Rezoning Application Z16-035

APPLICANT: Schiff Capital Group; c/o Michael Shannon, Atty., and Eric Zartman, Atty.; 500 South Front Street, Suite 1200; Columbus, OH 43215.


DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (4-1) on December 8, 2016.


CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is zoned in the I, Institutional and C-4, Commercial districts, and developed with an 11-story multi-unit residential development for the elderly. The applicant proposes the CPD, Commercial Planned Development District to convert and expand the building into a maximum 190-room commercial hotel with ancillary operations such as office, catering services, bars and restaurants, exercise facilities, and 1,500 square feet of retail or restaurant space with 450 square feet of outside dining space. The CPD text includes appropriate use restrictions, access provisions, and a commitment to a site plan. The conversion requires variances for reduced setback lines, and a reduction in the required number of parking spaces from 213 to 50, with a minimum additional 17 off-site parking spaces. These variances, along with variances for existing site conditions related to building height and lack of parking lot landscaping and screening, are included in the request. The proposal includes an expansion to the front façade of the building for the lobby and retail space which is consistent with the established building line along North High Street. The proposed uses and site plan are consistent with the zoning and development patterns of this historic urban commercial corridor. The requested parking variance, which is based on maximum parking demand findings for hotels in urban areas, is supported by the Department of Public Service with the lease agreement/cash in lieu commitment in the CPD text.
