  • A proposed total Floor Space Ratio of 0.83 for the site (Approximately 2,365 sq. ft.),
    • 0.20 FSR for the existing house
    • 0.63 FSR for the infill house
  • Proposing total heights of approximately
    • 27.7 ft. (Heritage)
    • 34.7 ft. (infill)
  • Infill house to include attached two-car garage having vehicular access from Stephens Street.

Under the site’s existing RT-8 zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted. However, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.
