Rezoning Application: Z16-065

APPLICANT: John Chess; 4263 Gavin Lane; Columbus, OH 43220.

PROPOSED USE: Microbrewery and mixed-commercial development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (7-0) on December 8, 2016.


CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is listed on the Columbus Register of Historic Properties, and is developed with an office building zoned CPD, Commercial Planned Development District. The current CPD (Z84-045) only permits general office uses. The requested CPD will permit an eating and drinking establishment (microbrewery) and general office uses. A 2,265± square foot building addition and 1,373± square feet of outdoor dining area are proposed for the microbrewery. At the time the application was filed, the Northwest Land Use Plan & Design Guidelines (2017), which recommends office uses for this site, was still in draft form. The land use recommendation provides criteria to evaluate a proposal that is inconsistent with the recommendation for office uses, such as development trends in the vicinity of the site, and the proposed use relative to the best use of the site. Based on the historic status of the site and isolation of the site as an office use, Planning Division staff is supportive of the proposed use with the commitments in the CPD text for maintaining the parking setback on the south property line, installing additional landscaping, and preserving mature trees. The CPD text also commits to a site plan, and includes use restrictions and provisions for setbacks, access, graphics, and a parking space reduction variance for 23 required spaces. A concurrent Council variance (Ordinance No. 0752-2017; CV16-065) has been filed to vary distance separation from residential zoning districts for the proposed microbrewery.
