6:15 PM – VARIANCE: An application for a Variance has been filed with the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA), pursuant to §72-21 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, as amended, to request a variance to permit the conversion of the existing building located at the Premises from residential use to community facility use (Use Group 3 School), contrary to bulk regulation. This application seeks a waiver of front and side yard regulations (§§23-45, 24-35) as well as a waiver of the loading berth requirement of the Special Ocean Parkway District (§113-22). In addition, since the existing building is non-complying, and conversion to community facility will create new non-compliances regarding the yards, a waiver of §54-31 is requested.
