The Department of City Planning is proposing a rezoning for the Dutch Kills neighborhood in Queens, Community District 1. After working closely with community residents, local elected officials and civic organizations, the Department proposes a finely grained rezoning strategy using mixed-use and contextual zoning districts to support the wide range of uses found in Dutch Kills. The rezoning would remove current restrictions on residential development and provide incentives to promote affordable housing.

The rezoning area encompasses 40 blocks adjacent to Sunnyside Yards and just north of Queens Plaza and the Long Island City core and is generally bounded by 36th Avenue on the north, Northern Boulevard on the east, 41st Avenue on the south, and 23rd Street on the west. he rezoning area is highly accessible by mass transit and is served by eight subway lines including the N, R, W, V, G, E and #7 trains at Queens Plaza and the F train at Queensbridge.

The proposal, which reflects the Department’s continuing consultation with community groups and elected officials, seeks to:

  • Provide residential and mixed-use development at an appropriate scale with the surrounding context;

  • Provide incentives for affordable housing in areas proposed for higher density mixed-use development;

  • Direct new development at higher densities to wide streets;

  • Support existing light industrial businesses; and

  • Reinforce the mixed-use residential and light-industrial/commercial context.
