Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-055

APPLICANT: Side Now, LLC; dba Affordable Columbus Housing; 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: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a hotel zoned in the C-4, Commercial District. The requested Council variance will permit conversion of the existing building into 180 apartment units. The site is within the planning boundaries of the Northland 1 Area Plan (2014), which recommends “Community Commercial” land uses at this location. Although the request is not consistent with this recommendation, it meets policy objectives for providing affordable housing along transit corridors and includes augmented interior parking lot trees as requested by the Planning Division. This proposed development will be subject to a competitive funding process by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development which requires certain land attributes including compliant zoning. Staff supports the Council variance process to assist in this state funding application process as Rezoning Application #Z21-060, a request for the AR-1, Apartment Residential District, has been filed and is in the formal review process.
