South Street Seaport Historic District Rezoning Proposal

New York, New York

On behalf of Manhattan Community Board 1 and in close coordination with the New York City Department of City Planning, BFJ prepared the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) Application and City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) Environmental Assessment Statement for the proposed rezoning of a 10-block area in the South Street Seaport Historic District. 

This unique historic area of Manhattan, located along the East River waterfront and adjacent to the Financial District, is characterized by numerous restored four- and five-story commercial structures, representing several centuries of New York’s mercantile history. BFJ’s proposed rezoning adjusted the underlying C6-4 zoning, which dates back to 1961, to C6-2A, a contextual zone that allows a scale more compatible with the Seaport’s architectural value and overall character.
