Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-111

APPLICANT: Zimmer Development Company, LLC; c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Ground floor residential uses.

BREWERY DISTRICT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant received a recommendation of approval from the Development Commission on December 9, 2021, for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance No. 0289-2022, Z19-082) to the CPD, Commercial Planned Development District, which permits C-4, Commercial District uses. A mixed-use development is proposed. The requested Council variance will allow ground floor residential uses that would otherwise be prohibited, and includes a reduction to the minimum number of required parking spaces for multi-unit residential development from 1.3 from 1.5 parking spaces per unit. This request is consistent with other recent mixed-use developments, and assists in achieving the Brewery District Plan’s (1992) guideline of encouraging housing to be a permitted use on the Whittier Street Peninsula.
