|DEMONSTRATION OF UNDUE HARDSHIP OR HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT STRUCTURE:|
| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of physical limitations of the construction site or its utility services.
|Y|| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of major operational problems in the use of the building or structure.
|Y|| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of excessive costs of additional or altered construction elements.
| Imposition of the rule would prevent the preservation of an architecturally or a historically significant part of the building or structure.
|Facts:|| The construction of a fire wall between the existing building and the addition is a cost and operational hardship. The construction of the wall is cost prohibitive due to the length of the structure. A wall between the buildings would inhibit the free flow of materials and constrain the available space for material handling and manufacturing.
