New development is subject to site design review under chapter 18.5.2, and must comply with site development and design standards in part 18.4 and this section.

A. C-1 and E-1 Zones. Development under the TT overlay option and located in the C-1 and E-1 zones is subject to the following standards:

1. Building Mass. Building facades within 25 feet of a residential zone or facing a street shall meet one of the following standards to reduce building mass. This standard applies along the perimeter of the development and shall not apply between buildings or lots within a development. See minimum side or rear yard requirement for buildings abutting a residential zone in table 18.3.14.050.

a. Incorporate a step back of ten feet for that portion of a building which is over 25 feet or two stories in height, whichever is greater. The building step back requirement does not apply to parapets. See Figure 18.3.14.060.A.1.a.

B. R-2 and R-3 Zones. Development under the TT overlay option and located in the R-2 and R-3 zones are subject to the following standards:

1. Detailed Site Review Standards. Lots with frontage on Ashland Street shall be subject to the building placement, orientation, and design standards in section 18.4.2.040, including the detailed site review standards.

Plazas and pedestrian areas shall count as floor area for the purposes of meeting the minimum FAR. Projects including existing buildings or vacant parcels of one-half an acre or greater in size shall achieve the required minimum FAR or provide a shadow plan that demonstrates to the approval authority how development may be intensified over time to meet the required minimum FAR.

4. Building Mass. Building facades within 25 feet of a residential zone or facing a street shall meet one of the following standards to reduce building mass. This standard applies along the perimeter of the development and shall not apply between buildings or lots within a development. See minimum side or rear yard requirement for buildings abutting a residential zone in table 18.3.14.050.

a. Incorporate a step back of ten feet for that portion of a building which is over 25 feet or two stories in height, whichever is greater. The building step back requirement does not apply to parapets. See Figure 18.3.14.060.B.4.a.
