Manhattan BP Gale Brewer mulls decision on de Blasio’s SoHo/NoHo rezoning plan


Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer heard testimony Monday evening on the de Blasio administration’s plan to rezone SoHo and NoHo, the last hurdle in the advisory process for approving the change.

A month after Manhattan Community Board 2 adopted a resolution to reject the rezoning, which city officials hope will create more affordable housing in the affluent enclave, Brewer will give the administration her recommendation of whether or not it should proceed before the Department of City Planning (DCP) evaluates the plan for themselves.
