Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-054

APPLICANT: 1444 N. High, LLC; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; Dave Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, First Floor; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, Second Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Mixed-use development.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

UNIVERSITY IMPACT DISTRICT REVIEW BOARD RECOMMENDATION: Approval

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with two apartment buildings zoned in the AR-O, Apartment Office District. The site is subject to Ordinance #1658-2018 (CV17-084) which permitted a mixed use building consisting of 2,900 square feet of ground floor commercial use and five townhouse units along the frontage of North High Street on the same lot as the existing apartment buildings. The requested Council Variance will establish a new set of variances that will accommodate a lot split so that the new construction is on a separate lot (west parcel) from the existing apartment buildings (east parcel). The site is within the Regional Commercial subarea of the University District Zoning Overlay, the University Impact District, and is subject to review by the University Impact District Review Board (UIDRB). The site is within the planning area of the University District Plan (2015), which recommends “Regional Mixed Uses” at this location. The proposed development is designed to integrate well with the surrounding High Street corridor. Staff supports this request as it is consistent with the Plan's land use recommendations and guidelines, and will not add incompatible uses to the corridor.
