- Coming to McGuinness Boulevard: R7 Zoning? [✜]
Seeing as this is the only block on the west side of McGuinness from Meeker Avenue to Clay Street that is not currently zoned R7, a better headline for Ms. Heather would have been: "Coming to the Rest of McGuinness Boulevard: R7A Zoning".
(This is the only block on the west side of McGuinness that has historically been zoned for manufacturing use. The rest of the west side of McGuinness has been zoned for residential use since 1961, and was given an R7A designation in 2008, as part of the larger Greenpoint/Williamsburg Contextual Rezoning. Because rezoning the site would have required going from M to R, it could not be included in the 2008 rezoning, which left all use categories in place.)
