Right now most of Washington Heights and Inwood is zoned R7-2, which has a maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 3.44 (meaning the building square-footage can be up to 3.44 times the lot area) and no maximum building height requirements. (For an explanation of this zoning designation, refer to www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/fdb/fdb3a.shtml) The community board should explore a contextual rezoning to a zoning designation that has a maximum street wall height of four to six stories, such as R7A.
