107-82 Applicability of Large-Scale Residential Development Regulations to Parcels Containing Designated Open Space
Any development used predominantly for residential use on a zoning lot which includes designated open space may be treated as a large-scale residential development, and special authorizations or special permits for such development may be granted in accordance with the provisions of Article VII, Chapter 8, as modified herein, regardless of whether such development will have the area, number of buildings, or number of dwelling units specified in the definition of large-scale residential development as set forth in Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS), except as provided in Sections 107-821 to 107-823, inclusive.
Bonuses which may be granted for large-scale residential developments under the provisions of Sections 78-32 (Bonus for Good Site Plan), 78-33 (Bonus for Common Open Space) or 78-35 (Special Bonus Provisions), may not be granted for developments which have less than the minimum area, number of buildings or number of dwelling units required by the definition of a large-scale residential development.
Authorizations or special permits granted within the Special South Richmond Development District pursuant to this Resolution shall be consistent in all cases with the provisions of Section 107-224 (Qualification of designated open space as lot area for bulk computations).
Approval by the City Planning Commission of a development plan incorporating designated open space as common open space shall be conditioned upon the findings required in Section 78-52 (Common Open Space), except that the Commission may waive or modify any requirements of paragraph (g) of Section 78-52.
Notwithstanding any provision in Article VII, Chapter 8, or elsewhere in this Zoning Resolution, if the City of New York acquires title or a less than fee interest in any designated open space which serves as required open space for a development and the acquisition occurs while the development is under construction or after it is completed, it shall not affect the area's qualifications for satisfying open space requirements for zoning lots in the development.
