Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-042

APPLICANT: Joss Construction Group, LLC; c/o Rebecca J. Mott; Atty.; 411 East Town Street, 2nd floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit residential development.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval. The site is comprised of four undeveloped parcels in the ARLD, Apartment Residential District. The applicant is requesting a Council variance to construct three single-unit dwellings on three reconfigured lots. A variance is necessary because single-unit dwellings are not a permitted use in the ARLD district. The request includes variances to lot width, area district requirements, and side and rear yards. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends “higher density residential/mixed-use development” land uses at this location. Staff does not support the request because the overall site design is not consistent with the Near East Area Plan’s design guidelines, which discourages attached garages in front of dwelling units, and states that building setbacks should be similar to those of adjacent buildings. While staff supports the proposed use and the submitted building elevations, the site plan is considered incompatible with the established development pattern of the area and is therefore not supported. Staff will consider support for a site design that places buildings closer to the McAllister Avenue frontage, or driveways that provide rear access for vehicles.
