Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-017

APPLICANT: OBrien Development LLC; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; Dave 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: Mixed-use development.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning request to the AR-3, Apartment Residential District (Ordinance # 2189-2021; Z21-013) to permit multi-unit residential development. The requested Council variance will permit a mixed-use development containing a maximum of 17 apartment units and approximately 900 square feet of ground floor commercial space and 200 square feet of seasonal patio space. Variances are included to permit the commercial use, to increase building height and lot coverage, and to reduce building lines, rear yard requirements, driveway width, and the minimum number of parking spaces from 36 required spaces to 17 provided spaces. Because the request provides one parking space per dwelling unit, and the parking demand for the commercial use is not believed to significantly burden the on-street parking network, a parking study was not required by the Division of Parking Services, and staff is supportive of the requested parking reduction. Staff finds the requested variances to be supportable because the site and conceptual building elevations are consistent with the Near East Area Plan's (2005) design guidelines. The request is also consistent with recent urban infill development projects that have been approved in the Near East area.
