Follow-up Text Amendment

  Update November 19, 2008:
On November 19, 2008 the City Council adopted the 125th Street Follow-Up Text Amendment. The zoning text changes are now in effect.


The follow-up text amendment (N 090031 ZRM) reduces the allowed maximum building height and allowed density in the C4-7 district within the Core Subdistrict of the Special 125th Street District and responds to concerns expressed by the community and elected officials throughout the 125th Street Rezoning public review process regarding the allowed maximum height of buildings in this portion of the corridor.

The zoning text amendment amends Sections 97-411, 97-422 and 97-442, relating to  height and bulk regulations within the C4-7 zoned portion of the Core Subdistrict of the Special 125th Street District.

The zoning regulations for the C4-7 zoning district within the Core Subdistrict, as adopted by the City Council on April 30th, 2008, allow a maximum building height of 290 feet. The existing C4-7 zoning district density regulations allow a base commercial FAR of 10, bonusable to a maximum FAR of 12 through the use of the arts bonus; a base residential FAR of 9, bonusable to a maximum FAR of 12 through the use of the arts bonus or the Inclusionary Housing program; and a maximum FAR of 10 for community facility use.

The follow-up changes to the regulations for the C4-7 zoning district within the Core Subdistrict  reduce the maximum  building height to 195 feet. These latest changes also amend the density regulations for all uses favoring commercial over residential development by establishing a base commercial FAR of 7.2, bonusable  to a maximum FAR of 8.65 through the use of the arts bonus; a base residential FAR of 5.4, bonusable  to a maximum FAR of 7.2 through the use of the arts bonus or the Inclusionary Housing program; and a maximum FAR of 7.2 for community facility use.

The diagrams below compare the maximum allowed building height under the originally approved zoning (290 feet) and under this follow-up amendment (195 feet). Similarly, the tables below compare the allowed density for commercial, residential and community facility uses.
