THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK

RESOLUTION NO. 1815

 

Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 210351 ZMM, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 864).

 

By Council Members Salamanca and Moya

 

                     WHEREAS, New York Blood Center, Inc., filed an application pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 8c, by changing from an R8B District to a C2-7 District and changing from a C1-9 District to a C2-8 District, which in conjunction with the related action would facilitate the development of a new, modern headquarters for the New York Blood Center and a commercial life sciences hub located at 310 East 67th Street (Block 1441, Lot 40) in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Community District 8 (ULURP No. C 210351 ZMM) (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 27, 2021 its decision dated September 22, 2021 (the "Decision") on the Application;

 

WHEREAS, the Application is related to application N 210352 ZRM (L.U. No. 865), a zoning text amendment to allow scientific research and development facilities in C2-7 Districts and allow related use and bulk modifications, and to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; and C 210353 ZSM (L.U. No. 866), a zoning special permit pursuant to Section 74-48 of the Zoning Resolution to allow a scientific research and development facility and to allow modification of the height and setback regulations of Section 33-432;

 

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

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 20, 2021;

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use 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 November 13th, 2020 (CEQR No. 21DCP080M) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 10, 2021, in which significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality, and noise would be avoided through the placement of (E) designations (E-612) on the project sites.  To ensure the implementation of the PCREs the applicant will enter into a Restrictive Declaration at the time of the approval of land use-related actions and prior to issuance of any permits.  The proposed project as analyzed in the FEIS identified significant adverse impacts with respect to shadows and construction (noise) and to ensure the implementation of the mitigation measures identified in the FEIS, they are included in the Restrictive Declaration. The Council has also considered the Technical Memorandum dated November 16, 2021 (the “Technical Memorandum”).

 

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     Having considered the FEIS and Technical Memorandum 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)                     From among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the action to be approved is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

3)                     The adverse environmental impacts revealed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval those mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.

 

The Decision, together with the FEIS and Technical Memorandum 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 the report, C 210351 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.

 

The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section No. 8c:

 

1.                     changing from an R8B District to a C2-7 District property bounded by East 67th Street, a line 325 feet easterly of Second Avenue, East 66th Street and a line 100 feet easterly of Second Avenue; and

 

2.                     changing from a C1-9 District to a C2-8 District property bounded by East 67th Street, a line 100 feet easterly of Second Avenue, East 66th Street, Second Avenue, East 66th Street, and a line 100 feet westerly of Second Avenue;

 

as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated April 19, 2021, and subject to the conditions of CEQR Declaration E-612, Borough of Manhattan, Community District 8.

 

Adopted.
