Please take a moment to sign our ‘one-click letter’ in support of State Bill A5026A/S3820A, sponsored by Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal. The bill will close existing loopholes in the multiple dwelling law that now don’t count mechanical and void spaces towards a developer’s FAR (Floor Area Ratio) allowance. Once you click on ’sign, your letter goes to all  members of the New York State Senate and Assembly.

Dear New York State Legislator,

Please support bill A5026A/S3820A, sponsored by Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal. This bill closes existing loopholes in the multiple dwelling law for New York City. The current loopholes don’t count mechanical and void spaces towards a developer’s FAR (Floor Area Ratio), thereby allowing developers to jack up buildings to immense heights, often on stilts, and in some cases over 150 feet taller than the zoning code intended.

These no-count spaces only serve to elevate the height of buildings and to generate additional profits for developers and investors who are gaming the system to capture additional height. The stilt buildings and supertalls that result violate the spirit of the law and intent of the zoning regulations.

Please support and vote for A5026A/S3820A, which provide the right fix that has long been needed.

Sincerely,
your name
