The Pavion Homes project received a variance allowing the number of units to be increased from 109 to 135. The variance, which technically allows for an increased density of housing units, was granted by the Nyack Zoning Board of Appeals at its March 30, 2015, meeting. The ZBA agreed with our position, initially formulated by the project’s architect, Drazen Cackovic, that the building met the allowed FAR, that the number of units allowed by density was fewer than could be realized within the FAR, and that adding commercial space or increasing the size of the units was contrary to the needs of the Village and was economically not feasible. Details of the argument can be found in the ZBA Narrative, a link to which is on the Pavion Homes page.
