Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z20-091

APPLICANT: JDS Companies; c/o Michael Shannon, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge, LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on February 11, 2021.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 0.62± acre site consists one parcel developed with a partially-constructed building in the M, Manufacturing District. The site was subject of setback and parking variances approved by the Board of Zoning Adjustment in 2015 and 2017 for a proposed 29-unit extended-stay hotel with 1,741 of eating and drinking establishment space, but that project never came to fruition. The requested AR-3, Apartment Residential District will allow the partially-constructed building to be completed as an apartment building. The site is located within the boundaries of the Harrison West Plan (2005), which recommends “Office/Commercial” land uses for this location. Though the proposal is not consistent with these recommendations, given the changing nature of land uses in the immediate area and the fact that the building is under construction, multi-unit residential development is consistent with the mixed use typology of the area and is supported. Planning Division staff notes that the proposal is located in an area that is walkable and used by pedestrians and bicyclists, and has reviewed building elevations and a revised site plan that includes additional bicycle parking and parking lot screening for the concurrent Council variance (Ordinance #0612-2021; CV20-105) which has been filed to reduce the required number of parking spaces and parking and building setback line requirements.
