-i. Queens Boulevard Rezoning and
:>· ltlrge-Scale General Development Special Permit
69-02 Queens Boulevard, Woodside, NY
February 2018

1. Introduction

This is an application by the 69-02 Queens Blvd Woodside LLC (the "Developer"), the owner of
the property located on the south side of Queens Boulevard between 69th Street and 70th Street
(Block 2432, Lots 1, 8, 9, 21, 41, 44, and 50) (the "Project Area") 1• The Project Area is located
in an R7X/C2-3 and Ml-1 zoning districts. The Developer plans to construct two mixed
residential and commercial buildings with a total of 561 dwelling units (169 of which would be
affordable) (the "Proposed Project") on the 71,862 sq.-ft. (1.65 acres) within the Development
Site. In order to facilitate the construction of the Proposed Project the following land use actions
are being sought:

i. Zoning Map Amendment to change the zoning of a portion of Block 2432 from an
Ml-1 zoning district to an R7X zoning district with a C2-3 overlay;

11. Zoning Text Amendment to Appendix F to establish a Mandatory Inclusionary


Housing ("MIH'') designated area (Option 2); and

m. Large-Scale General Development Special Permit pursuant to Zoning Resolution


("ZR") Section 74-743 to modify the applicable height and setback regulations.

2. Background

The Project Area began in 1961 as an M 1-1 zoning district and remained as such until June 29,
2006, when the City Council adopted the Maspeth Woodside Rezoning (Z060294ZMQ), which
rezoned the northern half of the Project Area to R7X/C2-3 within an Inclusionary Housing
designated area. There have been no relevant, recently approved land use applications within a
600-foot radius of the Project Area by CPC, the Board of Standards and Appeals ("BSA") or the
NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission ("LPC"). There have been other rezoning application
approved in Queen Community Board 2, including the Barnett Avenue Rezoning in 2015
(Cl6010ZMQ), 49th Avenue Rezoning in 2014 (Cl40275ZMQ) and the Sunnyside/Woodside
Rezoning in 2011 (Cl 10207ZMQ).
1
As requested, Lot I has been included in the requested map amendment, making it part of the Project Area;
however, it is excluded from the boundaries of the text amendment to establish the Mandatory lnclusionary Housing
designated area and it will not be part of the zoning lot subject to the requested Large-Scale General Development
Special Permit. The MIH text amendment and the Large-Scale General Development Special Permit will apply to
Block 2432, Lots 8, 9, 21, 41, 44, and 50, making that smaller parcel the "Development Site". The map amendment
will not include Lots 8 and 9 and portions of Lots 50, 41 and 44, as areas of Block 2432 within 150 feet of Queens
Boulevard are already located within an R7X/C2-3 district. Thus, M 1-1 portions of Lots 50, 41 and 44, and all of
Lot I will be referred to herein as the "Rezoning Area".

NY 76889568v1
Project Description (Attachment 3)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

3. Description of the Surrounding Area

The Project Area is located in the far east corner of Queens Community District 2. Land uses
within a 600-foot radius of the Project Area (the "Study Area") include a mix of residential,
industrial and manufacturing, and transportation uses. One- and two-family residences
predominate north and southwest of the site, except along Queens Boulevard, which includes
mostly commercial and automotive uses. The elevated tracks for the Long Island Railroad
("LIRR") are located within the southwestern portion of the Project Area; light manufacturing
uses predominate directly south of the tracks. A variety of institutional uses are located
southeast of the Project Area, including Little Flock Church, Saint Mary's Church, the School
for Language & Communication Development and SCO Family Services. The nearest multi-
family elevator building is located on the block directly west of the Project Area.

The Study Area is characterized by a predominance of residence districts, including R4- l, R4,
RS, and R7X zoning districts. There is a C2-3 commercial overlay along Queens Boulevard and
an Ml-1 zoning district covering the southern portion of the Project Area and several blocks
south and west of the Project Area.

