Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-137

APPLICANT: Kelley Companies; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Michael Kelley, Atty.; 175 S. Third Street, Suite 1020; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Apartment building.

NEAR EAST 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 request to the AR-3, Apartment Residential District (Ordinance #1650-2020; Z19-100) for a new multi-unit residential development. The requested Council variance proposes a 51-unit apartment building, and includes variances to increase building height from 35 to 44 feet and lot coverage from 50 to 54%, with a reduction in building lines, vision clearance triangles, side yards, and a parking space reduction from 77 to 21 spaces. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which supports the development of new infill housing that contributes to a walkable and diverse neighborhood, compatible with existing architecture in the area and with the Plan’s housing design guidelines. Staff supports the proposal as it is compatible with surrounding residential uses and architecture, and is consistent with recent urban infill development projects that have been approved in this neighborhood.
