Petition to Close Zoning Loophole Allowing for Excessive Mechanical Voids in Residential Construction in Commercial Districts

Petition to Close Zoning Loophole Allowing for Excessive Mechanical Voids in Residential Construction in Commercial Districts

We’ve passed a limit of 20 feet on empty mechanical voids in residential districts and are now fighting to extend those same protections to “Billionaires Row” in the Central Business District, Hudson Yards, and the Finance District. The proposal from the city is for a 35-foot limit on “voids” in these Commercial Districts. Sign the petition to limit what remains of the voids loophole for residential buildings in commercial districts.

Learn more about the Proposal from the Department of City Planning.
