The long-awaited report on the NoHo/SoHo Envisioning process is now released.

First, it is NOT a rezoning proposal/ULURP for replacing M1-5B zoning.  Second, it does provide a comprehensive framework for aligning the current on-the-ground status of NoHo/SoHo stakeholders - residential, JLWQA and commercial.

It recognizes the ongoing importance of the arts and creative endeavors in the character of these neighborhoods; it underscores the unique Landmark-Protected status of the M1-5A and M1-5B areas of both neighborhoods and the importance of its continuum.  It does address the compatibility issues of ground-floor retail over 10,000 sq, ft. and, for the most part, holds on any recommendation for overall approval.

The report does highlight pathways for JLWQA owners/tenants who are NOT registered artists to achieve legal status.  It also suggests pathways for Certified Artists to keep their status and to perhaps access tax-relief, subsidies and other preferred statuses that would help to sustain their live-work residencies.  It does suggest that not all retail is appropriate in all areas of NoHo or SoHo.

The next step will be a Public Hearing at CB#2 Manhattan which should shortly be announced.

We urge you to read the Report.

Giving Tuesday, December 3rd
