Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z21-031

APPLICANT: Central Ohio Community Improvement Corporation; c/o Brian Higgins, Agent; 1349 Dennison Avenue; Columbus, OH 43201.

PROPOSED USE: Mixed commercial development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on July 8, 2021.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a multi-story building known as The Edna and zoned in the CPD, Commercial Planned Development District (Z17-050), and is subject to the East Long Street Urban Commercial Overlay (UCO). The existing CPD District permits mixed-commercial uses within the building and the expansion of a City-owned parking lot on two adjacent parcels. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District, will eliminate the two adjacent parcels from the request, which included the parking lot expansion. The CPD text includes use restrictions and supplemental development standards that address traffic and pedestrian access, fencing, landscaping, building design, lighting, and signage, and also includes a commitment to a site plan. Variances are included to conform the existing building height and to reduce parking from 10 required spaces to 6 provided spaces. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends high density residential and mixed-use development at this location. Staff finds this proposal consistent with the recommendations of the Near East Area Plan for mixed-use development and the restoration of historic buildings, and is compatible with the development pattern along the Long Street corridor. Staff also finds the requested parking variance supportable due to the urban character of the neighborhood and the site’s close proximity to transit.
