Residence Districts: R9X

R9X
PDF Document View Larger Image
R9X contextual districts (and C1-8X, C2-7X and C6-3X districts with an R9X residential district equivalent), mapped only in Manhattan, are governed by Quality Housing regulations. With a floor area ratio (FAR) and height limit substantially higher than other R9 districts, R9X regulations produce the taller, bulkier 16- to 18-story apartment buildings characteristic of Chelsea and Murray Hill in Manhattan.

The FAR in R9X districts is 9.0. On a wide street, the base height of a new building must be 105 to 120 feet with a 10 foot setback before rising to a maximum height of 170 feet. On a wide street, the street wall 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. On a narrow street, the base height must be 60 to 120 feet with a 15‑foot setback before rising to a maximum height of 160 feet.

Off-street parking is not required for any development in the Manhattan Core. Elsewhere, parking is required for 40% of the dwelling units.
