Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z20-101

APPLICANT: Lawndale Commons, LLC; c/o Jill Tangeman, Atty.; 52 East Gay Avenue; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on March 11, 2021.

GREATER SOUTH EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 32.9± acre site consists of a single undeveloped parcel in the PUD-6, Planned Unit Development District. The requested L-ARLD, Limited Apartment Residential District will permit a multi-unit residential development containing up to 336 apartment units. While the South East Land Use Plan (2018), recommends “Low Density Residential” land uses at this location, the increased density at this site is supportable because the submitted limitation text and site plans demonstrate high quality landscaping and screening, which includes mounding and fencing, usable open space that is connected by trails to internal sidewalks and adjacent parkland, and a series of interconnected streets, sidewalks, and paths leading to adjacent developments and parkland, all of which are consistent with Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines. Additionally, the applicant has committed to architectural elevations which are supported by Planning Division staff, and has also agreed to limit traffic access to Long Road with access to Bowen Road restricted for emergency vehicles only. The applicant will comply with the City’s Parkland Dedication Ordinance by dedicating seven acres of parkland bordering an existing Metro Park.
