ZQA is one of the more than 50 initiatives that make up the Mayor’s 10-year affordable housing plan. On March 22, it was approved with modifications by the City Council. This zoning text amendment updates certain zoning regulations, drafted a generation ago, that have unduly burdened or restricted affordable housing development and quality design of recent buildings.
Effective Monday, November 23rd, the Department of City Planning is operating its Central Office and Manhattan Borough Office at a new location in lower Manhattan: 120 Broadway (between Cedar and Pine), on the 31st floor. All land use applications and general customer inquiries are handled at this new address. This location is readily accessible from many subway lines, with the 4-5 and J-Z lines having an entrance directly into the building (from the Wall Street and Broad Street stops, respectively).
The new mailing address is:
