86 ENVISION FRANKLIN | Design Concepts USES Primary Live-Work Units, Single-Family Residential, and Transitional Office. Individual buildings may include a mix of residential and transitional-office components. Secondary Accessory Dwellings and Recreation FORM Building Placement Buildings and their main entrances should be oriented toward the street. Double frontage, reverse frontage, and flag lots are discouraged. The front setback for infill buildings should be within a range determined by the existing historic structures on the same block face. New buildings should not be closer to the street than any historic structure nor further from the street than any historic structure. As long as it is within this range, the new building will not be out of character with the rest of the block. If the same block face does not have any historic structures, then the established setback should be maintained. Side-yard setbacks of new buildings should be consistent with other buildings along the street so that the established rhythm is not disrupted. Rear-yard setbacks of new buildings should be designed to maintain privacy for both new and existing neighboring properties. Building Character New building forms should have single-family-style architecture, pitched roof lines, and similar facade and scale widths in order to be compatible with the predominant character along the street. Building Height New buildings should have a maximum of two stories and should appear to be within one-half story of the established building height along the street in order to ensure compatibility. Lot Size Lot depths, sizes, and widths vary along and between individual streets, and new developments should be designed to ensure that lots are appropriately sized for each street and to promote contextual compatibility. Minimum of 6,500 square feet. SITE DESIGN Landscape Infill developments should have landscaping and street trees consistent with surrounding established lots. Amenities Institutional uses and public parks serve as active and passive recreation and meet the open-space needs in this area. Bicycle and pedestrian connections to these locations should be improved. OFFICE RESIDENTIAL
