Off-site parking in public parking facilities

Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS), a public parking garage or public parking lot may include permitted or required accessory off-street parking spaces which are accessory to uses on a separate zoning lot, provided that:

(a)        the uses to which they are accessory are on a zoning lot within a waterfront block;

(b)        the entrance to the facility is not further than 1,000 feet from the nearest boundary of the zoning lot occupied by the uses to which it is accessory; and

(c)        the ownership requirement for such accessory off-street parking spaces is satisfied by an interest commensurate with the interest of the principal use.

Whenever accessory parking spaces are provided off-site within a public parking facility, the number of spaces and the use to which they are accessory shall be recorded on the certificates of occupancy for both the principal use and the public parking facility.
