New, 11 comments

The Department of City Planning has officially launched the public review process for a rezoning of 55 blocks of Crown Heights, requested by Community Board 8 as a way to increase affordable housing, preserve neighborhood character, and improve the area's commercial offerings. The proposed rezoning would limit building heights and incentivize affordable housing along parts of Franklin and Bedford avenues. So where precisely would this rezoning take place? The part of Crown Heights bounded by Pacific, Dean, and Bergen streets to the north, Nostrand to the east, Eastern Parkway to the south, and Washington and Grand avenues to the west.
