Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV16-073

APPLICANT: Pickett Companies, c/o Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development, and monopole telecommunications tower.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance # 1947-2017; Z16-073) to the AR-2, Apartment Residential District, to allow a multi-unit residential development. The applicant is requesting a Council variance to permit a 40-unit apartment complex with a reduction to the minimum number of parking spaces required and setbacks. Also proposed are variances to AR-2 district use, height, and setbacks to conform an existing monopole communications antenna. Staff is supportive of these variances as the project respects and enhances the neighborhood character, while the existing tower is appropriate with the mix of adjacent commercial and manufacturing uses. The request is reflective of recent residential infill developments in this urban neighborhood.
