(The Municipal Art Society’s Interactive Graphic Illustrating Developers Air Rights)

The Municipal Art Society recently came out with an interactive graphic illustrating the “Air Rights” of developers. For a more thorough description of Air Rights and what this potentially means for your neighborhood, you can click on the explanation from CityLab HERE. This detail helps everyone understand how, or potentially how, The City may change around them. Plus, it’s fun to play with Maps.

The link to the actual mapping site can be found HERE. Note that the areas trending toward Red indicate a greater potential for more, and denser development while the areas trending toward Yellow indicate a lower potential for noticeable development.
