Frontage Types - Shopfront













Shopfront

The facade is aligned directly on the frontage line, with the entrance at grade.
This type is conventional for sidewalk retail. It is often equipped with an awning or a porch. A transition line should separate the signage from the facade
above. The absence of a setback and elevation from the sidewalk prevents residential use on the ground floor, although it is appropriate above.
