West Bushwick Rezoning

Brooklyn NY
Multiple City Blocks

This project consists of sites on multiple city blocks in the West Bushwick section of Brooklyn.  The area is located in a part of the City that is ripe for residential development as witnessed by the neighboring Rheingold Gardens development nearby.


Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC (MAP) has been commissioned to assist the property owners in rezoning from M-Manufacturing zone to R-7 Residential with a commercial overlay, where appropriate. MAP, working closely with the Brooklyn City Planning Office, has been extremely successful in proceeding though the City’s ULURP process which is dependent upon the strengths of the proposed urban design.


The rezoning process has involved planning studies, analyzing various types and density of housing that would be compatible and appropriate within the surrounding neighborhood.The intent is to attain the highest and best use that the land can yield in order to best serve the residents of Bushwick.
