GLEN PARK NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL TRANSIT DISTRICT.
This is Sec. 738.1. of the San Francisco Planning Code, titled “GLEN PARK NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL TRANSIT DISTRICT..” It is part of Article 7, titled “NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS.” It contains 1 laws.
The Glen Park Neighborhood Commercial Transit (NCT) District lies primarily along Diamond Street from Chenery Street to Monterey Boulevard and Chenery Street from Thor Avenue to Castro Street and includes adjacent portions of Wilder Street, Bosworth Street, Joost Avenue and Monterey Boulevard. The district is mixed use, with predominantly two and three story buildings with neighborhood-serving commercial and retail uses on lower floors and housing or offices above. The area is well-served by both local and regional transit including the Glen Park BART station, Muni bus lines, and a Muni light rail stop (J-Church).
The Glen Park NCT is designed to protect and enhance the neighborhood's intimate scale, walkability and "village" atmosphere. Human-scaled buildings with neighborhood-serving uses such as specialty retail stores, restaurants, and local offices are encouraged. Buildings may range in height, with height limits allowing up to three and four stories depending on location. Rear yard corridors above the ground story and at residential levels are generally preserved.
Commercial uses are encouraged at the ground story. Retail frontages and pedestrian-oriented streets are protected by limiting curb cuts (i.e. driveways, garage entries) as well as requiring ground floor commercial uses on portions of Diamond and Chenery Streets. Housing development is encouraged above the ground story. Housing density is not controlled by the size of the lot but by dwelling unit standards, physical envelope controls and unit mix requirements. Given the area's location and accessibility to the transit network, accessory parking for residential and commercial uses is not required. Any new parking is required to be set back to support a pedestrian friendly streetscape.
