Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-092

APPLICANT: National Church Residences; c/o Matthew Bierlein, Agent; 2335 North Bank Drive; Columbus, OH 43220.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #1025-2019; Z18-068) to the AR-2, Apartment Residential District. The applicant proposes the construction of an 88-unit senior housing apartment building. A variance to reduce the minimum number of parking spaces required from 132 to 77 spaces is included in the request. The parking reduction variance is supportable because the nature of the development reflects parking numbers that account for residents that will not have private vehicles. Additional variances for increased building height and reduced building lines and minimum side yards are included and are also supportable because they help position the building farther to the east away from adjacent single-unit dwellings, closer to East Livingston Avenue, allowing for parking to be located in the rear.
