Authorization to modify certain bulk regulations

For zoning lots located entirely within 75 feet of the west side of the High Line, the City Planning Commission may authorize the modification of height and setback regulations set forth in Sections 98-40 and 98-50, inclusive, the transparency requirements set forth in Sections 98-141 and 98-54, and the underlying rear yard and minimum distance between legally required windows and walls or lot lines regulations. The Commission shall find that such modification will result in a better distribution of bulk on the zoning lot and will not adversely affect access to light and air for surrounding public areas.

The Commission may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards to enhance the character of the surrounding area.
