Simulation Center Modeling

Then in 1993, The New School’s Simulation Center modeled different zoning scenarios from the Department of City Planning, The Real Estate Board, Oculus (American Institute of Architects) and CIVITAS.

As a result, the zoning was amended not only on the Upper East Side but also in other areas of Manhattan. New buildings will not exceed 35 stories, the street wall will match the other buildings and there will be affordable housing bonuses instead of plazas.
