Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-023

APPLICANT: South End Hotel, LLC; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Michael Kelley, Atty.; 175 South Third Street, Suite 1020 Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Mixed-use building.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a non-conforming mixed-use building in the M, Manufacturing District. The building has 25 dwelling units and a mix of commercial uses, and was originally used as a hotel. The applicant requests a Council variance to remodel the building with 24 dwelling units and 2,340 square feet of eating and drinking establishment space. Variances to permit reduced aisle width and to reduce the minimum number of parking spaces required from 59 to 8 are included in this request. The site is within the boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Mixed Use” land uses at this location. Additionally, the Plan includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018), which state that requests for parking reductions can be considered based on the surrounding mixed-use development pattern, the presence of on-street parking, access to public transit, and pedestrian accessibility. The site is an existing building in a walkable, mixed-use area, with on-street parking and access to public transit along Parsons Avenue. As such, Staff supports the proposed use and parking reduction as the proposal preserves an existing contributing building and is consistent with the Plan guidelines.
