It's now easier to research zoning regulations, find your property's zoning, and discover neighborhood proposals and City Planning initiatives. Built entirely on open data, the new ZoLa is 100% open source, works on any device, and allows you to save and share your research.

Greater East Midtown


    The rezoning enables the development of new, sustainable, state-of-the-art office buildings, solidifying East Midtown as a premier business district. Buildings will be able to achieve higher densities provided that the developments support enhancements to the area’s transit network and pedestrian realm, and support the preservation of some of Midtown’s most iconic landmarks.

New Video - Special Floodplain Zoning Regulations


    City Planning created a short video as part of an extensive public outreach campaign, with the goal of generating input on how to modify zoning rules to remove regulatory barriers to resiliency investments in the floodplain. Watch the video and learn how to get involved in making your neighborhood more resilient.

Urban Design Principles for Planning New York City

    The Department of City Planning’s Urban Design Principles are intended to be an internal resource for department staff as well as the general public. These will serve those working to improve the livability of New York City’s neighborhoods and those who share our commitment to expand, protect and promote our public realm. The principles provide a foundation for understanding the land use planning and development process.
