Residential Districts: R6B


R6B districts are often traditional row- house districts, which preserve the scale and harmonious streetscape of neighborhoods of four-story attached buildings developed during the 19th century. Many of these houses are set back from the street with stoops and small front yards that are typical of Brooklyn’s “brownstone” neighborhoods, such as Park Slope, Boerum Hill and Bedford Stuyvesant.

The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 2.0 and the mandatory Quality Housing regulations also accommodate apartment buildings at a similar four- to five-story scale. The base height of a new building before setback must be between 30 and 40 feet; the maximum height is 50 feet. Curb cuts are prohibited on zoning lot frontages less than 40 feet. The street wall of a new building, on any lot up to 50 feet wide, must be as deep as one adjacent street wall but no deeper than the other. Buildings must have interior amenities for the residents pursuant to the Quality Housing Program. Off-street parking is required for 50% of dwelling units. It is not allowed in front of a building.
