Building application for 876 Bergen Street - Too tall?

NYYIMBY reports that an application has been filed to put up an 8 story, 80ft apartment on the narrow (24') lot at 876 Bergen Street, between Franklin and Classon, former home of the big yellow "Crown Heights" mural.

The application lists a FAR of 3.41, but the zoning documents (PDF) I found say the max is 2.2 - or possibly 2.42 if it is designated with Inclusionary Housing. 

Does anyone here know more about the process and can answer ...

... is it normal for developers to submit applications so far off base?
... are these errors usually caught, or do we have to inform someone?
... do I have the wrong zoning information?
