Presentation and VOTE  500 East Columbus Street

Presentation and VOTE 466 East Blenkner & 568 Lathrop (City Staff Report)






Notes from City Staff

-It will not be acceptable for the aisle in the southeast quadrant of this site to be shared between private property and the public right-of-way. Within this area, additional right-of-way dedication would need to occur to ensure that this entire area is within the public right-of-way or, alternatively, a request to acquire the right-of-way of Ball Alley (aka Blenkner St.) adjacent to this site could be initiated. -Coordination with the roadway improvements per 3242-E along the frontages of this site may be necessary. -Daniel Moorhead is the contact (614-724-0589).

The South Side Plan recommends Neighborhood Commercial for this site. Staff recognizes that mixed use development is appropriate for this location based on the fact that Livingston Avenue is a primary corridor and that the existing C-4 commercial zoning district allows for vertical mixed uses. Staff notes that the Neighborhood Mixed Use recommendation at the corner of Parsons and Livingston has a recommended density of 45 units per acre, while the proposed development would have a density of 88 units per acre. The South Side Plan recommends that building heights be compatible and that taller buildings include changes of wall plane in order to provide relief. The plan also recommends that front elevations include at least 50 percent glass windows at street level, and that elements that enhance pedestrian activity are encouraged. Additionally the South Side Area Commission has chosen to early adopt the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines, which includes additional design related guidance related to height, site layout, building elevations, and other aspects of the proposal. Planning is generally supportive of mixed use at this location but requests a meeting with the applicant to discuss revisions to the site plan and building elevations that would better reflect the guidance found in the South Side Plan and the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines.

Healthy Places does not support the requested variance to allow ground floor, street-fronting parking spaces along the Livingston Avenue frontage.
