Just How Important Are They for your Development Project? 

How big can I build and how much will it cost? To begin a new affordable housing project, a thorough zoning analysis and project design massing study are needed in order to determine the permissible size, height and use of buildings, as well as the potential costs of construction.  Knowing how to interpret NYC’s zoning statute, the Zoning Resolution, is essential to analyze the development potential of your real estate project in NYC.

This class covers zoning requirements and zoning maps; use regulations; yard regulations; Floor Air Ratio (F.A.R.) limitations and requirements, and bulk regulations; open space requirements; building height, setback and building envelope; building accessories; parking, sprinkler requirements and egress analysis, as well as the essentials and components of a sound feasibility study.

The class also offers a developer’s perspective on how the zoning and feasibility data informs and impacts the project including construction costs and affordability, construction schedule and design issues, etc.