The public park nearest the Project Area is Sperge Park, which is located north of the Project
Area across Queens Boulevard and Sherry Park, which is located on the block directly west of
Sperge Park. The Study Area and the Project Area in particular are well served by public bus
service, including the Q47 that runs north-south along 69th Street, the Q60 and X63 that run
east-west along Queens Boulevard, and the Q 18 that runs along 66th Place. The bus stop for the
northbound Q47 and eastbound Q60 abuts the northwestern corner of the Project Area. Finally,
the Woodside station for the LIRR is less than one mile northwest of the Project Area.

4. Description of the Proposed Project Area

The Project Area is located in the Borough of Queens in Community District 2. It is located
south of Queens Boulevard and is bounded by 69th Street, 70th Street, 47th Avenue and Queens
Boulevard. The Project Area currently is underdeveloped in terms of floor area and is occupied
by several one-story industrial and commercial buildings. The northern portion of the Project
Area, zoned R7X/C2-3, within an Inclusionary Housing designated area, is improved with a one-
and-one-half-story restaurant with approximately 3,935 sq. ft. of floor area, two one-story service
station buildings with a combined floor area of approximately 4,335 sq. ft., a one-story retail
store with approximately 3,790 sq. ft. of floor area, three two-story mixed retail and residential
buildings with approximately 3,200 sq. ft. of floor area, 1,840 sq. ft. of floor area, and 2,218 sq.
ft. of floor area, respectively, and a two-and-one-half story residential building with
approximately 1,404 sq. ft. of floor area. The southern portion of the Project Area, zoned Ml-I,
is improved with a two-story commercial building with approximately 2,240 sq. ft. of floor area,
a one-story warehouse with approximately 10,943 sq. ft. of floor area, a two-story community
center with approximately 10,943 sq. ft. of floor area, a surface parking lot, and a berm and the
tracks for the LIRR. As the existing M 1-1 zoning district does not allow residential uses as-of-
right, the Proposed Project would not be permitted under existing zoning. The proposed

2
NV 76889568v1
Project Description (Attachment 3)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

R7X/C2-3 zoning district would pennit a maximum residential Floor Area Ratio ("FAR") of 6.0
with the provision of Mandatory Inclusionary Housing; a maximum commercial FAR of 2.0; and
a maximum community facility FAR of 5.0. The proposed rezoning to R7X/C2-3 will be
consistent with the existing R7X/C2-3 district on the northern portion of the Project Area. The
Proposed Project would create a mixed-use development, providing affordable housing and retail
establishments catering to the local population.

In 2006, the City rezoned dozens of blocks along Queens Boulevard and north and south of the
Project Area under the Maspeth-Woodside rezoning. The northern portion of the Project Area
was rezoned from Ml-I to its current R7X/C2-3 designation. The proposed rezoning of the
balance of the Project Area from M 1-1 to R 7X/C2-3 is a logical extension of the 2006 rezoning
of the Project Area, with a compelling land use rationale, as described below.

5. Description of the Proposed Development Site

As noted above, the Development Site comprises all lots within the Project Area except Lot 1,
which lot includes the berm and the tracks of the LIRR. The Development Site currently is
underdeveloped in tenns of floor area and is occupied by several one-story industrial and
commercial buildings. The northern portion of the Development Site, zoned R 7X/C2-3 within
an Inclusionary Housing designated area, is improved with a one-and-one-half-story restaurant
with approximately 3,935 sq. ft. of floor area, two one-story service station buildings with a
combined floor area of approximately 4,335 sq. ft., a one-story retail store with approximately
3,790 sq. ft. of floor area, three two-story mixed retail and residential buildings with
approximately 3,200 sq. ft. of floor area, 1,840 sq. ft. of floor area, and 2,218 sq. ft. of floor area,
respectively, and a two-and-one-half story residential building with approximately 1,404 sq. ft.
of floor area.

The southern portion of the Development Site, zoned Ml-I, is improved with a two-story
commercial building with approximately 2,240 sq. ft. of floor area, a one-story warehouse with
approximately I 0,943 sq. ft. of floor area, a two-story community center with approximately
10,943 sq. ft. of floor area, and a surface parking lot.

