Residential Districts: R7D

R7D districts promote new contextual development along transit corridors. Portions of Fulton Street and the Special Coney Island District in Brooklyn are mapped as R7D districts. Blocks that are mapped C4-5D have an R7D residential district equivalent.

The floor area ratio (FAR) of 4.2 ­allows greater residential density than R7A districts and less than R7X districts. In a C4‑5D district or when a commercial overlay is mapped in an R7D district, the ground floor of a building must be reserved for retail uses, such as shops and services, to maintain the vitality of the street.

Quality Housing bulk regulations, mandatory in R7D districts, produce ten-story buildings set at or near the street line. The base height of a new building must be 60 to 85 feet before setback, rising to a maximum building height of 100 feet. In order to maintain the continuity of the street wall, a new building can be no closer to the street line than any other building within 150 feet on the same block but need not be farther than 15 feet. In commercial overlay districts or in a C4‑5D district, the street wall of a building on a wide street must extend along the entire width of the zoning lot at the street line. Interior amenities for building residents pursuant to the Quality Housing Program are required.

Off-street parking is required for 50 percent of dwelling units.
