Rezoning

In 2016, the NYC Department of City Planning (DCP) initiated a Gowanus Neighborhood Planning Study to determine strategies for the future development of the land around the Gowanus Canal. This study is building on community priorities identified in the Bridging Gowanus process, including supporting a mix of uses, affordable housing, investment in the public realm, sustainability, resiliency, arts, and culture.

On June 4, 2018, DCP released the framework for land use and planning in the neighborhood, which includes recommendations for open space, infrastructure, transportation, and increased density that prioritizes a mix of uses.
