Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-049

APPLICANT: The Avenue Apartments LLC; c/o Connie J. Klema; P.O. Box 991; Pataskala, OH 43062.

PROPOSED USE: Apartment building and extended stay hotel development.

CLINTONVILLE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of an undeveloped portion of a parcel zoned in the C-3, Commercial District, and a nonconforming extended-stay hotel development zoned in the M, Manufacturing District. The requested Council variance will permit a three-story 30-unit apartment building as part of a mixed-use development in the C-3, Commercial District, that encroaches into the M, Manufacturing District. The 301-unit extended stay hotel development in the M, Manufacturing District was approved prior to Ordinance #2797-2016, which eliminated extended stay hotels as a permitted use in the M, Manufacturing District. This Council variance will conform that development. BZA20-006 was approved for variances for multiple mixed-use buildings on the remainder of the C-3 portion of the site including increased height, reduced width, and reduced building setback. These variances are carried over in this ordinance to consolidate all of the project’s variances in one action. The site is within the Indianola Avenue Community Commercial Overlay, and the boundaries of the Clintonville Area Plan (2009), which recommends “Mixed Use” land uses at this location. Staff finds the requested variances to be supportable as they are consistent with recent similar urban in-fill mixed-use developments. Planning Division staff has also reviewed conceptual building elevations for the project, and has acknowledged that they are consistent with the Plan’s design guidelines.
