Rezoning Application Z20-007

APPLICANT: Gamma Columbus LLC; c/o Aaron L. Underhill, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Office and limited commercial development.



CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 3.97± acre site consists of one parcel developed with two office buildings split-zoned in the L-C-4, Limited Commercial and CPD, Commercial Planned Development districts (Z00-012A), with a portion of the parcel developed with a parking lot in the R-1, Residential District. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District would establish a unified zoning district for the existing development, legitimize the northern parking lot which was developed without an approved permit, and accommodate a future lot split. The CPD text permits office uses with limited accessory commercial uses and contains a commitment to a development plan. The request also includes variances to reduce the parking setback, lighting and landscaping requirements, and aisle width; to exceed the maximum parking requirement; and to allow aisles, parking spaces, driveways, and maneuvering areas to be divided by property lines. Staff supports this proposal as the text includes appropriate use restrictions that are compatible with the Northeast Area Plan’s recommendation of office land uses at this location. The text also includes development standards that demonstrate sufficient buffering and landscaping from neighboring residential uses, incorporates a detailed site plan, and commits to conform to Community Commercial Overlay (CCO) building design and graphics standards upon redevelopment of the site. The rezoning request does not represent an introduction of incompatible uses to the surrounding neighborhood.
