Rezoning Application: Z20-040

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

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.



CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with an industrial facility zoned in the M, Manufacturing District. Ordinance #0275-2019 (CV18-097) has been approved for a 60-unit apartment building at this site. Staff supported the Council variance to assist in the state funding application process, subject to the filing of a rezoning application to an appropriate zoning district. The requested AR-1, Apartment Residential district will permit multi-unit residential development consistent with the Council variance approved by City Council. The site is within the boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Mixed Use” at this location. Additionally, the Plan includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018), which recommend the use of high quality and durable building materials, as well as front facades that provide aesthetic appeal through appropriate use and placement of doors and windows. Concurrent Ordinance #2625-2020 (CV20-046) is included with this project, and proposes variances to building height, landscaping and screening, and a parking reduction from 90 spaces to 62 spaces for a 60-unit apartment building. Additionally, the site will be developed in accordance with an associated site plan. Staff finds the request to be consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendations and had previously reviewed building renderings for consistency with C2P2 Design Guidelines.
