Residence Districts: R8X

R8X
PDF Document View Larger Image
R8X contextual districts are governed by Quality Housing bulk regulations. R8X districts are similar to R8A districts but permit a higher building height that typically produces 14- to 16-story apartment buildings that replicate the building envelope of the older, traditional buildings in Prospect Heights and Park Slope that surround Grand Army Plaza.

The floor area ratio (FAR) in R8X districts is 6.02. Above a base height of 60 to 85 feet, the building must set back to a depth of 10 feet on a wide street and 15 feet on a narrow street before rising to a maximum building height of 150 feet. As in R8A districts, the street wall on a wide street must extend along the entire width of the zoning lot and at least 70% of the street wall must be within eight feet of the street line. Buildings must have interior amenities for residents pursuant to the Quality Housing Program.

Off-street parking is not allowed in front of a building. Parking is required for 40% of dwelling units, and it can be waived if 15 or fewer spaces are required or if the zoning lot is 10,000 square feet or less.