As the existing M 1-1 zoning district does not allow residential uses as-of-right, the Proposed
Project would not be permitted under existing zoning. The proposed R7X/C2-3 zoning district
would permit a maximum residential Floor Area Ratio ("FAR") of 6.0 with the provision of
Mandatory Inclusionary Housing; a maximum commercial FAR of 2.0; and a maximum
community facility FAR of 5.0. The proposed rezoning to R7X/C2-3 will be consistent with the
existing R7X/C2-3 district on the northern portion of the Development Site. The Proposed
Project would create a mixed-use development occupying the entire Development Site, and
provide affordable housing and retail establishments catering to the local population.

6. Description of the Proposed Project

The Developer has filed this application to facilitate the redevelopment of an underutilized
stretch of Queens Boulevard with a medium density, mixed-use development. The several tax

3
NY 76889568v1
Project Description (Attachment 3)
Project ID: P20 J6Q04 l 3

lots that comprise the Development Site will be merged into a single zoning lot that will contain
approximately 71,984 sq. ft. of lot area. The Proposed Project will comply in all respects with
the applicable provisions of the ZR, except height and setback, as discussed below.

The Proposed Project comprises two L-shaped towers situated at the northwest and southeast
comers of the Development Site, with a central landscaped open space for the use of residents
and a landscaped public walkway at the southwest comer of the Development Site, which will be
available to the general public and which serves as a buffer from the LIRR embankment and
tracks. The building at the southeast comer (the "East Tower") will rise 14 stories. The building
at the northwest tower (the "West Tower") will rise 17 stories. The East Tower and the West
Tower will have a total of 431,904 sq. ft. of floor area (6.0 FAR), including 426,264 sq. ft. of
residential floor area and 5,640 sq. ft. of commercial floor area (0.08 FAR). A total of 561
dwelling units are proposed, 30 percent of which (169 dwelling units) will be considered
"affordable" under the applicable MIH provisions of the ZR.

The East Tower will have a maximum base height of 118'-6" and a maximum building height of
151 '-6". The West Tower will have a maximum base height of 138'-6" and a maximum
building height of 181 '-6". Height and setback relief is requested to allow setbacks for both the
East and West Towers above the maximum permitted base height (105'-0") and heights above
the maximum permitted building height (140'-0"). The East Tower is set back five feet at grade
to accommodate plantings and stoops, which will activate the street and create neighborhood
texture. Ground floor commercial with generous windows will front on Queens Boulevard and
help activate the area around the Development Site and improve the pedestrian experience. A
total of 242 accessory parking spaces are proposed (two more than are required), all of which
will be located in facility beneath the central open space and the buildings. A curb cut will be
provided on 69th Street to access the accessory off-street parking facility.

7. Actions Necessary to Facilitate the Proposed Project

In order to facilitate the proposed redevelopment of the Project Area, the following actions are
necessary:

i. Zoning Map Amendment to change the zoning of Block 2432 from an Ml-1 zoning
district to an R7X zoning district with a C2-3 overlay;

11. Zoning Text Amendment to Appendix F to establish a Mandatory Inclusionary


Housing (MIH) designated area (Option 2) on the Project Area; and

iii. Large-Scale General Development Special Permit pursuant to ZR Section 74-743 to


modify the applicable height and setback regulations.

1. Zoning Map Amendment

The Developer proposes to rezone the Rezoning Area from an M 1-1 zoning district to an
R7X/C2-3 zoning district. This zoning map amendment would allow for the construction of the

4
NY 76889568v1
Project Description (Attachment 3)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

Proposed Project, which is not permitted under the existing M 1-1 use and bulk regulations.
Rezoning the Rezoning Area from Ml-1 to R7X/C2-3 is a logical extension of the 2006 rezoning
discussed hereinabove, which rezoned the northern portion half of the subject block (and the
majority of the Development Site) from Ml-I to R7X/C2-3. The area of the proposed rezoning
has many of the same characteristics as the areas that were part of the 2006 rezoning, including
proximity to a similar-or in this case identical-zoning designation, proximity a major, wide
thoroughfare and an elevated railway, and above-average access to public transportation. As
such, the planning rationales for the proposed rezoning are compelling. Furthermore, the LIRR
separates the portion currently zoned as M 1-1 on the Rezoning Area from the rest of the M 1-1
areas locate to the south of the elevated railway, resulting in a small, discrete M 1-1 portion
amongst residential and commercial districts.

