A "typical" "buildable" townhouse lot is 5,000 square feet (50 wide X 100 deep). A lot that is (50 wide X 100 deep) can have townhouses with a front deck or decks only, no rear decks. A lot that is (50 wide X 110 deep) can have front and rear decks. Set backs are:front set back is 15 feet from the sidewalk to the start of the front deck or building if no front deck, rear set back is 20 feet from rear property line to the rear of the building or the start of the rear deck, side set back is 15 feet total with a minimum of 5 feet from one side property line. (So side set backs can be 7.5 feet each side or at a minumum of 5 feet on one side and a 10 feet on the other side). The maximum height of a building can be no more than 35 feet high.
According to the zoning, only a "single house" can be built on a lot that is less than 5,000 square feet. Only two units can be built on a 5,000 square foot, or larger, piece of ground. Anything different must go before the Sea Isle City "Zoning Board" for approval / variances.
The entire building on a lot can occupy no more than 70% of the total square footage. So a 5,000 square foot lot (50 wide X 100 deep) can take a building that is 3,500 square feet. Divide by 2 for a side-by-side townhouse and each side gets 1,750 square feet of living space not counting the garage for each side. The bigger the lot, the bigger the house (side-by-side or single).
