Zoning Around Transit Stations in NYC Getting Downzoned, Study Shows
Kazis reports that while the city has increased density around many transit stations, they've also downzoned areas that are transit-accessible, preventing new development:
"Indeed, under one representative five-year period of Bloomberg and Burden's city planning, three-quarters of the lots rezoned for greater density were located within a half-mile of rail transit, but so were two-thirds of the lots where development was further restricted, according to research by NYU's Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy."
Kazis uses a rezoning in the Bronx to illustrate the story.
