Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-101

APPLICANT: Parallel Company; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

UNIVERSITY IMPACT DISTRICT REVIEW BOARD RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #0740-2021; Z20-086) to the AR-3, Apartment Residential District. The applicant proposes a 143-unit apartment building and is requesting variances for residential trees, density, landscaping area and treatment, lot coverage, a parking space reduction from 434 to 143 spaces, building lines, building size, maximum floor area ratio (FAR), and building height. Staff finds the requested variances to be supportable as they will allow multi-unit residential development that is consistent with high-density residential development directly west and south of this site, and with the University District Plan’s recommendation for “Higher Intensity Residential” land uses at this location. A parking study was required and has been approved by the Division of Parking Services resulting in staff support for the parking reduction variance. Additionally, the proposed apartment building is subject to design approval from the University Impact District Review Board.
