Authorization for Height and Setback Modifications

Within the Special Southern Hunters Point District, for any development or enlargement, the City Planning Commission may modify the regulations set forth in Section 125-30, inclusive, provided the Commission finds that such modifications:

(a)        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 access areas, streets and properties;

(b)        are consistent with the goals of the Special District to provide flexibility of architectural design and encourage more attractive building forms; and

(c)        will result in a development or enlargement that enhances the streetscape and is compatible with development in the surrounding area.

The Commission may prescribe additional conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects of the development or enlargement on the character of the surrounding area.
