Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-108

APPLICANT: OBrien Company, LLC; 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: A two-unit dwelling with a carriage house.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a two-unit dwelling in the R-4, Residential District. The applicant proposes to construct a rear single-unit dwelling above a detached garage (a carriage house). A Council variance is required because while the R-4, Residential District permits a maximum of four dwelling units in one building, it does not permit two separate dwellings on the same lot. Variances for minimum number of parking spaces required, lot coverage, minimum floor area ratio (FAR), lot width, area district requirements, fronting, minimum side yard permitted, and rear yard are also included in the request. The site is within the boundaries of the University District Plan (2015), which recommends “Lower Intensity Residential” land uses for this location. Staff finds the proposal to be consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation and the recent development pattern in urban neighborhoods.
