Chinatown group blasts City’s East Side plans

Steve Herrick of the Cooper Square Committee, a community-based group that develops and operates affordable housing, called the plan “preferable to the current zoning.

It’s a step in the right direction, but still not enough.” Herrick asked the city to make 30 percent of units in the inclusionary zoning-eligible developments affordable, to lower height limits on I.Z. areas from 125 feet to 100 feet and to lower the increased floor area ratio for those zones.
