Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-057

APPLICANT: 328 St. Clair LLC; c/o Dave Perry, David Perry Company, Inc., 411 E. Town Street, FL 1, Columbus, OH 43215 and Donald Plank, Plank Law Firm, 411 E. Town Street, FL 2, Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Six-unit apartment building.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is zoned R-2F, Residential District, and is developed with an existing two-unit dwelling. The applicant proposes complete renovation and re-use of the vacant structure as six-unit apartment building. With the renovation, housing will be provided consistent with prevailing mix of unit types and densities in the area and in close proximity to transit. A variance is necessary because the R-2F District permits a maximum of two dwelling units in one building. Variances to reduce the required number of parking spaces, the width of parking spaces, the location of a dumpster and to conform existing building conditions are included in the request. The site is located within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends existing housing stock be preserved and renovated, and supports additional units in close proximity to transit consistent with the prevailing mix of unit types and densities nearby. The R-2F zoning (Z73-197) is from the 1974 Model Cities down-zoning of the neighborhood, and as a result, there are many non-conforming uses in the R-2F area, including multi-unit residential and commercial uses.
