G-W Contextual Rezoning


Greenpoint-Williamsburg Contextual Rezoning
Study Area

Last night City Planning and Community Board #1, in conjunction with Council Members Yassky and Reyna, held an informational session on the proposed contextual rezoning of 175 blocks in Greenpoint & Williamsburg. As in previous rezonings (Grand Street in 2008, Northside in 2005), the aim of the zoning is to limit building heights to the four to five story range (and thereby eliminate finger buildings).
There is another informational session this evening at Greenpoint Savings Bank on Manhattan Avenue. The formal public review is expected to begin in January or February.
