This lot is part of the Newtown Creek Significant Maritime and Industrial Area (SMIA). SMIAs are intended to protect and encourage concentrated working waterfront uses, and are regulated by the NYC Waterfront Revitalization Program (WRP): http://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/applicants/wrp/wrp-2.page?tab=3#collapse3

Most SMIAs are located in environmental justice communities and in storm surge zones, making places that are already overburdened by contamination especially vulnerable to more pollution due to climate change. The New York City Environmental Justice Alliance (NYC-EJA), through its Waterfront Justice Project, has successfully campaigned to update local regulations to address community resiliency and climate adaptation in SMIAs, and continues to research ways to build climate resilient working waterfronts.

This lot is part of the North Brooklyn Industrial Business Zone (IBZ): https://www.nycedc.com/industry/industrial/nyc-industrial-business-zones. The IBZ program is intended to protect manufacturing businesses and jobs from the pressures of the residential and commercial real estate markets by creating zones in the outer boroughs where manufacturing is incentivized, commercial uses are limited, and residential rezoning is not allowed. These protections are not enshrined in law, however, and depend on the priorities of politicians for enforcement.
