Zoning for Quality and Affordability proposal

Date posted: March 25, 2015

As part of Housing New York, the Mayor’s ten-year, five-borough plan for housing affordability, the Department of City Planning is proposing the Zoning for Quality and Affordability initiative. This set of amendments to the Zoning Resolution is intended to:

  • Remove barriers that constrain housing production and raise costs,
  • Encourage better quality buildings that contribute to the fabric of neighborhoods,
  • Promote senior housing to address the affordable housing needs of an aging population, and
  • Reduce unnecessary parking requirements for affordable housing

The latest information about the Zoning for Quality and Affordability proposal, including illustrated presentation materials, are available on DCP’s website, at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/zoning-qa/zoning-for-affordability-1.shtml
