New Rezoning Plan For The Garment District?
The plan, which could ease regulations on manufacturers, could be filed as soon as April, according to Crain’s New York Business.
When that plan was announced, there was no mention of a rezoning plan for Manhattan’s Garment District.
A similar plan tried to rezone the area in 2009, but opposition from commercial landlords stopped that plan from coming to fruition.
Sources tell Crain’s the aim is for a proposal that preserves the area’s status as a manufacturing center but does not add new density.