The proposed R7X designation would be consistent with nearby residential and commercial
districts, including the R7X district that is mapped along the north and south sides of Queens
Boulevard from 50th Street to just north of 73rd Street (including the northern half of the subject
block). The maximum allowable building height available under the R7X is appropriate for the
Rezoning Area given the its frontage along the Long Island Railroad to the south and consistency
with the height already permitted along Queens Boulevard.

The proposed C2-3 overlay would be appropriate from a planning perspective, as it is consistent
with the C2-3 districts mapped along Queens Boulevard to varying depths along cross streets.
The C2-3 designation, which allows for a broad range of locally-oriented commercial uses,
creates flexibility in programming the ground floor spaces, and the commercial uses can be
changed according to the evolving needs of the residents of the Rezoning Area and the local
population. Ground floor residential use would not be desirable, given the Rezoning Area's
frontage along Queens Boulevard to the north and the LIRR to the south.

The proposed rezoning would have a positive effect on land use by facilitating the reactivation of
a historically underutilized stretch of Queens Boulevard. The Proposed Project that would be
compatible with the existing residential uses in the R7X district and R4 and RS districts that are
located north and south of the Rezoning Area, as well as the mixed residential and commercial
uses that characterize the surrounding neighborhood.

ii. Zoning Text Amendment

Also proposed is a zoning text amendment to Appendix F to establish an MIH designated area
(Option 2) within Queens Community District 2 (Zoning Map 9d), coterminous with the
boundaries of the Development Site. The creation of affordable housing is one of the City's core
planning objectives. Under MIH, a site within an R7X zoning district permits an increase in the
maximum FAR from 3.75 FAR without lnclusionary Housing-or 5.0 FAR with Inclusionary
Housing-to 6.0 FAR (ZR Sections 23-154(b) and 23-154(d)(2). The proposed text amendment
to Appendix F would facilitate the creation 561 dwelling units, 169 of which would be
affordable.

iii. Large-Scale General Development Special Permit

5
NY 76889568v1
Project Description (Attachment 3)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

In addition to the proposed text and map amendments discussed hereinabove, the Proposed
Project requires a special pennit under ZR Section 74-743(a)(2) to modify the height and setback
requirements applicable in an R7X/C2-3 zoning district.2 The Proposed Project seeks relief from
the maximum base height and maximum building height requirements of the R7X/C2-3 district
(ZR Section 23-664(a)(3) and 23-664(b)) and relief from the required setbacks at certain
locations (ZR Section 23-662(c)( 1). As set forth in the Statement of Findings, the Proposed
Project satisfies each and every one of the applicable provisions of ZR Section 74-743. The
proposed large-scale general development special permit will apply throughout the Development
Site.

8. Conclusion

The proposed rezoning, MIH text amendment, and large-scale general development special
permit modifying height and setback regulations will facilitate the construction of two mixed
residential and commercial facility buildings, which will bring 561 dwelling units (including 169
units of affordable housing) to a historically underdeveloped area of Queens. The proposal is
consistent in terms of use and bulk, as modified by the requested special permit pursuant to ZR
Section 74-743, with the residential and commercial uses directly north, south, and west of the
Development Site, and the ground floor commercial uses will bring much-needed services to an
underserved area.

2
The threshold large-scale general development lot size and ownership requirements of ZR Sections 12-1 O
(definition of"large-scale general development") and 74-742 are satisfied, as the Developer owns or has an option
to purchase all tax lots within the 1.65-acre Project Area.

