Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-011

APPLICANT: 2468 Summit Holdings, 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: An eight-unit apartment building.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a two-story mixed-use building in the R-2F, Residential District. Council variance CV90-1048, passed November 5, 1990 (Ordinance #2686-90), permits the use of the building as six dwelling units and commercial uses. The applicant is seeking a Council variance to convert the commercial spaces to dwelling units, creating an eight-unit apartment building. Variances to parking and building setbacks, lot coverage, lot area, lot width, floor area ratio (FAR), landscaped area and treatment, side yards, hard surface for parking, and a parking space reduction from 12 spaces to 4 spaces are included in the request. The site is located within the boundaries of the University District Zoning Overlay and is within the planning area of the University District Plan (2015), which recommends “Lower Intensity Residential” land uses at this location. Although the proposed density exceeds the recommendations of the Plan, staff notes the proposal will maintain an existing contributing building which is consistent with the Plan’s design guidelines.
