PROPOSED USE: Sixty-unit apartment building.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #2565-2020; Z20-040) to the AR-1, Apartment Residential District. The subject site is being developed with a 60-unit apartment building as permitted by Ordinance #0275-2019 (CV18-097). This Council variance will carry over the previously-approved variances which are necessary in the newly-established AR-1 district. Variances for increased building height, reduced parking lot screening, and a reduction of 28 required parking spaces are included in the request. Staff recognizes these variances to be negligible as they conform the approved site plan for this apartment building, and are reflective of residential infill redevelopment projects in urban areas.
