Wake Forest Unified Development Ordinance - July 2022

Building Design Standards 5.9 Compatibility


5. Landscaping and Trees: Use landscaping and trees to achieve compatibility in areas where these are unifying elements of community character.


Viewshed Protection: Important vistas and views of the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary’s church steeple shall be protected and accentuated to the extent practical.


Architectural Features: Consider designing buildings to respond to

prevalent architectural features of the surrounding context, especially in areas where patterns established by recurring architectural features are well- documented and valued. Consideration should also be given to avoid mimicry of existing buildings, so that opportunities for the continuation of the evolution of architectural style are not stifled.


Street Vistas: Important street vistas (such as along town gateways and primary pedestrian streets) should terminate in a focal point, such as a building or other architectural or landscape feature.
