(4) Types of habitable structures permitted to exceed height limits. Public, semi-public or public service buildings, hospitals, institutions or schools, where permitted, may be erected to a height not exceeding 90 feet when the required side and rear yards are each increased by one foot for each one foot of additional building height above the height regulations for the district in which the building is located.

(3) On through lots the front yard requirements shall apply to all street frontages.
(c) Corner lot accessory buildings. Where a corner lot adjoins the side boundary of a lot in a residential district, no part of any accessory building within 25 feet of the common lot line shall be nearer the street bounding the side lot line than the least depth of any front yard required along such side street.
(d) Lots adjoining alleys. In calculating the area of a lot that adjoins an alley for the purpose of applying lot area requirements of these zoning regulations, one-half the width of such alley abutting the lot shall be considered as part of such lot.
