Medical Center Zoning Map Ammendment

1220 Avenue P, Brooklyn, NY

Equity completed the CEQR Environmental Assessment, that was started by another firm, in support of a Zoning Map Amendment and associated land use actions affecting Brooklyn Block 6774, Lots 6. 7. And 9 and Block 6775, Lots 1, 5, 9, 12, 13, 74, and 75 (“the affected area”) within Brooklyn Community District 15. The Proposed Actions would include a zoning map amendment to rezone the affected area from an R5B zoning district to an R7A zoning district and would also establish the affected area as a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) Area.


The Proposed Actions would facilitate the construction an enlargement to the Levit Medical Center Midwood (the “Medical Center”). The proposed Development Site consists of four contiguous tax lots that would be developed as a single zoning lot with an area of 10,000 sq. ft. The proposed four- story enlargement would be constructed on Lot 12, which is presently unimproved, and on Lot 13, which contains a two-story building that would be demolished.  Lot 75 contains a vacant two-story building that would be demolished to provide six permitted accessory attended parking spaces for the proposed development.


The proposed development is a four-story Use Group 4 enlargement to the Medical Center with approximately 11,240 sq. ft. of additional floor area.  The proposed 11,240 sq. ft. of floor area combined with the existing 19,536 sq. ft. on Lot 9 results in 31,696 sq. ft. of Use Group 4 community facility floor area and an FAR of 3.17.


Equity conducted transportation, traffic and parking analysis as requested by New York City Department of City Planning (DCP). After the EAS was approved we continued to support our client and  attended meetings and prepared materials as needed for hearings before Community Board Land Use Subcommittee, full Community Board, Borough  President meetings, City Planning Commission, and City Council.
