Overview

Overview | Existing Context and Zoning | Proposed Zoning | Public Review

  Update June 11, 2009:

At the request of Community Board 13, local civic groups and elected officials, the Department of City Planning proposes lower density and contextual zoning map changes and zoning text amendments for approximately 54 blocks located within the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn.  Under the current R6 zoning, development of tall apartment buildings without height limitation is permitted and has resulted in redevelopment of existing detached and semi-detached, one- and two-family homes with new construction ranging from 6-story apartment buildings to 13-story residential towers. The current rezoning proposal seeks to curb out-of-character development on residential side streets that are predominantly developed with lower-density homes while allowing for modest growth along wide avenues and commercial corridors and providing incentives for the creation of affordable housing.

The proposed lower density and contextual zoning districts – R4A, R5, R5D, R7A and C4-4A -- would protect the character of the neighborhood while providing modest growth opportunities and incentives for affordable housing along Ocean Parkway, Brighton Beach Avenue, Coney Island Avenue and Neptune Avenue.
