Resolution to Approve 1101 South University Site Plan, 1101 South University (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 0 Nays)


Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a three-story 4,748 square foot addition containing 3 residential units and 16 bedrooms.    


Petition Summary:


                     The Site Plan proposes the construction of a three-story addition for residential use over the existing 2 story building containing retail/office use. The new addition will contain three residential units with a total of 16 bedrooms.


                     After Planning Commission action, the petitioner removed approximately 50 square feet from the fifth floor to reduce the total size of the building and the corresponding FAR. With the reduction in floor area, residential premiums for the additional FAR above 400% were not required. This eliminated the requirement for one off-street vehicle parking space.


                     The site is located within the special parking (DDA) district and does not require any vehicle parking. Bicycle parking will be provided in lockers on the adjacent site.


The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of April 17, 2018, recommended approval of this request.
