Re-Zone Albany, Albany, NY.



In December 2014, the City of Albany embarked on a new initiative to update and streamline the City’s Zoning Code. The two-year effort culminated in a new Unified Sustainable Development Ordinance that better aligns with the City’s priorities and promotes sustainable development. Jason King, leading the Dover, Kohl & Partners Team, teamed up with lead firm Clarion Associates to produce design standards and form-based zoning concepts for several key areas of the city. The team led a series of intensive public design workshops to create vision plans and draft form-based standards for five areas of the city including the Warehouse District just north of Downtown Albany, the Central Avenue and Manning corridor, the South End, the Mid-City Corridor; and the Sheridan Hollow neighborhood.


The specific plans and form-based zoning standards for these neighborhoods were incorporated into the new Unified Sustainable Development Ordinance which went into effect June 1, 2017.
