In April 2011, Sheldon Lobel, P.C., was successful in securing a zoning map amendment, rezoning a block bounded by Howard Avenue, Eastern Parkway Extension and Pitkin Avenue, in the Ocean Hill area of Brooklyn, from an existing C8-2 zoning district to an R6A/C2-4 zoning district, facilitating redevelopment of this underdeveloped block with viable commercial and residential buildings. Before the rezoning, new residential uses were not permitted as-of right.
