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

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

This variance is requested to reduce the required building setback along Cassady Avenue from 50 feet to 25 feet for buildings and 19 feet for balconies. Staff supports the variance as it will allow the apartment complex to be designed with parking to the side or rear of the buildings, and will allow the buildings to be moved closer to Cassady Avenue to achieve a pedestrian friendly environment as recommended by the Northeast Area Plan (2007).
