Affordable independent residences for seniors

Within the Transit Zone, no accessory off-street parking spaces shall be required for dwelling units in an affordable independent residence for seniors developed after March 22, 2016. Existing required or permitted accessory off-street parking spaces for dwelling units in affordable independent residences for seniors in receipt of a certificate of occupancy prior to March 22, 2016, shall continue to be subject to the applicable zoning district regulations in effect prior to March 22, 2016, except that such parking spaces may be removed provided that any new dwelling units created on the portion of the zoning lot previously occupied by such parking spaces shall be income-restricted housing units. Such requirement shall be reflected in a notice of restrictions recorded against all tax lots comprising such zoning lot, and a copy of such notice shall be provided to the Department of Buildings.

Outside the Transit Zone, accessory off-street parking spaces shall be provided for at least 10 percent of the total number of dwelling units in an affordable independent residence for seniors developed after March 22, 2016. However, within lower density growth management areas in Community District 10 in the Borough of the Bronx, accessory off-street parking spaces shall be provided for at least 16 percent of the total number of dwelling units in R6 Districts and for at least 12.5 percent of the total number of dwelling units in R7-1 Districts. Existing required or permitted accessory off-street parking spaces for dwelling units in affordable independent residences for seniors in receipt of a certificate of occupancy prior to March 22, 2016, shall continue to be subject to the applicable zoning district regulations in effect prior to March 22, 2016. However, the Board of Standards and Appeals may reduce such requirements in accordance with the provisions of Section 73-434 (Reduction of existing parking spaces for affordable independent residences for seniors).
