(c) In the event a building is used for more than one use, and the floor area for each use is below the minimum requiring a loading space, as set forth in the table below, the required loading space or spaces shall be determined by taking the aggregate floor area of the several uses and applying the requirements of the use category requiring the greatest number of loading spaces.
(d) Loading space required under this section shall not be in any street or alley, but shall be provided within the building or on the lot. The following standards shall also apply to loading spaces:
(1) When only one loading space is required and total floor area is less than 5,000 square feet, the minimum horizontal dimensions of the space shall be eighteen feet by eight feet three inches, and the space shall have a vertical clearance of at least ten feet;
(2) When more than one loading space is required, the minimum horizontal dimensions of at least half of the required spaces shall be twelve feet by thirty-five feet and have a vertical clearance of at least fourteen feet. The balance of the required spaces shall have horizontal dimensions of at least eighteen feet by eight feet three inches and vertical clearance of at least ten feet;
(3) Each loading space shall be unobstructed and shall be arranged so that any vehicle may be moved without moving the other;
(4) Adequate maneuvering areas and access to a street shall be provided and shall have a vertical clearance not less than the applicable height for the loading space;
(5) All loading spaces and maneuvering areas shall be paved with an all-weather surface;
(6) Where loading areas are illuminated, all sources of illumination shall be shielded to prevent any direct reflection toward adjacent premises;
(7) Loading spaces for three or more vehicles shall be arranged so that no maneuvering to enter or leave a loading space shall be on any public street, alley, or walkway;
(8) Each required loading space shall be identified as such and shall be reserved for loading purposes;
(9) No loading space shall occupy required off-street parking spaces or restrict access; and
(10) No loading space or maneuvering area shall be located within a required yard,
(e) An adjustment of up to fifty per cent of the required number of loading spaces may be allowed when the loading spaces are assigned to serve two or more uses of a single development project jointly, provided that:
(1) Each use has access to the loading zone without crossing any street or public sidewalk; and
(2) The amount of loading spaces which may be credited against the requirements for the use or uses involved shall not exceed the number of spaces reasonably expected to be available during differing periods of peak demand.
