Notes:

1. Where commercial overlays are mapped in these residential areas (C1-5 or C2-5) 2 FAR of commercial is allowed. The overall permitted maximum FAR is the same as permitted by the underlying residential district for residential development.

2. Maximum streetwall heights and building heights are not specified for non-contextual districts. Building bulk is instead determined by other factors including the permitted FAR, the required open space ratio (OSR) and the building’s relation to the sky exposure plane (SEP).

3. The 'M' suffix denotes a requirement that non-residential buildings being converted to residential use must preserve a specified amount of manufacturing or commercial space in that building or another building within a defined area of East Chelsea (Z.R. Section 15-20).
