Conceived by Department of City Planning in the 1980s, contextual zoning allows the City to regulate the height, bulk, setback, and street frontage of new buildings as a way to preserve neighborhood character. How effective has contextual zoning been in encouraging residential and commercial development that fits in with the scale and character of existing buildings?
