Department of City Planning Releases Framework for Proposed East Harlem Rezoning

October 27, 2016ZONE: Land Use & Zoning Blog

The New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) has released its proposed framework for the rezoning of East Harlem. East Harlem is one of the seven neighborhoods identified by the administration for increases to residential density which would be subject to the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing requirements adopted in March 2016. DCP proposes to significantly upzone portions of Park, Second and Third Avenues, with buildings having the potential to reach up to 30 stories. We are actively following this proposal, which is expected to enter public review in April 2017, and will keep you updated.
