Residential Districts: R2X

R2X districts allow large single-family detached houses on lots with a minimum width of 30 feet. R2X districts are mapped in Brooklyn in parts of Midwood within the Special Ocean Parkway District and part of Far Rockaway in Queens.

The higher floor area ratio (FAR) and permitted rear yard encroachment in R2X districts produce buildings with greater bulk than in any other single-family residence district. The 0.85 FAR is considerably higher than in other R2 districts and may be increased up to 1.02 by an attic allowance for the inclusion of space beneath a pitched roof. The perimeter wall may rise to 21 feet before sloping or being set back to a maximum building height of 35 feet. Although other residence districts require a 30-foot rear yard, houses in R2X districts may extend 10 feet into the rear yard. The amount of required open space on a lot is governed by yard requirements. As in other lower density districts, the R2X district requires one off-street parking space for each dwelling unit.
