EC-3 was created to promote a varied and active retail environment while maintaining the retail continuity found along the Broadway corridor. The special district provisions apply ground floor frontage limitations for new and expanding banks and residential lobbies, and retail transparency requirements for new buildings. Overall store sizes are not restricted, and stores can be laid out with any configuration, including the basement, second story, wrapping behind, or along corner frontages. Existing banks and residential lobbies with frontages exceeding what is permitted along Broadway in EC-3 are not affected.”
