CB1 and City Planners Forge Deal on North Tribeca Rezoning
MANHATTAN COMMUNITY DISTRICT 01
Members of Community Board 1 (CB1) and city planners reached a tentative agreement on the rezoning of North Tribeca. The proposed rezoning will set limits on the size of new developments and allow for new residential construction without requiring a special permit from the City Planning Commission. The new laws will divide the neighborhood into four districts with unique development guidelines. The agreement will hasten the neighborhood’s transformation into a predominantly residential district, and will restrict many types of commercial activity. Once a formal proposal has been drafted and endorsed by CB1, the document will be sent to City Council for approval. This process may be completed by early 2010.
