Residence Districts: R7B


In contextual R7B districts, the mandatory Quality Housing regulations are similar to those of R6B districts but the higher floor area ratio (FAR) and height limit generally produce six- to seven-story apartment buildings rather than the rowhouses typical of R6B districts. There are R7B districts in Brooklyn and throughout Queens, including portions of Rego Park. Parts of the East Village in Manhattan are also mapped R7B.

The FAR is 3.0; the base height of a new building before setback must be between 40 and 60 feet before rising to a maximum building height of 75 feet. To maintain the traditional streetscape, curb cuts are prohibited on zoning lot frontages less than 40 feet. The front wall of a new building, on any lot up to 50 feet wide, must be as deep as one adjacent front wall but no deeper than the other. On lots 50 feet wide or more, the front wall must be no closer to the street line than the front wall of an adjacent building. Front walls need not be set back beyond 15 feet. Buildings must have interior amenities for residents pursuant to the Quality Housing Program.
