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 translates to the nine- to 14-story apartment buildings in the R7X districts.

The FAR in R7X districts is 5.0. Above a base height of 60 to 85 feet, the building must be 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 than any building within 150 feet on the same block, up to a depth of 15 feet. Any area between a building's street wall and the street line must be landscaped.

Parking is required for 50% of dwelling units, 30% if the lot is 10,000 square feet or less, and is waived if 15 or fewer spaces are required.
