Explanation

Rezoning Application Z20-025

APPLICANT: Mark Douglas Realty LLC; c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 W. Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Conform existing office building.

GREATER HILLTOP AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on July 9, 2020.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 0.2± acre site consists of one parcel developed with an office building in the AR-1, Apartment Residential District and is within the Urban Commercial Overlay (UCO). The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District would secure proper zoning for the nonconforming office use. The request includes a commitment to a site plan and incorporates variances to reduce the parking setback, parking lot landscaping, and screening, which reflect existing conditions. The site is within the planning boundaries of the Hilltop Land Use Plan (2019), which recommends “Medium-High Density Residential” uses at this location and includes adoption of Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018) which encourage sidewalks, tree lawns, and street trees. Deviation from the Hilltop Land Use Plan is supported given the existing nonconforming use, the proposed sidewalk and landscaping improvements, and the site’s adjacent location to another office building. The request does not represent an introduction of incompatible uses to the surrounding neighborhood.
