East Windsor Terrace/ Stable Brooklyn Rezoning - Approved!
Overview
Overview | Existing Context and Zoning | Proposed Zoning | Public Review

  Update March 11, 2009:
On March 11, 2009, the City Council adopted the East Windsor Terrace/ Stable Brooklyn Rezoning. The zoning changes are now in effect.



The Department of City Planning is proposing a zoning map amendment for approximately five blocks within the East Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn’s Community District 7.  The rezoning area is generally bounded by Ocean Parkway to the west, Coney Island Avenue to the east, Caton Place to the north and Caton Avenue to the south. The rezoning area is referred to as Stable Brooklyn by some community members because of its proximity to the Kensington horse stables, located at the corner of E 8th Street and Caton Place. 

The proposed rezoning aims to protect portions of the East Windsor Terrace neighborhood characterized by one- and two-family residences, and to ensure that future residential development reflects this existing lower density context. In addition, the rezoning would establish a new commercial overlay on the primary corridor of Caton Avenue to provide opportunities for local retail in the area. 

The study was initiated in response to local concerns that recent development interest in the area was resulting in buildings inconsistent with the scale and character of the existing built context. The proposed zoning recommendations are the result of extensive consultation with the local City Councilmember, local community groups, including the Stable Brooklyn Community Group and Community Board 7.
