ASN-D, Corridor Mixed-use District includes the north side of Gaines Street between Railroad Avenue and South Boulevard Street, across Gaines Street from the All Saints neighborhood. ASN-D shares purpose, intention, regulations, and guidelines with ASN-C , but allows taller buildings. University Urban Village (UV) District centers on a high intensity urban activity corridor. The area is envisioned as a primary local destination for living, working, shopping, and entertainment. The district promotes pedestrian-oriented redevelopment in a balanced mix of residential and commercial uses at a greater intensity than in the adjacent districts, in attached buildings with a dynamic, very urban character.

The Gaines Street Urban Revitalization District will reflect a unique image and character, providing an opportunity for true urban living in Tallahassee. The District should be identifiable to visitors and residents by the pattern of restored historic neighborhoods; by the higher density village centers; by the compact scale and design of housing and commercial buildings; by the landscaping and lively mix of activity along existing and proposed major boulevards; by the scale of local and connector streets; and by the mature vegetation and proximity to open space. —The Gaines Street Report (2001) Wallace Roberts & Todd LLC Click cover to view the Report.

Design Review A s part of the site plan approval permitting process, development in the Gaines Street districts is subject to review by the City’s Urban Design Commission (UDC). The UDC reviews projects to ensure that they contribute to the urban and architectural character envisioned for their locations, as described in the Gaines Street Report, adopted Land Development Regulations, and these guidelines. The Urban Design Commission was created in 2005: To promote high quality design in new developments, new buildings, and modifications to existing buildings in the Design Review Districts; in the FSU Transition Area; in Urban Planned Unit Developments (UPUDs) in the Downtown Zoning Districts; and in other places in the City as directed by the City Commission. To ensure that development at any scale in those areas conserves and enhances what is recognized as special about the character of a location, and that infill development is appropriate to its context. To advocate the best urban design, with special emphasis on street character, relationships between buildings, and the pedestrian’s safety, comfort, and sense of place.

    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.
