Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-095

APPLICANT: WODA Cooper Companies, Inc., c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, First Floor; Columbus, OH 43215, and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, Second Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is comprised of three parcels each developed with a single-unit dwelling in the R-1, Residential District. The requested variance would permit redevelopment of the site with two 32-unit apartment buildings, for a total of 64 units. A Council variance is necessary because the R-1 district lists single-unit dwellings as the only permitted residential use. The site is within the boundaries of the Trabue Roberts Area Plan (2011), which recommends “Neighborhood Commercial” land uses at this location. Staff recognizes that this site is located on a primary corridor and that the revised site plan included a concept for a comprehensive redevelopment strategy for the entire block, as requested by staff. The site plan represents a high level of design and is consistent with the Plan’s design guidelines. Staff believes that multi-unit residential development of this density should be rezoned to an appropriate apartment residential zoning district and afforded the full review process applicable to rezoning applications, including a public hearing and review by the Development Commission. For that reason, this ordinance is conditioned on a follow-up rezoning to an appropriate zoning designation within one year of its effective date.
