WHAT IS ZONING?

Zoning  is a set of rules that determine the legal use of land as well as the shape and size of buildings to be built on the property. The Zoning Resolution Of New York City are the guidelines for what we can build in NYC. Governing all property developments. The NYC Department Of City Planning governs Zoning, and the NYC Department Of Buildings enforces and approves zoning in NYC. All new buildings, new houses, building enlargements / additions, and change of use require zoning analysis to be submitted to the Department Of Buildings for approval. The zoning analysis and documents are reviewed and approved or disapproved by the NYC DOB plan examiners as part of the work applications.

ZONING RESOLUTION DETERMINATION PREDETERMINATION

If you intend to do a development in NYC and you expect a specific challenge in zoning you can file for a predetermination with DOB. As architects we can file for a predetermination before filing the job with the DOB. The commissioner’s office will interpret and issue a determination on zoning implementation.
