people live. Live-work is distinguished from purely residential use by having work performed in the unit. In district ASN-B, for non-live-work units, residential uses shall never be located on a floor below a commercial use in a vertical mixed-use project. The intensity of the uses should decrease as the floors go up. In districts ASN-C, ASN-D, and UV, commercial uses and/or personal services are required on the ground floor of a vertical mixed-use project. Residential uses are prohibited from being located on a floor below a commercial use in a vertical mixed- use project with the exception of lobbies and common circulation areas, which may be located on the ground floor. The intensity of the uses should decrease as the floors go up. See the Tallahassee Land Development Regulations for the complete standards. 1. 2.

Roof lines, bay windows, and color break up the building’s mass and differentiate living units. no yes yes Cambridge MA Recesses and projections, material changes, color, and transparency modulate a building’s bulk. Denver Lower floors “hold” the street at the setback; upper floors step back, reducing bulkiness and making room for amenities; the corner is given special treatment. 3.b.2. Scale and Massing S cale and massing are fundamental three-dimensional factors that determine how well a building fits with a neighborhood. Scale is the relationship between an element and its context. Human scale elements reflect human use and occupation, seen in dimensions and proportions readily comparable to the size, movement, and comfort of a human body. In an urban context, building scale is judged by height, bulk, wall openings, and intensities of use, relative to nearby space, streets, buildings, and people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
