CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

The site is within the boundaries of the planning area of West Franklinton Plan (2014), which recommends “Medium-High Density Mixed Residential” at this location. Additionally, the Plan includes adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). The proposal includes a commitment to develop the site in accordance with the attached site plan which depicts dwellings at the northwest and southwest corners of the site, parking behind buildings, building design, street trees, and ample bicycle parking as recommended by the Plan and C2P2 Design Guidelines. A concurrent Council Variance (Ordinance #2897-2021; CV21-080) proposes a use variance to permit the three single-unit dwellings in the Apartment Residential Office district and includes standard variances for reduced building lines and perimeter yard, and increased building height for the existing building.
