For enlargements to buildings in Area G, on zoning lots with a lot area of at least 10,000 square feet and existing on March 22, 2016, the City Planning Commission may:
(a) modify the provisions of Section 94-092 (Maximum floor area ratio) to increase the permitted floor area ratio for commercial use to 2.0 provided that such enlargement:
(1) is designed so as not to impair the character of the surrounding area or its future development; and
(2) will not cause undue congestion on local streets or impair pedestrian circulation;
(b) modify the height provisions of paragraph (a) of Section 33-431 (In C1 or C2 Districts with bulk governed by surrounding Residence District) relating to the requirements in Section 32-42 for location of uses within buildings, to allow a commercial building or portion thereof to exceed 30 feet in height or two stories, provided that such building shall not exceed a maximum height of 35 feet or three stories, whichever is less; and provided that the distribution of the bulk permits adequate access of light and air to surrounding streets and properties, and does not impair the view of the Bay; and
(c) waive or reduce the number of accessory off-street parking spaces required by Section 36-21 (General Provisions) for such use, provided that the applicant has demonstrated that the number of accessory off-street parking spaces supplied is sufficient to meet the parking needs of such use.
The Commission may prescribe appropriate additional conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area.