Queens Boulevard Rezoning and


Large-Scale General Development Special Permit
69-02 Queens Boulevard, Woodside, NY
February 2018

STATEMENT OF FINDINGS
Special Permit pursuant to ZR Section 74-743

74-743
Special provisions for bulk modification
(a) For a #large-scale general development#, the City Planning Commission may permit:

***
(2) location of #buildings# without regard for the applicable #yard#, #court#, distance
between #buildings#, or height and setback regulations;

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

(1) the distribution of #floor area#, #open space#, #dwelling units#, #rooming units# and
the location of #buildings#, primary business entrances and #show windows# will result in
a better site plan and a better relationship among #buildings# and open areas to adjacent
#streets#, surrounding development, adjacent open areas and shorelines than would be
possible without such distribution and will thus benefit both the occupants of the #large-
scale general development#, the neighborhood and the City as a whole;

The Special Pennit would modify the underlying R7X/C2-3 zoning district height
and setback regulations within the large-scale general development plan, and
would facilitate construction of two mixed-use buildings on the Development
Site, at a maximum base height of 118'-6" and 138'-6", and a maximum building
height of 151 '-6" and 181 '-6". The height and setback relief for both the buildings
above the maximum pennitted base height (105'-0") and building height (140'-
0") will ensure a more rational distribution of floor area, a better site plan, a better
relationship among the buildings on the Development Site and the surrounding
areas and maximize both open space and number of dwelling units.

A description of the existing buildings and open areas in the vicinity of the
Development Site is essential in establishing the context in which the Proposed
Project will be situated and demonstrating the necessity of the requested relief.
Queens Boulevard, a major thoroughfare with a width of 200'-0" is located north
1
NY 76889602v1
Statement of Findings (Attachment 11)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

of the Development Site. A nine-story mixed residential and commercial building


is under construction on the subject block directly northeast of the Development
Site. Directly southwest of the Proposed Development on the subject block
(along the north side of 47th Avenue) are the elevated Long Island Railroad
("LIRR") rail tracks, which may be considered inaccessible open space. The
south side of 4 7th Avenue includes, in addition the continuation of the elevated
LIRR tracks, a three-story multiple dwelling and a one-story industrial building.
The east side of 70th Street is occupied by a one-story dwelling, two adjacent
vacant lots, a two-story multiple dwelling, and one-story manufacturing building.
The west side of 69th Street is dominated by the LIRR tracks and includes one
small one-story commercial surrounded by a parking lot and a one-story
residential building.

Thus, aside from LIRR tracks and vacant lots, the Development Site is surrounded
by exceedingly little open space. Accordingly, a site plan emphasizing open space
was created, in the form of a 28,170 sq.-ft. central landscaped open space for
building residents and a 7,336 sq.-ft. landscaped pedestrian walkway for the
general public. In maximizing open space, bulk was shifted to the comers of the
Development Site, resulting in slightly taller buildings with different setbacks
than are permitted under the R7X bulk regulations; hence, the requested waivers.
Importantly, the proposed minimum base heights and setbacks at 85' -0" along all
street walls are meant to provide a gradual step-up between the historic low-rise
character of the area and the increased heights that will accompany the higher
densities contemplated by the Maspeth-Woodside Rezoning. Similarly, the 47th
Avenue frontage includes townhouse-style private entrances with stoops and
plantings, a reference to the built character of the R4 and RS districts in the
vicinity of the Development Site. These elements will also serve to activate the
street and create neighborhood texture.

The configuration of the site plan and the buildings will benefit the surrounding
neighborhood by preserving existing access to light and air, creating a visual
buffer between the LIRR and nearby predominantly residential streets, and
improving the pedestrian experience by activating the ground floors with
commercial uses, accessory residential spaces, and green spaces. The careful
architectural and planning choices reflected in the design will integrate the
Development Site into the surrounding area and create a benchmark for future
developments along Queens Boulevard and within the surrounding area.

(2) the distribution of #floor area# and location of #buildings# will not unduly increase the
#bulk# of #buildings# in any one #block# or unduly obstruct access of light and air to the
detriment of the occupants or users of #buildings# in the #block# or nearby #blocks# or of
people using the public #streets#;

The distribution of floor area and location of the buildings on the Development
Site will not unduly increase the bulk of buildings in any one block. The
Development Site is comprised of a portion of a single block and the buildings are

2
NY 76889602v1
Statement of Findings (Attachment 11)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

massed in accordance with the R7X/C2-3 regulations, except where increases in


height or modified setbacks were necessary to maximize open space.

