M26 - Pedestrian Oriented Uses & Amenities on Ground Floor

Include active, pedestrian-oriented commercial uses on the ground floor to create more walkable and inviting areas. Developments should form common and semi-continuous building “walls” along primary street frontages and have uses that promote a high level of customer use and promote pedestrian interest. Providing on-site amenities such as cafes, gyms, childcare, retail or banking institutions, for example, can encourage walking by making the street visually appealing and engaging to pedestrians and promote safety through active street-level uses.
