By Council Members Salamanca and Riley

 

                       WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council April 5, 2021 its request dated April 5, 2021, pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law, that the Council approve an Amended Project as an Urban Development Area Project (the “Amended Project”) for property located at 50 East 112th Street, 60 East 112th Street, and 75 East 111th Street (Block 1617, Lots 20, 120, 125, and 140) (“Disposition Area”) (Formerly Lots 20, 22, 23, 25, 28, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 45, 46, 48, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 121, and 122), Community District 11, Borough of Manhattan (the “Disposition Area”):

 

                     WHEREAS, the request made by the New York City Department of Housing and Development is related to a previously approved City Council Resolution No. 1746 (L.U. No. 778) dated November 30, 2017 (the “Original Resolution”);

 

                        WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Amended Project on April 21, 2021; and

 

                        WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Amended Project.

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes of 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; and

                     

                     The Council approves the Amended Project as an Urban Development Action Area Project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.

 

The Amended Project shall be developed upon the terms and conditions in the Amended Project Summary that HPD has submitted to the Council on April 5, 2021, a copy of which is attached hereto.
