                Housing New York: Zoning

               for Quality and Affordabillity

Background

 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zoning regulations that are outdated and often impede the production of new affordable housing.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      Many of the city's zoning regulations are outdated and don't reflect todays housing needs or construction practices.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

             A Five-Borough,

              Ten-Year Plan

 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:

 

  •     Mandatory Inclusionary Housing
  •     Neighborhood Planning Studies

What changes are Proposed?

  1)   Promote

       Senior Housing

 

 

 

 

 

 

  •  
  •   Modernize zoning definitions to accommodate today's housing models and recognize regulated housing types.
  •  
  •   Rationalize Floor Area Ratios to make them                    consistent, with corresponding building height limits, to facilitate more and better housing for seniors.
  •  
  •  
  • Allow flexibility for different types of senior housing and relax density restrictions that may prevent the creation of appropriately sized units.
  •  
  •  
  • Reduce administrative obstacles and eliminate redundant special permits that burden nursing home development.

 2)   Modernize Rules that

      Shape Buildings

 

 

 

 

 

 

  •  
  •  Modify building envelope regulations to  accommodate best practices and        affordable construction.
  •  
  • Allow additional flexibility needed for               higher floor area in buildings providing        affordable housing for seniors or          through the Inclusionary Housing Program.
  •  
  •  Encourage variety and better design by allowing the variation and texture that typify  older buildings in many neighborhoods.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  Provide  improved controls for lots that  are irregularly shaped or on sloped

3) Reduce Parking

     Requirements

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Eliminate parking requirements for new affordable units in
  •  subway-accessible areas and where car ownership rates are low.
  •  
  • Allow affordable senior housing
  •     developments with existing parking facilities near the subway to eliminate  their parking facilities.
  •  
  • Reduce parking  requirements for
  • affordable units and affordable senior  housing in neighborhoods further from subway stations.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  Create a process to allow where appropriate, affordable housing developments  with  existing underutilized parking facilities to be redeveloped.
  •
