Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-085

APPLICANT: Plaza Properties; c/o Jackson B. Reynolds III, Atty.; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Conform existing apartment/office building.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a multi-story apartment/office building zoned C-4, Commercial District. The requested variance addresses existing conditions to preserve reconstruction rights mainly due to recent right-of-way acquisitions for Healthy Community Way and Ohio Health Parkway. Variances for ground-floor residential use, increased building height, reduced parking lot landscaping and screening, reduced parking and building setbacks, and a parking space reduction from 285 required to 266 provided spaces are included in the request. The site is within the boundaries of the Olentangy West Area Plan (2013), which recommends “Regional Mixed Use” at this location, which is consistent with the existing development. The site will also be augmented with street trees, dumpster screening, and additional bicycle parking as recommended by the Plan.
