Planning background
In 1999, in accord with the recommendations of Community Board 4 in its adopted 197-A plan, a large portion of Chelsea, primarily east of Tenth Avenue, was rezoned both to preserve its scale and to facilitate residential development at appropriate locations. As part of that rezoning, the West 23rd Street corridor extending to Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea was rezoned to a mixed manufacturing-residential district. At that time, the Department of City Planning committed to re-examining West Chelsea’s zoning at a later date. The Special West Chelsea District proposal follows up on that commitment.
