Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-011

APPLICANT: JDS Companies; c/o Michael Shannon, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge, LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists one parcel developed with a partially-constructed building in the AR-3, Apartment Residential District which is to be converted into apartments as permitted by rezoning Ordinance #0611-2021 (Z20-091). A concurrent Council variance (Ordinance #0612-2021; CV20-105) was approved with the rezoning to permit reduced development standards for a 54-unit apartment building, including a parking space reduction from 81 to 41 spaces and reduced parking and building setbacks. The requested Council variance carries over the previously approved variances, and corrects the building setback line variance along Thurber Drive West from 16 feet to the existing setback of 13 feet. The site is located within the planning area of the Harrison West Plan (2005) which recommends office/commercial specific land uses for this location. Deviation was supported with Z20-091 given the changing nature of land uses in the immediate area, and the fact that the building was under construction, noting that multi-unit residential development was consistent with the mixed use typology of the area at that time. Staff notes that the proposal is located in an area that is walkable and used by pedestrians and bicyclists, and includes a site plan that depicts additional bicycle parking and parking lot screening. The request is reflective of recent residential infill developments in this urban neighborhood. The Division of Parking Services has previously approved a parking study for this proposal and supports carrying over the requested parking variance.
