On corner lots there shall be maintained a side yard of not less than fifteen feet on the side adjacent to the street which intersects the street upon which the building maintains frontage, and in the case of a reversed corner lot there shall be maintained a setback from the side street of not less than fifty percent of the front yard required on the lots in the rear of such corner lots, but such setback need not exceed fifteen feet. No accessory building on a reversed corner lot shall project beyond the front yard required on the adjacent lot to the rear, nor be located nearer than five feet to the side lot line of the adjacent lots.
