Zoning Map Changes
The proposed action would map within the rezoning area contextual and low-density districts similar to surrounding districts.  The existing R3-2 district is proposed to be replaced by an R3X district. The underlying R3X regulations would be modified by a proposed zoning text amendment to allow non-profit housing for the elderly in that area.  Additionally, a portion of the existing R3X district is proposed to be replaced by an R1-2 district to better reflect the development being constructed there.

R3-2 to R3X
While there are no current plans for development of the 149.2-acre southern portion of the Mt. Loretto property, the proposed rezoning from R3-2 to R3X would ensure that any future development will be consistent with the character and scale of the surrounding neighborhood.

The R3X district within the Special South Richmond Development District permits only one- and two-family detached houses on minimum 40-foot-wide lots. However, the proposed text amendment described below would allow for development of non-profit senior housing on this property.

R3X to R1-2
The former Camp St. Edwards site would be rezoned from R3X to R1-2 which, in the SSRDD, would permit one-family detached houses with a maximum FAR of 0.5 on lots at least 40 feet wide and 5,700 square feet in area. The R1-2 district requires minimum 20-foot-deep front yards and, in the Staten Island LDGMA, a minimum of two on-site parking spaces.  The proposed R1-2 would reflect the single-family detached residence development that is nearing completion on this site.


Proposed Text Amendments
The proposed amendments to the Special South Richmond Development District (SSRDD) would create two new Special Areas, Area LL and Area SH, in which the existing SSRDD regulations would be modified. PDF Document View the proposed text amendment.

Special Area LL
The proposed Special Area LL  would be established over a 628-acre section of Prince’s Bay within the SSRDD.  The area is generally bounded by Richmond Parkway, Minturn Avenue and Percival Place, Hylan Boulevard, Richard Avenue, Amboy Road and Page Avenue. Reflecting the existing large lot, low density character of this area, minimum lot area would increase from 3,800 to 5,700 square feet with a minimum width of 50 feet.

Special Area SH
The proposed Special Area SH within the SSRDD would be established on a 172-acre section of primarily vacant Mt. Loretto property. The area is generally bounded by the prolongation of Vail Avenue, Richard Avenue, Hylan Boulevard and Sharrott Avenue. As part of this proposal, the entire area would be zoned R3X, a district that does not permit multiple family housing.

Recognizing that non-profit housing for the elderly is generally constructed in multiple dwellings, the proposed Special Area SH would permit up to 250 dwelling units of such housing by a Chair’s certification that a detailed site plan has been submitted demonstrating compliance with the provisions of the SSRDD. 

When the threshold of 250 units in Special Area SH is reached, additional units of non-profit housing for the elderly could be developed pursuant to a City Planning Commission authorization. To grant the authorization, the Commission would have to make findings relating to the development’s site plan and design, and its impact on traffic in the surrounding area.
