Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-056

APPLICANT: James M. Thieken; 529 South Third Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Office and retail uses.

GERMAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a single-unit dwelling in the R-2F, Residential District and is subject to ORD #2388-83 (CV83-063), which permits office uses in the existing residential structure with a parking reduction from 9 spaces to 0 spaces. This requested Council variance permits a maximum of 1,500 square feet of retail space or a combination of a maximum of 1,800 square feet of office space and/or 1,000 square feet of retail space within the existing residential structure. The balance of the building will remain a single-unit dwelling. A Council variance is required because commercial offices and retail uses are not permitted in the R-2F, Residential District. A parking reduction from 8 spaces to 0 spaces is included in this request. Staff supports the requested variance because the commercial uses will be located within the existing residential building with no expansion occurring, are limited to maximum square footage amounts, and result in a smaller parking variance than what exists on site presently. Additionally, the requested uses fit the historic development pattern of South Third Avenue, are supported by the German Village Commission, and will not introduce incompatible land uses to the area.
