Frontage Types - 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.
