382 Hendrix St is located in NYC zone R7A with commercial overlay of C2-4. It means primarily residential zoning which quality housing is a mandatory option and allow general commercial spaces. The FAR for residential is 4.0 and for commercial is 2.0, means that floor area can be built up to 4 times of lot area for residential and 2 times for commercial. However, when it is combined, the maximum cannot be more than largest number, which is 4.0. Thus total floor area can be built on this site is 4.0, 7,050 SF. Commercial portion cannot go beyond its FAR, 2.0 and cannot be located above the ceiling of the first floor.
A building can cover up to 80% of the lot. Thus, the maximum floor area of each floor is 1,410 SF and minimum 40’ of building height required and maximum 80. The proposed study shows 5-story building with 1,410 SF on each floor. Commercial on first floor and residential on others. Commercial can be cover 100% of the lot on first floor, but in that case, floor area on 5th floor shall be limited.
