The conversion of any building into a dwelling so as to accommodate an increased number of dwelling units or families shall be permitted only within a district in which a new building for similar occupancy would be permitted under this Zoning Code, and only when the resulting occupancy will comply with the requirements governing new construction in such district with respect to minimum lot size, lot area per dwelling unit, dimensions of yards and courts and off-street parking.  The aforesaid requirement with respect to yards and courts shall not apply where the conversion does not involve any exterior structural change.
