CALENDAR ITEM 1 –– EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT WAREHOUSE (170352 PQK)
An application submitted by the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter, seeks approval for site selection and acquisition of property located at 930 Flushing Avenue in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn Community District 4 (CD 4). Such actions would facilitate the continued use of the property as an emergency management warehouse and extension of such use to additional floor space.
CALENDAR ITEM 2 –– BEDFORD UNION ARMORY (170416 ZMK, 170417 ZRK, 170418 ZSK, 170419 ZSK, 170420 PPK)
Applications submitted by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC), pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, seeking: a zoning map amendment to change an existing R6 district to an R7-2 district with a C2-4 commercial overlay; a zoning text amendment to establish a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; a special permit to modify the height and setback requirements, and a special permit to reduce the number of required accessory, off-street, residential parking spaces from 129 to 118. Additionally, the New York City Department of Citywide Administration (DCAS) seeks the disposition of City-owned property at 1555 Bedford Avenue in the Crown Heights neighborhood of CD 9. Such actions would facilitate the redevelopment of the Bedford Union Armory into mixed-use development. The armory shed and head house would contain 57,700 square feet of recreational facilities, 25,000 square feet of commercial office space, and 25,000 square feet of community facility space. Additionally, the proposed actions would facilitate two new residential buildings, a condominium building along President Street in place of the horse stables that would contain 60 dwelling units, with 20 percent of the units set aside as affordable homeownership residences, and a through-block, multi-family, mixed-income rental building on the site of existing garage building, containing 330 dwelling units, with 50 percent of the units affordable to households earning on average 80 percent of area median income (AMI).

Applications submitted by Harrison Realty LLC, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, seek a zoning map amendment to change the existing M3-1 district to a combination of R7A, R7D, and R8A zoning districts, all with C2-4 commercial overlays, and a zoning text amendment to establish an MIH area of two blocks in the South Williamsburg neighborhood of CD 1. Such actions would facilitate the development of eight mixed-use, residential and commercial buildings varying in height from five to 14 stories. The buildings would contain 62,800 square feet of commercial retail space and 1,146 dwelling units, 25 percent of which would be set aside for median rents based on households earning 60 percent of AMI. Ten percent of the housing units would be prioritized for households earning up to 40 percent of AMI. The development will include 404 accessory self-parking spaces below grade and on the first floor.
