Manhattan Parking Reforms Loom

After a flawed parking study on Manhattan's core last fall, the NYC Department of City Planning have released a revised version that calls for an end to parking minimums, especially those linked to affordable housing.

"The details of all these changes are still forthcoming. That means there is still an opportunity for the city's formidable real estate lobby to weaken these proposals or overturn the city's strict parking controls. The Real Estate Board of New York is pushing for the maximums to be raised, allowing developers to build more parking in Manhattan. There isn't any mention of that in DCP's proposal so far, however."
