The City of New York
Bill de Blasio, Mayor
City Planning Commission
Marisa Lago, Chair

The "Special Little Italy District" established in this Resolution is designed to promote and protect public health, general welfare and amenity. These general goals include, among others, the following specific purposes:

(a)        to preserve and strengthen the historical and cultural character of the community;

(b)        to protect the scale of storefronts and character of the existing retail uses along Mulberry Street and other major shopping streets so that Little Italy will remain a unique regional shopping area, and thereby strengthen the economic base of the City;

(c)        to preserve the vitality of street life by reducing conflict between pedestrian and vehicular traffic;

(d)        to permit rehabilitation and new development consistent with the residential character and scale of the existing buildings in the area;

(e)        to provide amenities, such as public open space, and street trees, to improve the physical environment;

(f)        to discourage the demolition of noteworthy buildings which are significant to the character of the area; and

(g)        to promote the more desirable use of land in the area and thus to preserve the value of land and buildings, and thereby protect and strengthen the City's tax revenues, consistent with the foregoing purposes.

Definitions

For the purposes of this Chapter, matter in italics is defined in Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS) or Section 109-01 (Definitions).

Open recreation space

"Open recreation space" is that part of a zoning lot, including courts, yards and roof areas, which is unobstructed from its lowest level to the sky except for landscaping and planting requirements pursuant to Sections 109-14, 109-34 and 109-42.

In harmony with the general purposes and intent of this Resolution and the general purposes of the Special Little Italy District and in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter, certain specified regulations of the districts on which the Special Little Italy District are superimposed are made inapplicable, and special regulations are substituted therefore in this Chapter.

Except as modified by the express provisions of this Special District, the regulations of the underlying zoning district remain in effect. For the purposes of this Chapter, the provisions of Sections 23-15, 23-20 and 33-13 are made inapplicable.

The use of the public streets and sidewalks for the maintenance of sidewalk cafes, outdoor cafes or any other structures shall require the separate approval of the Board of Estimate, which may be granted upon such terms and conditions as the Board of Estimate may deem appropriate.

Within the Special District, in accordance with a comprehensive survey of its structures, buildings of special significance to the community and City as a whole, have been identified and are listed in Appendix B. Such buildings are unique either because they are socially or traditionally significant or because they are important physical influences in the life and image of the community. Such buildings shall not be demolished or have their external architectural features altered except as set forth in Section 109-52 (Special Permit Provisions). No demolition permit or alteration permit for alterations which may affect the exterior of such buildings shall be issued by the Department of Buildings for any such building except as permitted by the City Planning Commission pursuant to Section 109-52 (Special Permit Provisions) unless it is an unsafe building and demolition is required pursuant to the provisions of Title 28, Chapter 2, Article 216 of the New York City Administrative Code.

District Map

The District Map for the Special Little Italy District (Appendix A) identifies specific areas comprising the Special District in which special zoning regulations carry out the general purposes of the Special Little Italy District. These areas and the sections of this Chapter which contain regulations pertaining thereto are as follows:

Area A        PRESERVATION AREA (Section 109-10)

Area A1        MULBERRY STREET REGIONAL SPINE (Section 109-20)

Area B        HOUSTON STREET CORRIDOR (Section 109-30)

The District Map in Appendix A of this Chapter is hereby incorporated as an integral part of the Special Little Italy District.

Whenever a zoning lot is divided by the boundaries of an area as created by Section 109-03 (District Map) and as indicated on the District Map in Appendix A, the zoning lot shall be subject to the regulations of the area in which the greater portion of its frontage lies except that, in the case of any zoning lot having 15 feet or more frontage within Area A1 (Mulberry Street Regional Spine), the regulations of Area A1 shall apply to such zoning lot.

For any building or portion of a building developed or enlarged after February 3, 1977, within Area A, uses listed in the underlying district regulations are permitted except that such uses shall not include those listed in Use Groups 6D, 8C, 10, and 12D, unless authorized by the City Planning Commission pursuant to Section 109-514 (Modifications by authorization).

Within Area A, the maximum floor area ratio for a zoning lot shall not exceed the following:

The front building wall of any building shall extend along the full length of its front lot line not occupied by existing buildings to remain and shall rise without setback up to a height of six stories or 65 feet, or the height of the building, whichever is less. Above that height, the front building wall shall set back at least 10 feet. Front wall recesses are permitted provided that the aggregate length of such recesses, excluding window fenestration, at the level of any story does not exceed 25 percent of the length of the front wall where such recesses are permitted. In the event that a development occupies an entire block frontage, additional recesses are permitted provided that there are no front wall recesses within 10 feet of the intersection of two street lines. The exterior building materials of the front wall shall be predominantly of masonry.

The Commission may prescribe other appropriate conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the surrounding area.

Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Resolution, the Commission may, after notification to the affected Community Board, authorize a non-complying inner court within an existing building to be eliminated, and may modify the applicable provisions of this Chapter relating to an enlargement, provided that:

(b)        the alteration of such buildings, provided that such alteration and treatment of the facade relates harmoniously to the character and materials of the original facade and of adjoining buildings; and

(c)        the demolition of such buildings, other than unsafe buildings, provided that the Commission finds that the existing building is not suitable for rehabilitation.

For the purposes of this Section, a change of use is a change to another use listed in the same or any other conforming Use Group; however, a change in ownership or occupancy shall not, by itself, constitute a change of use. Enlargements of such buildings shall be subject to all applicable district regulations. The Commission may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards to ensure that any interim uses proposed on the site prior to any construction are in conformance with the purposes of the Special District.

An application to the City Planning Commission for the grant of a special permit respecting provisions of Sections 109-16 and 109-351 of this Chapter, shall include: a site plan showing the location and proposed use of all buildings or other structures on the site; the location of all vehicular entrances and exits and off-street parking and loading spaces; the amount and nature of traffic to be generated by such development or enlargement and an indication of the routes that will provide vehicular access to a manufacturing, commercial or community facility establishment; and such other information as may be required by the Commission.

An application to the Commission for the grant of a special permit respecting provisions of Section 109-522, shall include floor plans of all major floors; all major elevations; a site plan depicting all structures on the site, and all structures and major features within 100 feet of the site; and such other information as may be required by the Commission.
