CPC Approval with Modifications

On March 10, 2008 the City Planning Commission (CPC) approved with modifications the (A) applications (C 080100(A) ZRM and C 080099(A) ZMM) for the 125th Street Corridor Rezoning (the original applications 080099 ZMM and N080100 ZRM were withdrawn). The approved actions include a Zoning Map amendment and a Zoning Text amendment.

The approved Zoning Text amendment was modified by the CPC in response to concerns raised during the public review process. The modifications include the following:

Changes to the Arts Bonus

  • Allow below-grade performing spaces to qualify for the bonus, meeting minimum size and height requirements. Zoning Text Amendment Section 97-423 (b)(4).

  • Allow rehearsal spaces to qualify for the bonus, located above grade and meeting size and transparency requirements. Zoning Text Amendment Section 97-423 (b)(3).

  • Strengthened Arts Bonus enforcement, including additional measures to ensure that the visual or performing arts space continues to be occupied over the long term by bona-fide non-profit arts users. Zoning Text Amendment Sections 97-423 (d) and (e).

Additional Changes

  • Restrict residential entrances on 125th Street within the Core Subdistrict, for new development with frontage on an avenue or side street. Zoning Text Amendment Section 97-221 (a).

  • Increase the allowed maximum height from 290’ to 330’ for new development on C4-7 zoning districts with frontage on 125th Street, Park Avenue and 124th Street. Zoning Text Amendment Section 97-442 (b)(2).
