Plan for Rezoning the City of New York: A Report Submitted to the City Planning Commission

New York: Harrison, Ballard & Allen, 1950. The firm’s proposal for the revision of the pioneering 1916 New York City Zoning Resolution. The post-war realization of the city’s growth and the need for modern large-scale planning necessitated a new zoning ordinance. The Ballard plan revised population estimates, considered planning developments in Europe and the US since 1918, and used new standards to determine building bulk and other matters of concern to the real estate industry. The Plan failed to be adopted, most likely because of the opposition of Robert Moses, and a new plan by Vorhees, Walker, Smith & Smith was created in 1958 and eventually adopted in 1960.
