- Public Hearing: ULURP No. N 150167ZRY-Stairwells Text Amendment for Non-Residential Buildings -The Department of City Planning, in collaboration with the Department of Buildings and the Fire Department, is proposing a city-wide Zoning Text Amendment to facilitate and make effective additional safety measures that are part of NYC’s 2014 Building Code. These safety measures are required for all new non-residential buildings that are greater than 420 feet in height. Buildings of this size are typically found in commercial and manufacturing zoning districts without set height limits that allow a floor area ratio (FAR) of 10 or greater. The proposed action consists of an amendment to the NYC Zoning Resolution, Section 12-10 to exempt floor space that is occupied by the additional safety measures from counting toward zoning floor area. The safety measures are intended to enhance public safety in high rise buildings by providing additional exiting capacity for building occupants during emergency situations that require full building evacuation.
