Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-107

APPLICANT: Woda Cooper Companies, Inc.; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a vacant industrial building, but is otherwise primarily undeveloped and zoned in the M, Manufacturing and AR-1, Apartment Residential districts. The requested Council variance will permit a 46-unit apartment building. Variances to parking lot landscaping and screening, building lines, and height and area regulations are included in this request. The site is within the boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Mixed Use” land uses at this location. Additionally, the Plan includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). This proposed development will be subject to a competitive funding process with the Ohio Housing Finance Agency which requires certain land attributes including compliant zoning. Staff supports the Council variance process to assist in this state funding application process, as Rezoning Application #Z20-001, a request for the ARLD, Apartment Residential District, and concurrent Council variance Application #CV20-002, have been filed and are in process.
