Existing Zoning
The bulk of the West Chelsea area is currently zoned for light manufacturing and commercial uses, with a zoning designation of M1-5 and a maximum allowable floor area ratio (FAR) of 5.0. The 23rd Street corridor was rezoned in 1999 from M1-5 to M1-5/R9A and M1-5/R8A to allow mixed manufacturing and residential uses. Medium-performance M2-3 manufacturing districts are located to the west across Eleventh Avenue. Residential zoning districts are located across Tenth Avenue to the east within the Chelsea Historic District, Chelsea/Elliot Houses, Fulton Houses, and other residential areas.
