- Eyes on the potential rezoning: The proposal released earlier this year covers 80 blocks by the Gowanus Canal and would allow new mixed-use development projects along the water. Developers would be required to raise the shoreline and build flood-proof buildings. This assemblage is currently zoned M1-2.
- Dig Deeper: The Department of City Planning has stated that the plan would lead to thousands of new affordable housing units and provide developers with incentives to include manufacturing and arts spaces in their projects.
