Is NYC contemplating the creation of a new independent “building review agency”?

Assembly bill A01317 proposes to create a new “independent building review agency” in the City of New York to oversee the development and construction of projects within the City of New York.  The proposal of this bill begs the question:  if we need to establish a new independent building review agency then what is the New York City Department of Buildings doing?
