            i.   Height
         All developments greater than 35’ in height must result in an effective transition of heights from abutting low-density residential (20 units per acre or less) development to the tallest portion of the development. The effective transition of heights is intended to demonstrate compatibility of heights with abutting low-density residential development and to demonstrate that the tallest portions of the development are appropriately located including a gradual and incremental increase in height that is proportionally tiered and reasonably distributed.
            ii.   Density
         Development parcels with two or more density area designations shall unify for development purposes and may cluster units within the most intense density area of the development parcel.
