17.3.B.2 Required Uses for Properties Abutting Canal Street

a.  In all CBD Districts, where a lot abuts Canal Street, at least seventy percent (70%) of the Canal Street frontage of the ground floor of any structure on the lot shall be allocated for occupancy by one (1) or more commercial uses and/or multi-family amenity components. Such uses shall have a minimum depth of ten (10) feet from the wall of the structure that faces Canal Street. Only the frontage of those uses, not including corridors or other spaces used in common with other uses, is counted in determining the amount of frontage allocated.

b.  For any hotel/motel located in a structure on a lot that abuts Canal Street in any CBD District, the lobby of the hotel/motel may count toward meeting one-half (1/2) of the seventy percent (70%) frontage requirement.

c.  For the purpose of meeting these space requirements, space will qualify only if it is at street level and if it is directly accessible to the public from a sidewalk or other public pedestrian way.

d.  The following uses are prohibited in properties that abut Canal Street in any CBD Districts:

i.  Restaurant, Fast Food

a. Except when the unit has a primary entrance on a street intersecting Canal Street and that entrance is at least 100 feet from Canal Street, and no part of the Fast Food use has frontage along Canal Street.
