By Council Members Salamanca and Moya

 

                     WHEREAS, GO Broome, LLC and The Chinatown Planning Council Housing Development Fund Company, Inc., filed an application pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter and proposed for modification pursuant to Section 2-06(c)(1) of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedures for the grant of a special permit pursuant to Section 78-312 of the Zoning Resolution to allow floor area permitted by the applicable district regulations to be distributed without regard for zoning lot lines, to modify the height and setback requirements of Section 23-66 (Height and Setback Requirements for Quality Housing Buildings) and the distance between buildings requirements of Section 23-711 (Standard Minimum Distance Between Buildings), in connection with a proposed mixed use development on property located on the southerly side of Broome Street between Norfolk Street and Suffolk Street (Block 346, Lots 1, 37 & 75), within an existing large-scale residential development bounded by Broome Street, Suffolk Street, Grand Street and Essex Street (Block 346, Lots 1, 37, 75 & 95; and Block 351, Lot 1), in R8 and R9-1/C2-5 Districts, which in conjunction with the related actions would facilitate the development of two new mixed-use developments containing mostly residential uses, and community facility and commercial uses (the proposed development) in Manhattan Community District 3 (ULURP No. C 200061(A) ZSM) (the “Application”);

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on January 21, 2020, its decision dated January 21, 2020 (the “Decision”), on the Application;

 

                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 200064 ZMM (L.U. No. 607), a zoning map amendment to change an R8 district to an R9-1 district with a C2-5 overlay; and N 200065 ZRM (L.U. No. 608), a zoning text amendment to Appendix F; ZR Section 23-011, 28-01, and 78-03 to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area and allow use of the Quality Housing Program;

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has made the findings required pursuant to Sections 13-443, 78-311(e), 78-312, and 78-313 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on January 30, 2020;

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and environmental 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 on January 25, 2019 (CEQR No. 19DCP119M) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on January 10, 2020 which identified significant adverse impacts with respect to construction (vehicular traffic and noise) and transportation (vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic) and  significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality, and noise would be avoided through the placement of (E) designations (E-548) on the project sites.  In addition, the FEIS analyzed the amended application and concluded that the amended application would not change the conclusions of the FEIS and the significant adverse impact categories would remain the same and the identified significant adverse impacts and proposed mitigation measures are included in the Restrictive Declaration attached as Exhibit A and Exhibit B to the Decision.

 

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

 

(3)                     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 two Restrictive Declarations marked as Exhibit A and Exhibit B, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable and the placement of (E) designation (E-548) for hazardous materials, air quality, and noise; and

 

(4)                     No development pursuant to this resolution shall be permitted until the Restrictive Declarations attached as Exhibit A and Exhibit B, as same may be modified with any necessary administrative or technical changes, all as acceptable to Counsel to the Department of City Planning and Counsel to the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as executed by GO Broome LLC and The Chinatown Planning Council Housing Development Fund Company or its successor, and such Restrictive Declaration shall have been recorded and filed in the Office of the Register of the City of New York, County of New York.

 

                     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) of the SEQRA regulations.

 

                     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 200061(A) ZSM, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.

 

1.                     The property that is the subject of this application (C 200061(A) ZSM) shall be developed in size and arrangement substantially in accordance with the dimensions, specifications and zoning computations indicated on the following plans, prepared by Dattner Architects, filed with this application and incorporated in this resolution:
