Transparency Requirements

In all districts, as an alternative to street wall transparency regulations, the following optional provisions may apply, except where buildings are governed by the provisions of Section 64-64 (Design Requirements for Non-residential and Mixed Buildings in Commercial and Manufacturing Districts).

Street walls shall be glazed with transparent materials which may include show windows, transom windows or glazed portions of doors. Such transparent glazing materials shall occupy at least 50 percent of the surface area of such street wall, measured between the level of the first finished floor above curb level and a height 12 feet above such level.
