i'm sure you'll get some great feedback from Martin or AJ. But here's my .02.
That is pretty good brewing water, and pretty typical City water. You will want to boost your Calcium levels for sure with either Gypsum or Calcium Chloride. (Gypsum will also add Sulfides for accentuating hops, Cal. Chloride will add Chloride to add robustness to malty beers). Check out Yooper's sticky, that will really be helpful for you.
Also, your alkalinity is a bit high. You will want to us Bru'nWater to calculate the amount of acid to use in your mash. You could add a bit of RO/DI water to cut that down some, but it's not terrible.
