Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-031

APPLICANT: The Wood Companies; c/o Michael T. Shannon and Eric Zartman, Attys.; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; Columbus, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

ITALIAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of three undeveloped parcels zoned in the C-4, Commercial District. The applicant previously received approval of a Council variance (Ordinance #1354-2014; CV14-005) to allow a 72-foot tall apartment building with a total of 42 dwelling units. This new request will allow for an increase in both building height to 81 feet and total number of dwelling units to 65. Variances to reduce the clear vision triangle and building setback line remain the same. The site is within the boundaries of the Short North Special Parking Area and will need to follow the necessary process for any parking deficiencies. There is no Council adopted plan for this area, but the increase in height and density are supportable because they are consistent with the surrounding development pattern along the North High Street corridor. The reduced development standards are also supportable because they allow for compatible design and placement of the building consistent with the urban character of the neighborhood.
