On December 1, 2003, the Department of City Planning certified the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) applications for the Downtown Brooklyn Development Plan as complete. The applications were referred to Community Board 2 for a public hearing and a recommendation. Following the Community Board, the Brooklyn Borough President issued a recommendation approving the Plan with conditions/ modifications.

In response to comments received during the public review process, the Departments of City Planning and Housing Preservation and Development revised portions of the Plan on April 29, 2004. The revisions include deleting several existing and proposed urban renewal sites, removing proposed changes to urban renewal sites and removing two proposed rezonings.

On May 10, 2004, the City Planning Commission unanimously approved all of the actions of the Downtown Brooklyn Development Plan (read the CPC Reports and DPC Press Release). On June 28, 2004, the City Council adopted the proposal with a modification to the zoning text amendment. The modification establishes a building height limit of 400 feet south of Tillary Street, east of Flatbush Avenue Extension and north of Willoughby Street within the Special Downtown Brooklyn District (read the Mayor's Press Release on the plan's approval and new economic development in Downtown Brooklyn).

The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is available from the NYC Economic Development Corporation.
