At the foot of Macomb St., the Wahnish Cigar Factory is a landmark in the ASN- B district. Presently the deep setback is wasted on parking. Boulder CO A moderate intensity mixed-use building appropriate to the intended character for the ASN-B district. D E S I G N R E V I E W D I S T R I C T S A L L S A I N T S A S N - B T a l l a h a s s e e - L e o n C o u n t y P l a n n i n g D e p a r t m e n t 6. G A I N E S S T R E E T ¸¸ GUIDELINES Preserving a historic structure may be grounds for requesting a deviation from land development regulations, provided other required criteria are met. In the ASN-B district, greater allowable height, less required setback , and greater allowable lot coverage allow more intense, more urban development than in the ASN-A district, with its historical pattern of houses, lawns, and porches. While avoiding nostalgic reproduction, the district’s industrial past can be recalled in simple building masses and in the colors and textures of materials. LDR STANDARDS 10-285.(b)(1)a. On corner lots, new buildings shall be oriented toward the street(s) and shall consider and complement the pattern of existing adjoining development, with the primary facade(s) of the building facing the front lot line or the street side lot line. 10-285.(b)(1)c. Landscape features. Walls and fences at the property line are encouraged. Walls, fences, and hedges (if provided) shall have a maximum height of six (6) feet. The opaque portion of a wall or fence shall have a maximum height of four (4) feet. Walls and fences shall have piers or newel posts at corners and ends. On long stretches or fence or wall, visual monotony shall be minimized through openings, changes of plane or height, or the introduction of landscape or architectural accents, provided such design variations are consistent with the architecture of the principal structure on the site. Prohibited fencing materials include chain link, plastic, or vinyl fencing. Existing rubble retaining walls at the front property line shall be preserved, restored, or replaced with new construction of the same design, materials, and draft techniques as the original walls. 10-285.(b)(1)d. Design features for new buildings. ± 0-285(b)(1)d.2. New buildings wider than the general width of adjacent or buildings across the street shall be broken into facade modules comparable to the widths of existing facades. 10-285.(b)(1)d.3. Commercial buildings and buildings with ground floor commercial uses shall have minimum twelve (12) feet high ceilings at the ground floor. 10-285.(b)(1)d.5. Above the second floor, building masses shall be broken up and modulated, in keeping with a building’s style, to reflect the scale of adjacent structures and avoid overwhelming them.

    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.
