #lot area# or #floor area# in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (a)(5) of this Section or modification of the base and maximum #floor area ratios# or requirements regarding distribution of #affordable housing units# in accordance with paragraph (a)(8) of this Section, such modification will facilitate a desirable mix of #uses# in the #large-scale general development# and a plan consistent with the objectives of the Inclusionary Housing Program and those of Section 74-74 (Large-Scale General Development) with respect to better site planning; and

 

(8)                      where the Commission permits portions of #buildings# containing #accessory# parking spaces to be excluded from the calculation of #lot coverage# in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (a)(7) of this Section, the exclusion of #lot coverage# will result in a better site plan and a better relationship among #buildings# and open areas than would be possible without such exclusion and therefore benefit the residents of the #large-scale general development#; and

 

(8)(9)                      a declaration with regard to ownership requirements in paragraph (b) of the #large-scale general development# definition in Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS) has been filed with the Commission.
