Map 2 (Commercial Streets) in the Appendix to this Chapter specifies locations where the special ground floor use regulations of this Section apply.
Uses on the ground floor of a building shall be limited to commercial uses, except for Type 1 lobbies and entrances to accessory parking spaces provided in accordance with Section 37-33 (Maximum Width of Certain Uses). Such commercial uses shall comply with the minimum depth provisions of Section 37-32 (Ground Floor Depth Requirements for Certain Uses). In addition, accessory parking spaces, including such spaces accessory to residences, shall be permitted on the ground floor, provided they comply with the provisions of Section 37-35 (Parking Wrap and Screening Requirements). The level of the finished floor of such ground floor shall be located not higher than two feet above nor lower than two feet below the as-built level of the adjoining street.
Any street wall of a building developed or enlarged after October 23, 2008, where the ground floor level of such development or enlarged portion of the building contains commercial or community facility uses, shall be glazed in accordance with the provisions of Section 37-34 (Minimum Transparency Requirements).
For the purposes of this Section, Bank Street shall be considered a street. However, this Section shall not apply to a stadium use within the North Waterfront Subdistrict.
The provisions of Section 32-422 (Location of floors occupied by commercial uses) are modified to permit dwelling units on the same story as a commercial use provided no access exists between such uses at any level containing dwelling units and provided any commercial uses are not located directly over any dwelling units. However, such commercial use may be located over dwelling units by authorization of the City Planning Commission upon a finding that sufficient separation of residential uses from commercial uses exists within the building.
