j.Any business premises or multiple occupancy building having a Floor Area greater than 3 000 m2 or a single wall length greater than 40.0 m visible from a public roadway, shall include design elements that reduce the perceived mass of the building and add architectural interest and landscaping adjacent to exterior walls shall be used to minimize the perceived mass of the building and to create visual interest.
k.All mechanical equipment, including roof mechanical units, shall be concealed by screening in a manner compatible with the architectural character of the building or concealed by incorporating it within the building.

o.Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Zoning Bylaw, individual business identification signs located on the façades of building shall be similar in proportion, construction materials and placement. The Sign shall be designed and located so as to ensure that the signage does not detract from the overall appearance of the development and is not obtrusive, having regard to the scale of the building on the Site and to the distance of the building Setback.
p.The exterior wall finishing materials shall be predominantly composed of muted colours, with strong colours limited to use as an accent, so as to minimize the perceived mass of the building.
q.The adjoining sites to the north shall be integrated by direct on-site access connections to facilitate convenient, efficient and free flowing vehicular traffic and pedestrian movements between Sites, wherever such access is not prohibitive due to such factors as Grade, Site configurations and the location of existing development, including utility services, and where integration is desirable due to the existing or potential type of adjacent Use. The Development Officer shall waive this requirement if the applicant for the development permit can show that after reasonable effort, exercised over a period of no less than 60 days, the applicant has been unable to obtain the required consent from the adjacent property owner for integration and inter-site connections.

Loading bays shall be located in such a manner as not to impede the safe and efficient flow of traffic and pedestrian movement and to minimize impacts on adjacent land Uses.
t.Prior to the issuance of the Development Permit, detailed Landscaping Plans shall be submitted to and approved by the Development Officer. All Landscaping Plans shall ensure a high standard of appearance and a sensitive transition for the surrounding land Uses.
