  • An R4-1 district is proposed for portions of seven blocks north of Emmons Avenue  between East 27th Street and the mid-block east of Ford Street. These blocks are now zoned R5  and portions of two are within the SSBD. The area is characterized by one and two-family detached and semi-detached homes and the R4-1 district would limit development to detached and semi-detached one-and two-family homes on lots that have a minimum width of 25 feet for detached homes and a minimum width of 18 feet for semi-detached homes. The maximum FAR would be reduced from 1.25 (2.0 in Area F of the SSBD)  to 0.9 (0.75 plus 0.15 attic allowance).  R4-1 has a maximum perimeter wall height of 21 feet and a maximum building height of 35 feet. R4-1 districts require one parking space for each unit.

  • An R4B district would replace R5 zoning on portions of three blocks north of Emmons Avenue between East 28th Street and Haring Street which is characterized by one-and two-family row houses. Two of the three blockfronts are within the SSBD. The zoning change would limit development to one-and two-family homes, detached, semi-detached or attached on lots that have a minimum width of 25 feet for detached homes and a minimum width of 18 feet for semi-detached and attached homes. The maximum FAR will be reduced from 1.25 (2.0 in Area F of the SSBD) to 0.9.  R4B has a maximum building height of 24 feet and requires one parking space for each unit. In the proposed R4B district, parking is not permitted in front of the building.

  • The proposal reduces the depths of the existing C2-2 overlays from 150 feet to 75 feet and 100 feet to reflect existing commercial development and prevent the intrusion of commercial uses on residential side streets.  

  • The proposal also includes an amendment to Appendix A of the SSBD text to reflect a change the boundaries of the special district. Portions of eight blocks  would be removed from the special district to assure that new development would be governed by the regulations of the underlying residential districts, with their lower FARs and height limits, rather than those of the SSBD.
