I enthusiastically support the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation’s proposed University Place/Broadway Contextual Rezoning proposal with inclusionary zoning.  I strongly urge the New York City Department of City Planning to take up the proposal right away.

Current zoning in the area allows developments such as the completely inappropriate planned 308 ft. tall tower at 110 University Place, or even worse.  Such out-of-character development should not be allowed or encouraged in this area, defined by low-to-mid-rise structures.

GVSHP’s proposed rezoning would put in place appropriate height limits, streetwall requirements, and contextual envelopes; eliminate the current incentives for dorm or hotel development over residential development; and could lead to the creation of new affordable housing.

This proposal has been strongly endorsed by the local Community Board and elected officials; I urge City Planning to move ahead with it as soon as possible.
