R7X Zoning Code - New York City


What is an R7X Zoning District?

R7X districts are governed by Quality Housing regulations but the substantially higher floor area ratio and maximum building height produce taller, bulkier buildings than in R7A and R7B districts. The flexibility of the R7X regulations is exemplified by the nine- to 14-story apartment buildings in the R7X districts.

The FAR is R7X districts 5.0. Above a base height of 60 to 85 feet, the building must set back to a depth of 10 feet on a wide street and 15 feet on a narrow street before rising to its maximum height of 125 feet. To maintain the traditional streetscape, the street wall of a new building can be no closer to the street line, up to a depth of 15 feet, than any building within 150 feet on the same block. Any area between a buildings street wall and the street line must be landscaped.

Off-street parking is not allowed in front of a building. Parking is required for 50% of dwelling units and is waived if 15 or fewer spaces are required.
