Rezoning Application: Z22-037

APPLICANT:  Perennial Housing Partners, LLC; c/o Rebecca Mott, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East   Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE:  Multi-unit residential development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:  Approval (5-0) on August 11, 2022.


CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION:  Approval.  The site consists of a single parcel developed with an 80-suite extended stay hotel zoned in the L-C-4, Limited Commercial District. The applicant is requesting the L-AR-1, Limited Apartment Residential District to permit the conversion of the 80-suite hotel into an 80-unit apartment complex (29.4 units per acre). The limitation text commits to a site plan and landscape plan, and establishes appropriate use restrictions and supplemental development standards to density, setbacks, access and parking, and landscaping and buffering. The site is within the planning area of Hamilton Road Corridor Revitalization Plan (2008), which recommends “hospitality and attraction” land uses at this location. Despite this recommendation, Planning Division staff are supportive of the proposal as the area has adopted the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018), which includes a recommendation for mixed-use and higher-density residential development along primary corridors with access to transit. Additionally, Staff are supportive as the proposal includes additional bicycle parking to mitigate the reduction in parking spaces, additional landscaping, and the inclusion of a sidewalk along South Hamilton Road, consistent with C2P2 Design Guidelines. A concurrent Council Variance (Ordinance #2552-2022; CV22-051) has been filed to reduce the number of required parking spaces, dumpster area requirements, and perimeter yard requirements.
