Authorization for Bulk Modifications in the Southern Subdistrict

The City Planning Commission may authorize modification of the provisions of Sections 134-25 through 134-28, provided that the Commission finds that such modification:

(a)        will promote the goals of the Special Governors Island District; and

(b)        will result in a superior urban design relationship with surrounding ways, buildings and public open areas or provide an equivalent or better distribution of bulk on the building parcel.

Any application pursuant to this Section shall be referred to the local Community Board. The Commission shall not grant such authorization prior to forty-five (45) days following the referral.
