Zoning to Scale: Considering Neighborhood Character
This event is part of the series Mastering the Metropolis: New York and Zoning, 1916-2016
Zoning decisions affect us all. Depending on the type of zoning ordinance, a "supertall" tower can be built in a neighborhood that typically features uniform, low buildings, clashing with its surroundings. Through contextual zoning, the city can regulate the height, bulk, setback, and street frontage of new buildings as measures to preserve the fabric of especially historic neighborhoods and prevent any disruptive new developments. Join us to discuss the impact of contextual zoning and its effectiveness in preserving New York City’s most beloved neighborhoods.
