PDF Document View Larger Image
The Quality Housing contextual regulations, mandatory in R10A districts, typically produce the substantial apartment buildings set on the avenues and wide streets of Manhattan, such as West End Avenue and Broadway on the Upper West Side. Commercial districts which are R10A residential district equivalent, such as C4-6A districts on Broadway and C2-8A districts on some blocks of East 96th Street, are lined with large apartment houses with street level stores. Towers are not permitted in R10A districts.

Typical new buildings are 22-story apartment buildings with high lot coverage and street walls set at or near the street line. The floor area ratio (FAR) is 10.0. Residential and mixed buildings can receive a residential floor area bonus for the creation or preservation of affordable housing, on-site or off-site, pursuant to the Inclusionary Housing Program. The maximum base height before setback, which is 150 feet within 100 feet of a wide street and 125 feet on a narrow street, is designed to match the height of many older apartment buildings. Above the base height, the required minimum setback is 10 feet on a wide street and 15 feet on a narrow street. The maximum height of a building is 210 feet within 100 feet of a wide street and 185 feet beyond 100 feet of a wide street.

Off-street parking is not required in the Manhattan Core Elsewhere, it is required for 40% of the dwelling units.
