Dutch Kills Development Features Bicycle Parking

By Liz Goff
The owner of a former manufacturing plant on 32nd Street in Dutch Kills filed plans with the city Department of Buildings on September 27 to develop a 7-story mixed-use building at the site.

Plans call for demolition of an existing, one-story red brick building at 32-19 32nd Street that served for decades as the home of a plastics manufacturer.

A seven story, mixed-use building is set to rise at the site in the center of the Dutch Kills community. The new building will feature 90 residential units with ground floor retail space and an underground garage with space for 71 cars and 45 “blue” bicycle spaces, the plans show.

The building is one of many new residential developments on the rise in Dutch Kills, made possible under new zoning regulations that went into effect in 2008 under then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The Dutch Kills Civic Association battled with the city for more than 38 years to secure new residential development in the area. The neighborhood was blighted prior to 2008 by arbitrary M1-3 zoning rules that prohibited new housing development.
