(a)                     For any #zoning lot# located in a Historic District designated by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the minimum base height of a #street wall# may vary between the height of the #street wall# of an adjacent #building# before setback, if such height is lower than the minimum base height required, up to the minimum base height requirements of this Chapter.

 

(b)                     In #Special Mixed Use District# 2 in the Borough of Brooklyn, where the designated #Residence District# is an R8X District, the maximum base height of a #street wall# may vary between the maximum base height set forth in this Chapter, and the height of the #street wall# of an adjacent #building# before setback, if such height is higher than the maximum base height set forth in this Chapter. For the purposes of this paragraph (b), a #building# situated directly across a #street# from a #development# shall be considered an adjacent #building#.

 

On #waterfront blocks#, as defined in Section 62-11, where the designated #Residence District# is R3, R4 or R5, the height and setback regulations of Section 62-34, inclusive, shall apply to #buildings and other structures#, except that for #mixed use buildings#, the height and setback regulations set forth in Section 123-661 (Mixed use buildings in Special Mixed Use Districts with R3, R4 or R5 District designations) shall apply.
