At the request of Community Board 2, local civic groups and elected officials, the Department of City Planning proposes contextual zoning map changes and a zoning text amendment for 99 blocks located within the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill neighborhoods including the Wallabout area of Brooklyn. Under the current R6 zoning, construction of tall apartment buildings without a height limitation is permitted and has resulted in buildings that are inconsistent with the typical brownstone character of the neighborhood and historic districts. As market demand for housing within Fort Greene and Clinton Hill has increased, a number of out-of-scale, 11- to 13-story tower developments are proposed or have been constructed that are inconsistent with the low-rise, row house neighborhood character.

The proposed contextual zoning districts -- R5B, R6B, R6A, R7A -- would protect and preserve the predominantly brownstone character of the neighborhood's residential core and provide opportunities for apartment house construction and incentives for affordable housing on Myrtle Avenue, Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue within the rezoning area.



Typical Residential Character

Residential Core: Carlton Avenue between Willoughby and DeKalb Avenues
