Explanation

Council Variance Application CV19-134

APPLICANT: Northstar Realty; c/o Jackson B. Reynolds, III, Attorney; Smith & Hale LLC; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit dwelling.

GERMAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is currently developed with a multi-tenant commercial building zoned in the C-4, Commercial District and R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow a portion of the building zoned in the C-4, Commercial District to be converted to a single-unit dwelling. The structure was originally constructed as a single-unit dwelling and was converted to an office use when it was connected to the adjacent structure to the east by a building addition. The variance is necessary because single-unit dwellings are not permitted in the C-4, Commercial District. Staff supports the proposal given the mixed-use nature of this historic neighborhood and because the structure will be restored to its original residential purpose. The request will not add an incompatible use to the neighborhood.
