(A) The presence of multiple stores/structures gives a center a stronger community character and appearance by creating variety, breaking up large expanses of building or parking lots and expanding the range of the site’s activities. Architecture, landscaping and window displays of the stores/structures should be used to contribute to the visual interest of the site. The standards presented in this section are directed toward those situations where additional, smaller buildings and stores, with separate, exterior customer entrances are located in the principal buildings or scattered throughout the site.
(B) Any parcel containing a building of more than 80,000 square feet shall include at least one of the following approaches to adding variety to the site.
