Appendix 3.1 specifies locations where a #mandatory front building wall line# is required. #Buildings# shall have a mandatory front #building# wall coincident with and constructed along such #mandatory front building wall line# for a minimum of 80 percent of the length of the frontage required to have the mandatory front #building# wall, which shall rise without setback for a height above #curb level# not less than 110 feet nor more than 140 feet in subzone C-1, and not less than 60 feet nor more than 140 feet in subzone C-2, except that the mandatory front #building# wall on Murray Street within subzone C-2 may rise without setback to the maximum height established pursuant to Section 84-333 (Limited height of buildings) and, provided further, that the mandatory front #building# wall requirement shall not apply to the #building# frontage along a pedestrian right-of-way in subzone C-2.
However, where Appendix 3.1 shows a mandatory front wall along Murray Street, such front #building# wall may be located either along the #street line# on Murray Street or at a right angle to North End Avenue within 30 feet from the intersection of Murray Street and North End Avenue.
At 140 feet above #curb level#, the #building# must set back at least 15 feet from the #street line# of Vesey Street, North End Avenue and Murray Street, except that there shall be no required setback along Murray Street in subzone C-2. Front wall recesses for architectural and decorative purposes are permitted in mandatory front walls, provided that:
- the aggregate area of front wall recesses below the maximum height of the required front wall is less than 50 percent of the required mandatory front #building# wall;
- the maximum depth of any recess shall be 20 feet;
- recesses with a depth of less than two feet shall not be considered recesses for the purposes of this Section; and
- recesses shall not be open to the sky.
