...Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV17-078

APPLICANT: Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority; c/o Travis J. Eifert, Agent; EMH&T, Inc.; 5500 New Albany Road; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Four live-work units or commercial tenant spaces.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of undeveloped land recently zoned to the ARLD, Apartment Residential District (Ordinance #2532-2017; Z17-026) for the third phase of the Poindexter Village redevelopment project. The applicant proposes four live-work units or four exclusively commercial tenant spaces to be located on the ground floor of two 24-unit apartment buildings (two in each building) that will front Mt. Vernon Avenue. A variance is necessary because the proposed live-work units exceed the provisions of the residential home occupation standards, and the alternative proposal for commercial tenant spaces is not permitted within the ARLD, Apartment Residential District. This site is located within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which encourages mixed-used developments in areas within and surrounding commercial nodes. Because of the presence of commercial development in this neighborhood and the existence of the Urban Commercial Overlay, the proposed uses will contribute to the traditional and established development pattern along Mt. Vernon Avenue. The site is also subject to BZA17-089 to vary parking standards, setbacks, and perimeter yard, and is east of a similar proposal in the Poindexter Village Phase 2 (Ordinance #2843-2015; CV15-059) that was approved on November 23, 2015.
