Every part of any high rise building is also within a building envelope formed by two lines intersecting at the mid-point on each development site boundary or High Rise Plan Area boundary, whichever is applicable, and any road boundary that lies adjacent to the building to be erected, such that each line forms an angle of 35 degrees with that site boundary.
