PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

NORTH LINDEN AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #2974-2019; Z19-056) to the AR-2, Apartment Residential District. The site is to be developed with a 45-unit apartment building previously permitted by a Council variance (Ordinance #3301-2018; CV18-085). This Council variance will accommodate reduced development standards associated with the newly-established AR-2, Apartment Residential District. Variances for reduced parking lot landscaping and screening, reduced parking from 68 spaces to 46 spaces, and reduced building setback line along Cleveland Avenue are included in this request. Staff recognizes that these variances allow the development to contribute to the traditional and established building pattern of this urban corridor.
