Map of Soft Sites in Moynihan Subdistrict

The Municipal Art Society has created a map of underbuilt lots in the proposed Moynihan Station Subdistrict. The Draft Scope for the project describes the sprinkling of 4.3 million-square-feet of development rights into a new zoning subdistrict surrounding the Penn Station complex. We thought it would be useful to locate the potential development sites (“soft sites”) in the area.

This map categorizes lots by percentage under the maximum floor area ratio (FAR) available. The dark red lots are the most underbuilt and the white lots are built to the maximum FAR. Click on the map below to view it.

This analysis was done under the current zoning, which includes the large portion of the area included in the Special Hudson Yards District. The map does not reveal any significant clusters of underbuilt lots, but keep in mind that the proposed new zoning will certainly increase the number and intensity of soft sites in the subdistrict. We’ll create a map of the new zoning as soon as we have more detailed plans.
