Standards variances are requested for reduced vision clearance, building line, and perimeter yard requirements, and to increase lot coverage. Perimeter landscaping as requested by Planning Division staff to mitigate reduced setbacks is provided on the site plan committed to with this proposal. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which supports the development of new infill housing that contributes to a walkable and diverse neighborhood, compatible with existing architecture in the area and with the Plan’s housing design guidelines. Staff supports the proposal as it is compatible with surrounding residential uses and architecture, and is consistent with recent urban infill development projects that have been approved in this neighborhood.
