Calendar Item 1 –– 29 Jay Street (190344 ZMK, 180345 ZRK)
An application submitted by Forman Ferry, LLC pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for a zoning map amendment to change the western portion of a block bounded by Bridge Street, Jay Street, John Street, and Plymouth Street in Brooklyn Community District 2 (CD 2) from an M1-4/R8A district to M1-6/R8X, and zoning text amendments to modify Sections 123-63 and 123-66 of the New York City Zoning Resolution (ZR) to add R8X to the list of residential districts mapped in the MX-2 Special Mixed Use District, and allow the base street wall height of developments in the rezoning area to be increased based on the street wall heights of adjacent buildings. Such actions would facilitate the development of an approximately 189,500 square-foot building with a commercial Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 10.0 and a total height of 148 feet, according to the maximum FAR permitted under the M1-6//R8X (MX-2) zoning district, without the inclusion of permissible residential development rights. The envisioned building would contain ground-floor retail and office uses.
