Dutch Kills is a lively mixed-use residential, commercial and light industrial community located directly north of the Queensboro Bridge and the Special Long Island City Mixed-Use District. Approximately half of all zoning lots in the rezoning area are residential and mixed-use, and about one-third are in light industrial, wholesale, warehouse or parking use.

The current zoning in the Dutch Kills, M1-1 and M1-3D, severely restricts development of new residential uses. The M1-1 permits no new residential uses.


M1-3D
M1-3D zoning is located on thirty-six blocks generally bounded by 41st Avenue, Northern Blvd., 23rd Street and 37th Avenue. M1-3D is primarily a light manufacturing district that allows light manufacturing and commercial uses at a maximum FAR of 5.0 and limited community facilities at a maximum FAR of 6.5. The maximum height for light manufacturing and commercial buildings is regulated by the sky exposure plane.

Under the existing M1-3D zoning, new residential uses are only permitted by City Planning Commission authorization with a maximum FAR of 1.65 and residential enlargements are limited to 500 square feet per dwelling unit, with no change in the number of dwelling units permitted on a zoning lot.  Maximum residential building height is 32 feet. There has been only one authorization granted by the City Planning Commission in Dutch Kills since the establishment of the M1-3D district in 1989 and there are four pending applications.

M1-1 zoning is located on four blocks generally bounded by 36th Avenue, 33rd Street, 37th Avenue and 29th Street. New residential uses are prohibited and only light manufacturing and commercial uses are allowed at a maximum FAR of 1.0. Limited community facilities are allowed at a maximum FAR of 2.4.  The maximum height is regulated by the sky exposure plane and parking requirements vary by use.
