Housing New York: Zoning
for Quality and Affordabillity
As detailed in Housing New York, the Mayor's five borough, ten year plan for housing affordability, housing in New York is becoming increasingly unaffordable. The plan lays out set of strategies to create
or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing. Among the issues it identifies the need to modernize
zoning regulations that are outdated and often impede the production of new affordable housing.
Since the release of Housing New York, the Department of City Planning, working with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, nonprofit housing groups, architects, developers and other
practitioners, has identified a set of problems that constrain new housing, and strategies to address them.
The proposed amendments have three primary goals:
1. Promote senior housing
to address the affordable housing needs of an aging population.
2. Modernize rules that shape buildings
to encourage high-quality, mixed-income buildings and accomodate best practices in housing design.
3. Reduce unnecessary parking requirements for affordable housing
to avoid excessive costs that hamper the creation of affordable and senior housing.
Why are these changes needed ?
Many of the city's zoning regulations are outdated and don't reflect todays housing needs or construction practices. They unintentionally force tradeoffs between housing creation and the quality of retail and community facility spaces, or between the quality of housing and the ability to provide affordable housing. They encourage buildings that are flat or dull, and fail to enliven the pedestrian
environment. They can also force buildings to incorporate costly and unnecessary features such as impractical layouts for corridors
and apartments, or more parking than is needed. By removing obsolete provisions and modernizing others, zoning can foster diverse and livable neighborhoods with the development of new high-quality, mixed-income housing.
Housing New York
Housing New York outlines the Mayor's plan to create or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing over the next ten years. In addition to zoning conflicts , the DCP will
address several other key initiatives in the plan, including:
