Streetscape provisions

For the purposes of applying the special “ground floor level” streetscape provisions set forth in Section 37-30 to this Section, narrow streets with a street frontage of 50 feet or more shall be considered “primary street frontages”, as defined in Section 37-311.

On narrow streets, for zoning lots with street frontage of 50 feet or more, ground floor uses limited to Use Groups 6A, 6C, 7B, 8A, 8B, 9A, 10A, 12A and 12B shall extend along a minimum of 50 percent of the width of the street frontage of the zoning lot. Such uses shall extend to a depth in accordance with the provisions of Section 37-32 (Ground Floor Depth Requirements for Certain Uses). The remainder of the street frontage of the zoning lot may be occupied by any permitted uses, lobbies or entrances to parking spaces, provided that lobbies shall comply with the provisions for Type 2 lobbies set forth in Section 37-33 (Maximum Width of Certain Uses).

Enclosed parking spaces, or parking spaces covered by a building, including such spaces accessory to residences, shall be permitted to occupy the ground floor, provided that such spaces are wrapped by floor area or screened in accordance with the provisions of Section 37-35 (Parking Wrap and Screening Requirements), as applicable.

For any development or enlargement that includes a ground floor street wall, each ground floor street wall occupied by uses listed in Use Groups 1 through 15, not including dwelling units, shall be glazed in accordance with the provisions of Section 37-34 (Minimum Transparency Requirements).
