In all districts, as indicated, a group parking facility may contain additional spaces not to exceed 50 percent of the maximum number otherwise permitted under the provisions of Section 25-12 (Maximum Size of Accessory Group Parking Facilities), if the Commissioner of Buildings determines that:

(a)        access for such facility is located so as to draw a minimum of vehicular traffic to and through streets having predominantly residential frontages;

(b)        such facility has separate vehicular entrances and exits thereto, located not less than 25 feet apart;

(c)        such facility, if accessory to a permitted community facility or commercial use is located on a street not less than 60 feet in width; and

(d)        such facility, if accessory to a permitted commercial use, has adequate reservoir space at the entrance to accommodate a minimum of 10 automobiles.

The Commissioner of Buildings shall establish appropriate additional regulations with respect to the design of such facility to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area, such as requirements for shielding of floodlights.
