As a condition to receiving a building permit, such absence of a qualifying building on the zoning lot must be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Department of Buildings.
  2. Residential use by certification

    Residential use shall be permitted on a zoning lot that, on March 20, 2013, was occupied by one or more qualifying buildings, only upon certification by the Chairperson of the City Planning Commission that the zoning lot, as it existed on March 20, 2013, will contain at least the amount of commercial or manufacturing floor area that existed within such qualifying buildings on the zoning lot on March 20, 2013, subject to the following:
    1. commercial or manufacturing floor area that is preserved within existing non-qualifying buildings on the zoning lot through restrictive declaration may count towards meeting the requirements of this certification; and

However, commercial or manufacturing floor area converted to residential vertical circulation space and lobby space need not be replaced as commercial or manufacturing floor area.

A restrictive declaration acceptable to the Department of City Planning shall be executed and recorded, binding the owners, successors and assigns to maintain the amount of commercial or manufacturing floor area that existed within such qualifying buildings on March 20, 2013, on the zoning lot. Such restrictive declaration shall be recorded in the Office of the City Register. A copy of such declaration shall be provided to the Department of Buildings upon application for any building permit related to a change of use from commercial or manufacturing to residential, or for any development containing residences.
