Council Variance Application: CV20-126

APPLICANT: Metro Development, c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

NORTHEAST AREA COMMISSION 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 #0744-2021; Z20-126) to the L-AR-1, Limited Apartment Residential District for a multi-unit residential development with a maximum of 360 dwelling units. The requested variances are to reduce parking and building setbacks. The variances are supported and necessary to incorporate design recommendations for placing parking behind buildings, and also because of the presence of a no-build easement over the existing pond in the center of the property. The site design also provides a greater capacity to preserve natural features and include centralized open space as reflected on the site plan included with Rezoning Application #Z20-111.
