Proposed Zoning Map Changes
Overview | Existing Zoning | Proposed Text Amendment | Proposed Zoning Map Changes


R5, R6 and R6/C1-3 to R4A
Example of proposed R4A: N. Oak Drive
Example of proposed R4A: N. Oak Drive
All or portions of seven blocks generally south of Bartholdi Street between Bronxwood and Holland avenues are proposed to be rezoned to R4A. Whereas the existing zoning districts permit all types of housing, the proposed R4A permits only one-and two-family detached residences with a maximum FAR of 0.9. The majority of residences in this area are one-and two-family detached homes.

The one-block portion of the C1-3 commercial overlay along the south side of South Oak Drive would be removed. This block is developed with large detached single- and two-family homes and it has no commercial uses or vacant commercial space. The proposal to rezone to R4A is in keeping with the use and built form of this block.


R5 to R4

Example of proposed R4: Hone Avenue between Burke Avenue and Duncan Avenue
All or portions of 15 blocks south and east of Gun Hill Road and the high school campus would be rezoned to R4. These blocks contain detached, semi-detached and attached housing, most of which is developed at less than the maximum FAR of 0.9 permitted in the proposed R4 district. R4 permits the same variety of housing types as the R5 district and minimum lot size, lot width and yard requirements remain unchanged.



R7-1 and R6 to R5A

Example of proposed R5A: Bronx Blvd. and Rosewood Example of proposed R5A: Bronx Blvd. and Rosewood
Portions of three blocks north of Gun Hill Road and two full blocks to the south would be rezoned from R7-1 and R6 to the proposed new R5A district.

A majority of the residences in this area are one and two family detached homes, most of which have FARs of 1.1 or below.

R7-1 and R6 to R5

Example of proposed R5: Olinville Avenue and Rosewood Avenue
Example of proposed R5: Olinville Avenue and Rosewood Avenue
One block bounded by Rosewood, Barker, and Burke avenues and Bronx Boulevard, and all or portions of five blocks generally bounded by Rosewood, Barker, Adee and Olinville avenues are proposed to be rezoned to R5. This area is developed with a variety of housing types ranging from one- and two-family homes to small apartment buildings. Over 80% of the buildings are developed with FARs at or below the 1.25 maximum permitted in an R5 zone.

 


R7-1 to R6

Example of proposed R6: Bronx Blvd. and 213th Street
Example of proposed R6: Bronx Blvd. and 213th Street
Portions of three blocks along the east side of Bronx Boulevard from East 211th to East 219th streets would be rezoned from R7-1 to R6. This area presently contains a variety of housing ranging from two- to six-story apartment buildings. Three-quarters of buildings have a floor area ratio less than the 2.43 maximum permitted in an R6 zone.
