Curb Cut Restrictions
No driveway curb cuts for parking facilities or loading berths shall be permitted along 126th Street, the primary retail street, the connector streets, across from public open space of two or more acres, and within 50 feet of the intersection of any streets, except for a convention center or a transient hotel with a minimum of 50,000 square feet of floor area, and except that the City Planning Commission may authorize curb cuts, provided the Commission finds that such curb cuts are needed, do not unduly inhibit surface traffic or pedestrian flow and do not impair the essential character of the surrounding area.
Where permitted, the maximum aggregate width of curb cuts on any frontage shall be limited to 24 feet for residential streets and 60 feet for all other streets, except that the maximum width shall be 100 feet for blocks that bound the intersection of 126th Street and Northern Boulevard or 126th Street and Roosevelt Avenue and for blocks that contain a transient hotel with a minimum of 50,000 square feet of floor area. For a convention center, the maximum aggregate width of curb cuts on any frontage shall be limited to 100 feet, except that curb cuts shall be unlimited when located directly adjacent to the loading area of the convention center. All curb cuts shall be achieved with minimal reduction to the grade of the sidewalk over which they pass.
