In all districts, as indicated, the entrances and exits of all permitted or required accessory group parking facilities and all permitted public parking lots or public parking garages with 10 or more spaces, shall be located not less than 50 feet from the intersection of any two street lines. However, access located within 50 feet of such intersection may be permitted if the Commissioner of Buildings or, in the case of public parking lots or public parking garages permitted in accordance with the provisions of Article VII, Chapter 4, the City Planning Commission, certifies that such a location is not hazardous to traffic safety and not likely to create traffic congestion. The Commissioner of Buildings or the City Planning Commission may refer such matter to the Department of Transportation for a report and may base its determination on such report.

The waiver provisions of Sections 36-24 or 36-38 (Waiver of Requirements for All Zoning Lots Where Access Would Be Forbidden) shall apply when the Commissioner of Buildings has certified that there is no way to arrange the spaces with access to the street to conform to the provisions of this Section.
