Receive an overview of current New York City law governing zoning lot mergers and the transfer of unused development rights, known as “air rights,” between contiguous and non-contiguous lots, as well as the mechanics and practical considerations involved in such matters. Speakers will review relevant provisions of the NYC Zoning Resolution, explain core concepts and explore title issues unique to zoning lot mergers and the transfer of development rights, and review each form required for zoning lot merger transfers. The program will include a case study highlighting many of the common issues, and some rarer ones as well, that come up during development rights transfers. Other topics to be covered include special zoning districts with incentives for development rights transfers.
