Explanation

Rezoning Application Z17-009

APPLICANT: OhioHealth Corporation; c/o Christopher N. Slagle, Atty.; 100 South Third Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Parking lot.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-1) on May 11, 2017.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is currently developed with an office building zoned in the C-2, Commercial District. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District will permit redevelopment of the site with a 901-space employee parking lot for hospital and administrative office staff, and will alleviate parking shortage issues resulting from the construction of new administrative office and structured parking facilities on existing surface parking lots. The site is within the boundaries of the Olentangy West Area Plan (2013), which recommends office uses at this location. The Planning Division recognizes the proposed parking lot will serve the various offices and medical facilities associated with OhioHealth/Riverside Hospital. The Plan also recommends that parking should be balanced with the goal of reducing the development’s impact on the natural environment; that landscaping and screening should be utilized to enhance development; and that appropriate corridor landscaping should be provided. The CPD text commits to a site plan, and includes variances to allow angled spaces to be 17.5 feet deep, and to reduce the required number of parking lot trees from 91 to 76. To offset the reduction in the number of required parking lot trees, shade trees and shrubs are proposed within the parking setback area which will supplement landscaping along Olentangy River Road. With the landscaping proposed, the request is consistent with the zoning and development pattern of the area.
