It's no secret that the costs of housing in New York City has steadily increased. This has made it increasingly difficult for many New Yorkers to afford housing within the City. In response, Mayor Bill de Blasio has proposed multiple affordable housing initiatives, one of which is to mandate the construction of affordable housing units through the City's zoning code.
Understanding how these zoning regulations will impact your property is critical. Should you have a project within New York City, a ZRG Zoning Report can outline all zoning regulations that will affect your project or existing building. Will you need to provide affordable housing? Is your project legally non-conforming to New York's affordable housing zoning regulations? Find out by ordering a Standard Zoning Report from ZRG.
