Introduction
At the request of Community Board 1 and local elected officials, the Department of City Planning proposes zoning map and text amendments for an approximately 175 block area in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods within Community District 1 in Brooklyn.  Separate from the 2005 Greenpoint-Williamsburg Waterfront Rezoning, this rezoning seeks to protect the existing character of residential areas east of the 2005 rezoning area.   

The rezoning area contains residential blocks from Clay Street in the north to Scholes and Maujer Streets in the south.  It is bounded on the west by the area rezoned by the 2005 Greenpoint-Williamsburg Waterfront Rezoning and on the east by the manufacturing areas in Eastern Greenpoint and Williamsburg.  This area does not include property rezoned in 2005 or any area zoned for manufacturing.

The rezoning aims to preserve neighborhood character and scale by limiting the height of new development, to create opportunities and incentives for affordable housing through inclusionary zoning, and to support local retail corridors while protecting the residential character of nearby side streets.