The distribution of floor area and location of the buildings on the Development
Site will not unduly obstruct access of light and air to the detriment of the
occupants or users of building in the block or of nearby blocks or of people using
the public streets. As noted above, the proposed height and setbacks of the
buildings and the configuration of the site plan create light, air, and view corridors
for the residents of the Proposed Project and the surrounding buildings. The bulk
of the height and setback relief is sought for the West Tower, which abuts Queens
Boulevard and the LIRR tracks. As such, the increased height and modified
setback for the West Tower will not impact any nearby residents on the block or
on any nearby block, or any people using the public streets. The East Tower
requires minimal (one floor above the permitted height) but necessary relief in
order to achieve the maximum number of dwelling units. Any impact of the
additional height of the Proposed Project is mitigated by the substantial open
spaces provided in the center of the Development Site.

(3) where a #zoning lot# of a #large-scale general development# does not occupy a frontage
on a mapped #street#, appropriate access to a mapped #street# is provided;

Not Applicable - The large-scale general development will have frontage on


several mapped streets.

(4) considering the size of the proposed #large-scale general development#, the #streets#
providing access to such #large-scale general development# will be adequate to handle
traffic resulting therefrom;

The four streets on which the Proposed Project will front will be more than
adequate to handle the traffic resulting therefrom. As noted above, the Proposed
Project has frontage along Queens Boulevard to the north, 69th Street to the west,
70th Street to the east, and 47th Avenue to the south, and includes an at-grade
parking garage (242 parking spaces using stackers) with a driveway on 69th
Street. Queens Boulevard is a critical artery for the surrounding area, connecting
to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (1-278) to the west and the Long Island
Expressway (1-495) to the east.

Based on trip generation, the proposed retail and residential uses will generate the
maximum number of trips during the weekday a.m. peak hour. In total, the
proposed uses would generate up to approximately 490 person trips (36 from
retail and 454 from residential), during the weekday a.m. peak hour. These person
trips include public transit, auto, taxis, bicycle, and walk trips. Based on U.S.
Census Journey to Work (JTW) data, the auto share for the study area is
approximately 31 percent for commute to work, which will be also applicable to
the Proposed Project's residents. These residents will utilize the on-site parking
on a daily basis and will have a convenient access to the garage via the curb cut

3
NY 76889602v1
Statement of Findings (Attachment 11)
Project ID: P2016Q0413

on 69th Street between Queens Boulevard and 47th Avenue. This curb cut will
adequately accommodate the parking generated vehicular activity from the
Proposed Project.

The Proposed Project would generate approximately 136 vehicle trips during the
weekday AM peak hour. It is anticipated that approximately 60 percent of the
vehicle trips would arrive at the access driveway from the north via the
intersection of Queens Boulevard and 69th Street, and approximately 40 percent
would arrive from the south via the intersection of 4 7th Avenue and 69th Street.
The vehicular traffic leaving the Development Site would also utilize similar
routes. Given this low level of overall peak hour vehicular activity, the study area
intersections and roadways are adequate to serve the traffic volumes generated by
the Proposed Project.

The net increase in traffic generated by the Proposed Project was also analyzed
per CEQR specified Level-I and Level-2 screening criteria. Based on these
criteria, the level of vehicle trip activity attributed to the Proposed Project is
below the CEQR thresholds during the four analysis peak hours to undertake any
detailed analyses. Therefore, the net increase in traffic volumes per the CEQR
criteria would not result in potentially significant adverse traffic impacts.

The Development Site is well-served by New York City Transit (NYCT) bus
lines, which include the Q47 bus line that runs north-south on 69th Street; the
Q60 bus line that runs east-west on Queens Boulevard; and the QI 8 bus line that
runs on 65th Place, three blocks west of the Development Site. The northbound
Q47 and eastbound Q60 buses stop on the northwestern comer of the
Development Site at the intersection of 69th Street and Queens Boulevard. The
Development Site is also served by the NYCT subway, including the No. 7
subway line (69 St-Fisk Avenue Station), approximately 0.5 miles to the north at
Roosevelt Avenue and 69th Street; and the E, F, M, R, and 7 subway lines
(Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue/74 St-Broadway station complex),
approximately 0.7 miles to the north at Roosevelt Avenue and 74th Street. In
addition, the Woodside stop of the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) is approximately
0. 7 miles to the northwest of the Development Site.

