Residential Districts: R5D

R5D contextual districts, designed to encourage residential growth along major corridors in auto-dependent areas of the city, are mapped in portions of the Jamaica and Rockaway Park neighborhoods in Queens and on Williamsbridge Road in the northeast area of the Bronx.

R5D districts serve as a transition between lower-density districts and moderate-density districts by incorporating the lot area, lot width and building envelope of R5B districts with certain aspects of the Quality Housing Program available in R6 through R9 districts and R10 contextual districts) relating to interior building amenities, planting and the location of accessory parking. Lot coverage requirements are the same as for R6 contextual districts.

Characterized by moderate-density, multi- family housing, R5D districts have a maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 2.0, a height limitation of 40 feet and a significant amount of required off-street parking, reflecting the lack of easy access to mass transit and the reliance on automobiles.

The minimum lot width for single- and two-family detached houses is 25 feet; side yards are not required for lots less than 30 feet wide. Zero lot line buildings are permitted. As in R4B and R5B districts, the front yard 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.

Off-street parking, which is not permitted in front of the building, is required for 66% of all dwelling units. Curb cuts are not permitted on a wide street if the zoning lot also fronts on a narrow street.
