Holliswood Rezoning - Approved!
Proposed Zoning
Overview | Proposed Zoning

The Department of City Planning proposes to rezone the area from R2 to R1-2 and R3-2 districts. An existing R1-2 zoning district would be extended from the west side of 188th Street to replace the R2 zone on all or portions of 34 blocks. The proposed R1-2 district would limit new residential development to single-family detached residences, with larger minimum lot requirements than the existing R2. The minimum lot size in an R1-2 district is 5,700 square feet with a minimum lot width of 60 feet. The maximum floor area ratio (FAR) is 0.5. The front yard must be at least 20 feet deep, and each zoning lot must have at least 20 feet of total side yards, with the smaller side yard at least 8 feet in width. 

An R3-2 zoning district would replace R2 zoning to more closely match the development pattern for the garden apartment complex in the remaining two blocks of the rezoning area. The proposed R3-2 district is a general residence district, and it is the lowest density zone in which multiple family dwellings, such as the Holliswood Garden Apartments, are permitted. These proposed zoning districts will help to ensure that future development will be consistent with the established character of different parts of the neighborhood.
