D. 
Form-based regulations:
(1) 
Applicability; sets of regulations; purpose; gross floor area of residential component.
(a) 
T-5C. The following form-based regulations shall apply to any application for residential use, either alone or as part of a mixed use. The district includes form-based regulations intended to implement the "T-5C Corridor" designation in areas included in the district. The purpose of the T-5C transect is to foster the retrofit and redevelopment of auto-oriented large-scale suburban and strip-mall shopping centers into mixed use nodes with a walkable urban fabric through good planning principles.
72-3 transect regulating plan 1.tif
(b) 
The T-5C transect contains three sets of form based regulations:
[1] 
Urban fabric standards. Urban fabric standards transform the organization of the land from expanses of asphalt parking lots, commercial driveways, and separated single-use developments into a network of streets and blocks that include formal open spaces, mixed uses, and transitional zones. The retrofit of aging, inefficient surface parking lots into vibrant mixed-use nodes will minimize infrastructure costs and environmental impacts by promoting compact, mixed-use, infill development that links with existing traditional neighborhood areas and districts.
[2] 
Frontage standards. Frontage standards create an active, attractive, and safe public and semipublic edge where the development site abuts a street. Frontage standards include streetscape and street landscaping standards, building placement standards (called "build-to zones"), and parking lot location standards. These standards promote the evolution of the City's existing shopping-center-oriented corridors into a more safe, harmonious, and attractive environment through the definition and activation of the public realm between the street and the building face, the definition and activation of yards and open spaces, and the transition between the development and adjoining uses.
[3] 
Lot and building type standards. Building type and lot standards complete the built form. Standards, including building orientation, entrance location, overall transparency, first floor height minimums, and maximum building widths, require that the buildings shape the public realm and activate street frontages and other public open spaces. Standards including maximum building heights and widths also ensure that the form of the development transitions appropriately in mass, scale, and intensity towards adjacent land uses and transects.
(c) 
Together, the T-5C form-based regulations ensure that, when residential uses are introduced, aging shopping centers evolve into mixed-use nodes comprised of human-scale streets, a clearly defined building envelope, and public spaces, all of which contribute to creating a safe, comfortable environment with a high standard of living.
72-3 aging shopping center.tif
(d) 
The residential component of a mixed-use development with a residential density exceeding 12 units per acre shall constitute at least 20%, and no more than 80%, of the gross floor area of the development.
(2) 
Urban fabric standards.
(a) 
Development site. The development site shall include all the land, buildings, and structures, both existing and proposed, used to calculate the total residential density, use mix, or floor area ratio calculations for a development.
[1] 
The entire development site shall be shown on an approved site plan in accordance with § 72-26.1 (Commercial and residential site development plans).
[2] 
All land, buildings, site elements, and other features of the development site (i.e., land or buildings used for density or use-mix calculations) shall be brought into conformance with the standards in § 72-32.4D as well as all other applicable standards in the Unified Development Ordinance.
72-3 urban fabric standards development site.tif
(b) 
Access. Existing streets and street types shall be continued through the development site. A network of interconnected streets is required in order to provide adequate pedestrian and motor vehicle access to the development. The character of the streets and adjacent yards is established by the standards in Section 72-5, Development Standards, as well as the frontage designation as described in § 72-32.4D(2).
72-3 urban fabric standards access.tif
(c) 
Establishment of blocks. The entire development site, including all nonresidential uses shall be organized into blocks meeting the standards in § 72-51.2.
72-3 urban fabric standards blocks.tif
(d) 
Transitional zones. A transitional zone shall be designated along any property line abutting a single-family residential use.
[1] 
The transitional zone shall extend into the property a depth equal to the median depth of all abutting single-family residential lots.
[2] 
A forty-foot setback is required along any property line abutting a single-family residential use. Accessory structures may encroach into this setback. Within the setback area there shall be either:
[a] 
A dedication of a public or private alley meeting the standards in § 72-52.3; or
[b] 
A Type D landscape buffer if the Zoning Administrator determines that an alley is not feasible due to physiographic limitations.
[3] 
Transitional buildings are the only building type permitted in the transitional zone and shall be designed in accordance with § 72-32.4D(4).
72-3 urban fabric standards transitional zones.tif
(e) 
Open space. General and formal open space shall be designed into the project. The objective of the informal open space is to provide for transition between the development and adjoining uses, and for stormwater management and utility placement. Formal open spaces shall facilitate social interaction. Formal open spaces allow human activity throughout the development and avoid dead or unsafe zones. Formal open spaces shall meet human needs for being outdoors and for recreation. They shall include trees, landscaping, furniture, and sidewalks.
72-3 urban fabric standards open space.tif
[1]
General open space: 25% of the site shall be general open space meeting the standards of § 72-51.5.
[2]
Formal open space: 50% of the general open space shall be developed as formal open space meeting the following standards:
[a]
Type
The formal open space shall be a plaza, playground, square, or courtyard as defined in § 72-84.
[b]
Minimum adjacency
25% of the perimeter of formal open space shall adjoin a frontage.
[c]
Minimum width/length
The minimum length and width of formal open space is 50 feet.
[d]
Maximum width/length ratio
The maximum width to length ratio is 1:4.
[e]
Minimum landscaping
The number of plants equivalent to what would be required for a Type B landscaping buffer measured along the longest side of the formal open space shall be planted and may be distributed within the formal open space.
(3) 
Frontage standards.
(a) 
Frontages, generally. The frontage map entitled "Frontage Regulating Plan," dated May 30, 2018, is hereby incorporated and made a part of the Official Zoning Map. Development frontages not shown on the Frontage Map shall be designated by the Zoning Administrator in accordance with the applicable frontage definitions. Where retail frontage designations intersect Route 3 or primary frontages, the retail frontage may extend along Route 3 or the primary frontage a maximum distance of 250 feet.
(b) 
Frontages shall create the form and fabric of the development and the public realm. Frontages create an active, attractive, and safe public and semipublic edge where the development site abuts a street. In addition, frontages interior to the site shall produce a connected environment through the site, enlivening the development's internal connections and spaces.
(c) 
Frontages, public component, private component, and building type permitted lines. Frontages are composed of three basic elements: the public component, private component, and a building type permitted line. The public frontage consists of the land and elements between the center line of the street and the public right-of-way or street easement line. The private frontage consists of the yards, building placement tools, and parking lot placement tools on private property. The building type permitted line controls which building types are permitted along the frontage.
72-3 frontage regulating plan 1.tif
(d) 
The public and private components of any designated frontage shall contain the elements listed in the following chart, meeting the standards of Article 72-5.
