Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV17-020

APPLICANT: Preferred Living; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance # 1932-2017; Z17-008) to the L-AR-2, Limited Apartment Residential District to allow a 614-unit apartment development. The requested variance will accommodate building, parking, and south perimeter yard setback variances, and will permit potential lot splits into three parcels for financing purposes, necessitating technical variances for landscaping, interior perimeter yard, and parking-related standards. Staff finds the requested variances to be supportable as they will allow a higher-density multi-unit residential development that is consistent with the “Mixed Use 2” land use recommendation of the Northwest Plan (2016). The reduced building and parking setbacks are supported because the site has frontage on three public streets, and central open space is being provided. The south perimeter yard variance is negligible because an existing large retention pond that will serve this development and adjacent commercial properties is located directly south of the site. The technical variances required for potentially splitting the property into three separate lots are routine, with similar requests being approved by City Council and the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
