BILL NUMBER:S7698

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the commissioner of general
services to sell certain land to Northeast Brooklyn Housing
Development Corporation

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to
transfer state property at 1024 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, New York to
the Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation (NEBHDCo) for
fair market value.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would convey state property
located at 1024 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, New York, for fair market
value to NEBHDCo, upon such terms and conditions as the commissioner
of the Office of General services may fix and determine.

The land shall not be transferred unless application is made by the
Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation within one year
after the effective date of this act.

JUSTIFICATION: The Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation
(NEBHDCo) plans to use this property for a mixed-use of affordable
housing for the elderly and veterans, with complimentary social
services and a mix of creative commercial and retail uses to provide a
variety of goods and services. This is an appropriate and productive
use of this unused state property. NEBHDCo's preliminary feasibility
analysis of housing needs for elderly population in New York State
indicated a growing demand for senior housing and assisted living
facilities that enable the elderly to age in their current communities
while being able to access necessary support services. Ultimately,
this project will benefit the dormant stretch of Fulton Street
corridor by spurring economic development in the area.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
