15-0129 v2.1/Purchase "Solar Rights"?

QUESTION

Equity: Rights To Nature: Sunlight: Can a project purchase or provide “solar rights” within a block or district for a site that it is shading in order to meet the requirements of the Imperative and increase site density? If so, under what conditions?

ANSWER

The intent of this Imperative is not in alignment with the general premise of purchasing 'solar rights' from neighboring properties so that these will be in shade/without access to daylight. However, we may entertain the possibility of granting an exception should the project team make a substantive and compelling case for a particular situation.
