Grand Street Rezoning - Approved!

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

  Update March 26, 2008:
On March 26, 2008, the City Council adopted the Grand Street zoning changes with modifications (PDF Document View map of zoning modifications). Zoning changes are now in effect.


Typical development along Grand Street

The Department of City Planning proposes a zoning map amendment for an approximately 13-block area in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, within Community District 1.  The rezoning area is generally bounded by Berry Street, North Third Street, Fillmore Place, Hope Street, Marcy Avenue, and South First Street.

The rezoning aims to preserve neighborhood character and scale by establishing contextual zoning districts that have height limits and street wall lineup provisions.  It would reflect Grand Street's presence as a local retail corridor while protecting the residential character of lots adjacent to retail corridors.
