Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-063

APPLICANT: Flat 51 LLC; c/o Matthew Cull, Atty.; Kephart Fisher LLC; 207 North 4th Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Mixed commercial development.

GERMAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of two parcels zoned in the R-2F, Residential District, one developed with two commercial buildings and accessory parking, and the other developed with accessory parking. The site is subject to Ordinance #3207-97 (CV97-026A), which permits a range of commercial uses with a parking space reduction from 252 to 127 spaces with conditions for specific development standards. The requested Council variance expands the permitted uses to allow retail and event space uses on the second floor of the Columbus Watch Building (the north building) which is currently limited to office uses. Included in the request are variances to permit stacked parking, to reduce the number of required parking spaces from 250 to 120, and to not provide a loading space. Applicable development standards from CV97-026A are being carried over into the request. The site is located within the boundaries of the German Village Commission historic district. Expanding the site’s mixed commercial uses is consistent with the development pattern of the area, and the use and operational controls ensure compatibility with adjacent residential uses. As the revised parking reduction for five additional spaces is negligible, the requested parking variance is supported, and a parking study was not required.
