NYACK, N.Y. -- Village zoning codes have been adjusted along the Nyack waterfront to allow for taller buildings, with the limit raised from 45 to 52 feet paired with increased allowance for density along with concessions from developers, according to lohud.com.
These amendments to the village’s waterfront district zoning code were passed by the board Thursday, May 12, and approved by the village to incentivize development and aid concerns over future construction, according to lohud.com.
The previous regulations remain in place, but the changes allow developers to seek additional height and density allowing projects as much as 66 percent more area with a cap of 35 apartment units per acre.
More height and density would require to integrate some of the following concessions: public parkland, underground parking, public access to the waterfront, a pedestrian walkway, a water amenity such as a kayak launch, additional viewing corridors, additional setbacks, and designs that maintain the village’s downtown buildings, among other options, according to lohud.com.
