Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-072

APPLICANT: Collegiate Development Group; c/o Michael Shannon, Atty.; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Mixed-use development.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval.

UNIVERSITY IMPACT DISTRICT REVIEW BOARD RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of five parcels developed with commercial uses in the C-4, Commercial District. The requested Council variance will permit a mixed-use building consisting of 9,062 square feet of retail development and 174 dwelling units (397 bedrooms), with some residential uses on the ground floor. Variances to minimum numbers of parking spaces required, vision clearance, and building height standards are included in this request. The site is within the Regional Commercial subarea of the University District Zoning Overlay. The University District Plan (2015) recommends this area for “Regional Mixed Use,” which supports mixed use corridors with the most dense development and building height up to 72 feet. The Plan also states that the design of the new construction should be compatible with nearby contributing buildings and the surrounding streetscapes, and that existing buildings that contribute to the district’s diverse character be preserved. The proposal is consistent with the Plan’s recommendations to preserve existing buildings and contribute to the streetscape and neighborhood character. Additionally, while the proposed height is 85 feet, preservation of streetscape, setbacks from High Street and the high quality of design mitigate impacts of the proposed additional height.