Based on U.S. Census Journey to Work data, approximately 63 percent of the


residents of the Proposed Project would use mass transit to commute to work.
This will include approximately 53 percent using subway, eight percent using bus,
and the remaining 2 percent using railroad. Therefore, based on the trip generation
assessment and census database, majority of the Proposed Project-generated trips
would utilize mass transit options in the study area for commuting.

(5) when the Commission has determined that the #large-scale general development#
requires significant addition to existing public facilities serving the area, the applicant has
submitted to the Commission a plan and timetable to provide such required additional

4

facilities. Proposed facilities that are incorporated into the City's capital budget may be
included as part of such plan and timetable;

The proposed addition to existing public facilities serving the area will be
developed within the same timeframes as the Proposed Project, namely, a
beautification of the public walkway abutting the Long Island Railroad
embankment at the southwest comer of the Development Site.

(6) where the Commission permits the maximum #floor area ratio# in accordance with the
provisions of paragraph (a)(4) of this Section, the #open space# provided is of sufficient size
to serve the residents of new or #enlarged buildings#. Such #open space# shall be accessible
to and usable by all residents of such new or #enlarged buildings#, have appropriate access,
circulation, seating, lighting and paving, and be substantially landscaped. Furthermore, the
site plan of such #large-scale general development# shall include superior landscaping for
#open space# of the new or #enlarged buildings#;

Not Applicable - This finding is only applicable to a large-scale general


development located in Community Districts 2 or 7 in Manhattan, or Queens
Community District 7. The Proposed Project is located in Queens Community
District 2

(7) where the Commission permits the exclusion of #lot area# or #floor area# in accordance
with the provisions of paragraph (a)(S) 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 lnclusionary Housing Program and those of Section 74-
74 (Large-Scale General Development) with respect to better site planning;

Not Applicable - This finding is only applicable in an lnclusionary Housing


designated area in C4-6, and CS zoning districts, and a C4-7 zoning district within
the boundaries of Manhattan Community District 7. The Proposed Project is
located in Queens Community District 2.

(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)(9) 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 will benefit the residents of the #large-scale
general development#;

Not Applicable - This finding is only applicable within Community District 3 in


the Bronx. The Proposed Project is located in Queens Community District 2.

(9) where the Commission permits a #floor area# bonus for a #public park# improvement
in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (a)(ll) of this Section: (i) the amount of

such bonus #floor area# is appropriate in relation to the size and quality of the proposed
#public park# improvement; and (ii) such bonus #floor area# will not unduly increase the
#bulk# of #buildings# on the #zoning lot# or unduly obstruct access of light and air to the
detriment of the occupants or users of #buildings# on the #block# or nearby #blocks# or of
people using the public #streets#. Grant of a #floor area# bonus for a #public park#
improvement in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (a)(ll) of this Section shall be
conditioned upon adequate assurances for provision of the funding identified by the
Commissioner of Parks and Recreation in a letter pursuant to paragraph (a)(ll)(ii) of this
Section as necessary for completion of the necessary infrastructure, landscape and other
work for the #public park# improvement. The Commissioner of Buildings shall not issue a
building permit for the #large-scale development# unless the Commissioner of Parks and
Recreation shall have certified that the funding has been made or secured in a manner
acceptable to such Commissioner;

Not Applicable - This finding is only applicable within a Cl-9 zoning district
entirely within the boundaries of Community District 8 in Manhattan. The
Proposed Project is located in Queens Community District 2.

(10) 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; and

A declaration with regard to ownership requirements in paragraph (b) of the large-


scale general development definition in Section 12-10 is submitted herewith.

(11) where the Commission permits #floor area# distribution from a #zoning lot#
containing existing light industrial #buildings# to be demolished in accordance with the
provisions of paragraph (a)(l2) of this Section, such #floor area# distribution shall
contribute to better site planning of the waterfront public access area and shall facilitate
the #development# of affordable housing units within a #large-scale general development#.

Not Applicable - This applicability of this finding is limited to Community


District I in the Borough of Queens, in the area generally north of 30th Road and
west of 8th Street, within the Hallets Point Peninsula. The Proposed Project is
