The new division was responsible for design, manufacture and erection of web offset equipment and sales, both at home and overseas. The new printing Machinery Drawing Office was located in part of the Tarslag building and the adjacent single storey brick extension on the car park area between the Old Canteen and Westfield Road.
Also other area-specific zoning regulations for distinct areas have been enforced to direct the development for the desired effect.
In the regulations creating the Fifth Avenue District were enforced. To retain the famous Fifth Avenue shopping district and discourage the trend of services like banks or travel agencies occupying the street level spaces instead, the new zoning restricted these activities to 15 per cent of a new building ground floor area.
The zoning also offered bonuses for mixing of retail and residential uses alongside offices, as well as for creation of a through-block atrium at least 15 m from Fifth Avenue. The buildings were to adhere to the building line along street, and on the west side of Fifth Avenue also a setback of 15 m above the height of 25 m was required.
The opposing Olympic Tower and Piaget Building were the first to make use of the zoning and especially the Olympic managed to amass all available bonuses into a large building for its surroundings. After the demise of the Helen Hayes and Morosco theaters on Broadway in for the construction of the Marriott Marquis Hotelthe City Planning Commission created the Theater District zoning area, bordered by the Sixth and Eighth Avenues and 40th and 57th Streets, restricting the demolition of specified theaters.
As a result, there is a lot of undeveloped potential in form of unused development rights for individual plots, now occupied by landmark theater buildings.
The new regulations would allow transfer from a landmark theater to almost any plot within the whole Theater District.
The owner is obliged to operate the theater for at least the following 25 years and contribute according to the amount of TDRs used to the Broadway Initiative, a theater preservation fund. With the confirmed subdistrict status of the area, the demolition of any of the non-landmark theaters in the area requires a special permit.
The FAR varies from 10 to 14, being highest along Broadway and Seventh Avenue and lowest in the midblocks to the west. The only development bonus is available from the theater rehabilitation as a City Planning Commission special permit bonus.
In addition to the signage requirements, the latest developments in the immediate vicinity of Times Square were, literally, shaped by zoning guidelines. But not the city's. The NY state's 42nd Street Development Project, a subsidiary of the Empire State Development Corporation then called the Urban Development Corporationwas created in to counter the excess of seediness in the area.
The quote "Albert Speer's tribute to the Third Reich" just about summarizes the reception the design got. Ina rezoning work for the southern Times Square area, called "42nd Street Now! The state-owned parcels were not subject to the city's zoning regulations like the World Trade Centerbuilt on Port Authority land and could thus be built to a larger bulk than normally allowed.
The FAR for the larger developments would have been 18 under the city regulations, but the Times Square project guidelines allowed vastly greater densities.
In addition to that, there is no provision for city's ruling that determines setbacks. Thus, the skyscrapers could be built not only covering the whole plot, but also extending upwards without any regard for the sky exposure plane a plot can have a setback requirement even here, but not in all cases.
The Project guidelines gave each plot a required amount of floor area and height to meet instead. And of course the amount of signage required. But as advertisement signs usually are more lucrative financially than actual lease of space, that's hardly a problem either.
Disney's involvement in renovating and subsequently operating the New Amsterdam Theatre gave the reformation effort the visibility and clout it needed.
Soon the office development was again in. In the Durst Organization announced the development of the 4 Times Squarethe first office building in the area since the 1 Astor Plaza of the late s. In contrast to the designs, these buildings sport extensive retail signage as a contextual nod.
The 4 Times Square was subsidized by the state as per the redevelopment financial guidelines, although the Dursts had, in fact, waged a long legal battle in the s to keep the same subsidies from the grasp of the towers' developers The city FAR indicates usable floor space from which the space taken by mechanical spaces has been subtracted.
The floor area allowance provided by the 42nd Street Development Project for each high-rise parcel, in turn, included all the occupied space in the building, along with a floor number limit, requiring the developers to "economize" on the size of any non-revenue-bringing spaces.
Inthe E Walk entertainment and hotel complex, including the future Westin New York at Times Squarewas announced at the Eight Avenue end of the theater row on 42nd Street, following the visual cues of the 42nd Street Now! The main district has a base FAR varying from 12 to 15, with the normal bonuses applying.
In force west of Eighth Avenue, between 41st and 59th Streets, the zoning there restricts the height of midblock buildings to 20 meters, whereas on the corners the pre-special district zoning is applicable and thus allows the construction of taller buildings.
The developers are applicable for tax credits for renovation in buildings that will house at least 20 percent low- and medium-income residents, but the scheme can also provide extra development rights for new projects against all similar, "affordable", residences that the developers provide on the same site or off-site, either by renovating or constructing from the scratch.
The Special United Nations Development District is meant to direct building towards an overall area plan.
The FAR was increased from 10 to 15 in order to fulfill the planning demands and the need for local amenities. In addition to the development-driven air rights transfer scheme at the South Street Seaport, there are also other, restrictive or character-forming districts in Downtown Manhattan.
The nearby Special Greenwich Street Development District aims to control the commercial development next to the World Trade Center and the Battery Park City by optimizing the traffic circulation as well as improving retail and services.Relocating Low-to-Medium Tech Manufacturing Activities to Developing Countries 20 One of the main reasons for firms considering outso urcing decision is to reduce the overall operating cost.
