Coney North and Coney West Subdistricts

In the Coney North and Coney West Subdistricts, uses allowed by the underlying district regulations shall apply, except as modified in this Section for uses fronting upon streets specified on Map 2 (Mandatory Ground Floor Use Requirements) in the Appendix to this Chapter. For the purposes of this Section, the “building line” shown on Parcel F on Map 2 shall be considered a street line of Ocean Way or Parachute Way, as applicable. Furthermore, an open or enclosed ice skating rink shall be a permitted use anywhere within Parcel F in the Coney West Subdistrict.

(a)        Mandatory ground floor level uses along certain streets

Any use listed in Use Groups A, B and C, as set forth in Section 131-12, inclusive, not otherwise allowed by the underlying district regulations, shall be permitted within 70 feet of Riegelmann Boardwalk and within 100 feet of all other designated streets, as shown on Map 2.

(1)        Riegelmann Boardwalk

Only uses listed in Use Groups A, B and C and transient hotels located above the ground floor level are permitted within 70 feet of Riegelmann Boardwalk, except that a transient hotel lobby may occupy up to 30 feet of such ground floor frontage along Riegelmann Boardwalk. Use Group C uses shall be limited to 2,500 square feet of floor area and 30 feet of street frontage for each establishment. All other establishments shall be limited to 60 feet of street frontage, except that for any establishment on a corner, one street frontage may extend up to 100 feet. All ground floor uses within buildings shall have a depth of at least 15 feet measured from the street wall of the building. However, such minimum depth requirement may be reduced where necessary in order to accommodate vertical circulation cores or structural columns associated with upper stories of the building.

(2)        Streets other than Riegelmann Boardwalk

At least 20 percent of the frontage of a building or of an open use, on a street specified on Map 2, shall be allocated exclusively to uses listed in Use Groups A, B or C. The remaining frontage of such building or open use, on a specified street, shall be allocated to commercial uses permitted by the underlying district regulations or, where permitted, a transient hotel. In addition, a residential lobby may occupy up to 40 feet of frontage along a specified street frontage.

There shall be at least four separate ground floor or open commercial establishments fronting upon each block fronting on Surf Avenue.

All ground floor commercial uses within buildings shall have a depth of at least 50 feet measured from the street wall of the building. Such minimum 50 foot depth requirement may be reduced where necessary in order to accommodate a residential lobby, vertical circulation cores or structural columns associated with upper stories of the building.

(b)        Prohibited ground floor level uses along streets other than Riegelmann Boardwalk

No use listed in this paragraph, (b), shall be permitted within 50 feet of a street specified on Map 2. Lobbies or entryways to non-ground floor level uses are permitted, provided the length of street frontage occupied by such lobbies or entryways does not exceed, in total, 60 feet.
