Residence Districts: R4B

R4B
PDF Document View Larger Image
Primarily a contextual rowhouse district limited to low-rise, one- and two-family attached residences, R4B districts also permit detached and semi-detached buildings. However, the floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.9 and maximum building height of 24 feet typically produce a two-story, flat-roofed rowhouse. Parts of Bay Ridge in Brooklyn and Middle Village and Brookville in Queens are mapped R4B.

To maintain the characteristic rowhouse streetscape of R4B districts, the front yard of a new house must be at least five feet deep and at least as deep as one adjacent front yard but no deeper than the other, although it need not exceed a depth of 20 feet. Detached houses must have two side yards totaling at least eight feet; there is no minimum width for a side yard but there must be at least eight feet between buildings on adjacent zoning lots. Zero lot line buildings require only one eight foot side yard and semi-detached buildings require one side yard at least four feet wide. One off-street parking space is required for each dwelling unit, although parking is waived when only one space is required. Front yard parking is not allowed. Curb cuts are prohibited on zoning lot frontages that are less than 40 feet.
