    My first post on this site!

    Working on an Alt 1 C of O Change.

    39x100 existing structure - C of O reads:

    Ground Floor Bank/commercial Use Group 6
    2nd Floor - Vacant
    3rd Floor- Vacant

    The owner wants to build out the upper two floors as apartments.
    This is an entire lot, on a wide street that doesn't allow curb cuts. There is no option to adhere to the parking requirement here. Any way to get a waiver around this?

    If not this setup - can we do GF Community Facility second and third commercial with a parking waiver??

    Thanks

    Sounds like a local zoning requirement. Probably no on here knows your local zoning laws. They a different everywhere.

    Wonder on an existing building,,,

    Why there is not close to required parking already

    Plus you seem to not add much more.

    This is NYC Zoning - And yes we are not adding any square footage and no enlargement.

    This would be a ZONING issue not building code.

    We do have 1 or 2 New Yorkers on here so maybe you will get an answer.
