98-23 Special Floor Area and Lot Coverage Rules for Zoning Lots Over Which the High Line Passes
That portion of the zoning lot that lies directly beneath the High Line shall be exempt from lot coverage requirements below the level of the High Line bed. The remaining portion of the zoning lot shall be considered a separate zoning lot for the purposes of calculating maximum lot coverage. Easement volumes provided in accordance with the provisions of Section 98-60 (SPECIAL REGULATIONS FOR CERTAIN ZONING LOTS) and access structures constructed therein, as well as any structure required pursuant to Appendix D or E in relation to an increase in the basic maximum floor area ratio of a zoning lot pursuant to Section 98-25 (High Line Improvement Bonus), shall not be considered floor area or lot coverage.
However, at or above the level of the High Line bed, lot coverage requirements shall apply to the entire zoning lot.
Within Subarea J, any easement volumes and improvements located within such volumes dedicated or granted to the City in accordance with the provisions of Appendix F of this Chapter in connection with an increase in the basic maximum floor area ratio of a zoning lot, pursuant to Section 98-25, shall not be considered floor area.
