GVSHP’s recommendations to improve the East Village rezoning plan

In November 2008, the City Council enacted into law a sweeping rezoning of the East Village. The new zoning will for the first time establish height limits for new development throughout the affected area, reduce the allowable bulk of new development in most of the area, cap air rights transfers, eliminate the current zoning bonus for dorms and hotels, and create incentives for the creation and retention of affordable housing.

One troubling shortcoming of the rezoning, however, was the exclusion of the 3rd and 4th Avenue corridors and the Bowery. GVSHP and others pushed very hard to get this area included, but the City stubbornly refused. GVSHP is working with community groups, the community board, and local elected officials, especially Councilmember Rosie Mendez and Borough President Scott Stringer, to advance a community-initiated rezoning plan for these blocks, which also desperately need it.
