Research on the Trump Shopping Center zoning in Coney

I read this in a reader comment in the Bay News a couple of weeks ago -

This developer has something called “as of right,” which means he can come in without prior notice and close everything down and start building. Because of this, most of the community does not even know this is happening.

So I did some research on the city zoning site Zola

maps.nyc.gov/doitt/nycitymap/template?applicationName=ZOLA

For the Trump Shopping Center I found R6 zoning with a C1-2 commercial overlay.

520 NEPTUNE AVENUE
BROOKLYN 11224

 
Zoning Information:
Borough:BrooklynBlock:7273Lot:1

Zoning:
R6

Commercial Overlay: C1-2


Special Purpose District:
Special Ocean Parkway District


Zoning Map:
28d

Historical Zoning Maps:
28d

R6 is the exact same zoning the Bath Beach property has that is already slated for a condo tower. So it is quite possible the developer in Coney Island already has the zoning for the residential tower with retail attached. No rezoning may be necessary. It could be as of right. We shall see. I could be wrong, but from the zoning info I see this may be a fairly fast build with no rezoning process. No real detailed info from the development has come out yet, so we really don't know for sure.
