CORAL GABLES CHARRETTE: NORTH PONCE NEIGHBORHOOD
Townhouses and Live Work Units The townhouse is a single family dwelling with common walls on the side lot lines, which allow for the development of a continuous façade along the street. The live work unit is defined as a flexible commercial building type with one dwelling above a commercial loft. Alleys typically serve both of these typologies, as the quantity of required parking must be accommodated at the rear to preserve pedestrian continuity along the street. The provision for these types of housing no longer exists; however we hope to revive the use of these typolo- gies within the southern portion of the North Ponce area closest to Downtown.
