§ 14-602. Use Tables.

This section contains a series of tables identifying the uses allowed in Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Special Purpose districts. See § 14-602(3) (Residential Districts); § 14-602(4) (Commercial Districts); § 14-602(5) (Industrial Districts); and § 14-602(6) (Special Purpose Districts) respectively.

(a) Use Classification System.

For the purpose of this Zoning Code, uses are classified into use categories and subcategories. These are described and defined in § 14-601 (Use Categories). Use categories and subcategories are identified in the first column of the use tables. In some cases, specific use types are listed in addition to the use subcategories.

(b) Permitted Uses.

Uses identified with a "Y" in the use tables are permitted as-of-right in the subject zoning district, subject to compliance with any use-specific standards identified in the final column of the use tables and all other applicable standards of this Zoning Code.

(c) Special Exceptions.

Uses identified with an "S" in the use tables are allowed if reviewed and approved in accordance with the special exception procedures in § 14-303(7) (Special Exception Approval). Uses approved by special exception are subject to compliance with any use-specific standards identified in the final column of the use tables and all other applicable standards of this zoning code.

(d) Prohibited Uses.

Uses identified with an "N" are expressly prohibited. Where use categories and subcategories are not listed in a use table, they are also prohibited.

(e) Use-Specific Standards.

The "Use-Specific Standards" column of use tables identifies use-specific standards that apply to some uses. Unless otherwise expressly stated, compliance with such standards is required regardless of whether the use is permitted as-of-right or requires special exception approval. Additional use regulations and standards may also be imposed through overlay zoning districts (See Chapter 14-500 (Overlay Zoning Districts)) or elsewhere in this Zoning Code.

Building types are permitted in Residential districts in accordance with Table 14-602-1.A. Principal uses are allowed in Residential districts in accordance with Table 14-602-1. Uses classified as accessory uses, such as home occupations, are not regulated by the use table. Accessory uses are permitted in conjunction with allowed principal uses, provided they comply with all applicable regulations of § 14-603 (Use- Specific Standards) and § 14-604 (Accessory Uses and Structures).

(a) Notes for Table 14-602-1.

[1] In the RM-1 district, the minimum lot area required per dwelling unit is as follows, provided that, whenever the calculation of permitted number of dwelling units results in a fraction of a dwelling unit, then the number of permitted dwelling units shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number:

(.a) A minimum 360 sq. ft. of lot area is required per dwelling unit for the first 1,440 sq. ft. of lot area.

(.b) A minimum of 480 sq. ft. of lot area is required per dwelling unit for the lot area in excess of 1,440 sq. ft.; provided that, if the green roof conditions set forth at § 14-602(7) are met, the number of units allowed is 25% greater than indicated by the foregoing lot size requirements, applied prior to the inclusion of any other applicable increases in allowable units.

[2] Must be in a completely enclosed detached building.

[3] In the RMX-1 district, a cumulative total of up to 50 sq. ft. of office, retail and commercial service floor area is allowed per dwelling unit that is included in the approved master plan. Space occupied by visitor accommodation uses is not counted as part of the total.

[4] In the RMX-2 district, a cumulative total of up to 100 sq. ft. of office, retail, and commercial service floor area is allowed per dwelling unit that is included in the approved master plan. Space occupied by visitor accommodation uses is not counted as part of the total.

[5] In the RMX-3 district, retail sales and commercial service uses may not exceed 25% of the total gross floor area. Retail sales uses must be located on the ground floor of a building, except that, in the area bounded by Cherry Street, 23rd Street, John F. Kennedy Boulevard and the right-of-way of CSX Railroad, retail sales uses may be located above the ground floor provided that such retail sales uses have a direct entrance or entrances from the ground floor. Commercial service uses may be located on any floor of a building.

§ 14-603(15)

Principal uses are allowed in Commercial districts in accordance with Table 14-602-2. Uses classified as accessory uses, such as home occupations, are not regulated by the use table. Accessory uses are permitted in conjunction with allowed principal uses, provided they comply with all applicable regulations of § 14-603 (Use-Specific Standards) and § 14-604 (Accessory Uses and Structures).

(a) Notes for Table 14-602-2.

[1] When the proposed use is in an attached or semi-detached building, the household living use regulations of the residential district to which it is attached apply. Otherwise, the residential use regulations of the most restrictive adjacent residential district apply. If there is no adjacent residential district, single-family household living shall be permitted and two-family and multi-family household living shall be prohibited.

[2] In the CMX-2 district, the number of permitted dwelling units is as follows, provided that, whenever the calculation of permitted number of dwelling units results in a fraction of a dwelling unit, then the number of permitted dwelling units shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number:

(.a) A maximum of two dwelling units are permitted for lots less than 1,440 sq. ft. in area;

(.b) A maximum of three dwelling units are permitted for lots that are 1,440 sq. ft. to 1,919 sq. ft. in area; and a minimum of 480 sq. ft. of lot area is required per dwelling unit for the lot area in excess of 1,919 sq. ft.; provided that

(.c) If the green roof conditions set forth at § 14-602(7) are met, the number of units allowed is 25% greater than indicated by the foregoing lot size requirements, applied prior to the inclusion of any other applicable increases in allowable units, and the provisions of subsections (.a) and (.b), above, shall not apply.

[3] In the CMX-2 and CMX-2.5 districts, in order to promote active uses at the street level, buildings must contain a use other than residential and other than parking along 100% of the ground floor frontage and within the first 30 ft. of building depth, measured from the front building line.

[4] Reserved.

[5] Office, retail, and commercial service uses located on the first floor may not occupy more than 2,000 sq. ft. of gross floor area, nor may any office, retail, or commercial service uses be located on or above the second floor.

[6] In CMX-4 and CMX-5 districts, underground parking garages are permitted; otherwise any portion of a parking garage located above ground level requires special exception approval.

[7] Two-family household living is permitted in the CMX-3 district provided at least 50% of the ground floor frontage contains a non-residential use, or the lot area is less than 1,440 sq. ft.

[8] In the CMX-2.5 district, the minimum lot area required per dwelling unit is as follows, provided that, whenever the calculation of permitted number of dwelling units results in a fraction of a dwelling unit, then the number of permitted dwelling units shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

(.a) A minimum of 360 sq. ft. of lot area is required per dwelling unit for buildings less than or equal to 45 ft. in height.

(.b) A minimum of 270 sq. ft. of lot area is required per dwelling unit for buildings greater than 45 ft. in height.

(.c) Provided that if the green roof conditions set forth at § 14-602(7) are met, the number of units allowed is 25% greater than indicated by the foregoing lot size requirements, applied prior to the inclusion of any other applicable increases in allowable units, and the provisions of subsections (.a) and (.b), above, shall not apply.
