Here’s what I’ve come across in City filings as of 9/15/11 (click links to read staff reports on these cases):
1. MDC Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – a developer requests rezoning of land at 1450 N Pennsylvania (former Payton Wells body shop) for a multifamily residential project. No details are provided at this time. This site is within the Regional Center overlay district, and as such, any project will receive a thorough review by the Regional Center Hearing Examiner.
2. MDC Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – CityWay (previously North of South) developers want to vacate portions of Louisiana and Alabama. This is a pretty standard request when developers build large multi-block projects with small streets interior to the project.
3. MDC Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – request to rezone 117 N East from I-3-U to CBD-2. Little detail is provided here and this property also lies within the Regional Center overlay district. The staff report notes that this is one of the last properties in that area with an industrial zoning designation and the CBD-2 designation brings it in line with surrounding properties and the Regional Center 2020 land use recommendation.
4. MDC Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – request to rezone 531 Virginia from C-3C to CBD-S. This is the site of the former BMV location on Virginia Ave. and developers are proposing to build a residential and commercial project. The case will be continued to the next hearing on 9/29/11 and the staff report at that time will hopefully contain more information.
5. Regional Center Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – Regional Center approval is requested for renovation of the Campus Apartments complex owned by Van Rooy Properties (720 W 10th St). This complex is immediately adjacent along 10th St. to the new Buckingham multi-use project The Avenue. Van Rooy was the losing bidder for the land where that complex is being built — their proposal would have used that land as well as the Campus Apartments land for an apartment project. Having failed in that bid, Van Rooy appears to be going the renovation route with their existing property. The project includes an extensive expansion of parking spaces as shown in the siteplan below.
6. Regional Center Hearing Examiner 9/15/11 – Regional Center approval is requested for a Jack in the Box restaurant at 1521 N Meridian St. Like the Board of Zoning Appeals case profiled in the previous Quick Hits, this case is also continued to the next hearing on 10/13/11.
