Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-091

APPLICANT: Kreais, LLC, c/o David Hodge and Eric Zartman, Underhill & Hodge, LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Office development.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a portion of a parcel developed with a vacant commercial building that is zoned in the R-4, Residential District. The applicant requests a Council variance to allow general office uses. The lot will be split to allow the office to be located on its own parcel, and the remainder of the lot will be combined with an adjacent parcel to reestablish that lot back to the original plat for residential development. Additional variances to reduce the required number of parking spaces, vision clearance, lot width, lot area, building lines, maximum and minimum side yards, and rear yard, and to increase the lot coverage are included in this request. The site is within the boundaries of the Near Southside Area Plan (2011), which recommends “medium density mixed residential” uses at this location, and further recommends development that would have minimal negative impact on the surrounding residential areas. Additionally, the Plan includes adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (2018) Design Guidelines. The Planning Division supports rehabilitation of the existing building and concludes that the development will be consistent with the commercial design guidelines in Columbus Citywide Planning Policies.
