No building shall be erected, reconstructed or altered so as to project in any manner beyond a line which is distant from the street line the average distance therefrom of the buildings fronting on the same side of the street within the block at the time of the passage of Ordinance 2816, passed January 5, 1949. Where there are existing buildings at the time of the passage of Ordinance 2816, passed January 5, 1949, on only one side of the street within the block, then the setback line on the vacant side shall be the same as the improved side of the street within the block. Where there is no building fronting on either side of the street within the block, no new building shall be erected with its street wall or walls nearer than twenty-five feet to the street line; however, this provision does not include steps, uncovered porches and covered unenclosed porches on the first story which do not extend more than ten feet beyond the front wall of the building. On a corner lot, the street frontages which are not opposite to the rear lot line shall be exempt from the above provisions.
