  1. Hello New York YIMBY: Be the reason why you have to do, do it about its report on an 8-story mixed-use building. Be the best.

  2. More dumb NYC zoning on display. Located right on a very wide boulevard and about 1.5 blocks from a subway station, this should be at least twice as big. Instead it is 8 stories (probably with a setback so it is not even a full 8 stories) and 8 measly units.

    At least there’s no parking (probably because the parking requirement didn’t kick in due to the small # of units).

      I agree there should be no new parking spaces added within NYC, but the height may not be related to zoning. Developers can usually only build as big as they can afford. This area definitely is ripe for much more housing, if you can stand the constantly honking horns at intersections.

      • They will build as big as they are allowed by zoning. It is governed by FAR. Basically how large (in square footage) one can build given the size of the lot. The problem is that the FAR in too many instances is too low. 3- 5 is common in most of the city when it should be at least twice that, especially in places with easy access to the subways. That is smart growth, something you would think NYC is, which likes to consider itself “progressive” but in reality it isn’t.

  3. Wrong building in the picture. This is the building next door.
