Building Placement

These restrictions are sensible for the downtown environment.

Table 23-3C-7070(A) Lot Size and Intensity

These FARs are way too low to achieve the desired height without a lot of above-grade parking. The height acts as a reasonable density control here and therefore FAR controls should be removed in all height-limited CC zones.

Table 23-3C-7070(I) Additional Standards (1) Construction (a) A building must achieve at least a one-star rating under the Austin Energy Green Building program in accordance with Chapter 1-2 (Adoption of Rules) of Title 1 (General Provisions).

How does this compare to current code? How expensive is it for developers to comply with?

It is very bad that there is zero access to density bonuses in the northwest portion of downtown. Allowing denser construction in downtown should be a no-brainer.

It is very good that the limitations on bonusable area have been removed from large portions of downtown.
