is hereby approved, subject to the following conditions:

 

1. That plans, revised as noted below, are submitted and accepted by the following staff prior to obtaining full building permits.

 

a.                   Work with staff to improve the pedestrian experience along 14th Street and on an adaptive reuse plan for future use of the garage in compliance with the City’s TOD policy and in the manner described in the staff report.

 

b.                  Work with staff to revise garage screening, submitting plans to show detail at various times of day.  

 

c.                   Show decorative and integrated lighting into the design pattern on the first-floor façade.

 

d.                  Include increased transparency on the south façade, adjacent to the commercial space.

 

e. Change glass blades from horizontal to vertical orientation. 

 

2.                     The developer shall submit an affidavit, completed by a landscape architect licensed in the State of Missouri, verifying that street trees have been installed in accordance with the approved street tree planting plan and are healthy prior to certificate of occupancy.

 

3.                     There is an approved Downtown Streetscape Plan. The applicant shall provide a streetscape plan, for review by Development Management, Land Development, Long Range Planning, and the Public Works Department, in compliance with the approved plan, prior to issuance of building permits.

 

4.                     All construction shall be in compliance of the applicable building codes which are in effect at the time of construction and shall be built under valid building permits issued by the City Planning and Development Department. (IFC-2018 § 102.4)

 

5.                     The expectation is the project will meet the fire flow requirements as set forth in Appendix B of the International Fire Code 2018. (IFC-2018 § 507.1)

 

6.                     The drawing must show that a building higher than 75 feet will have two separate fire service lines connected to water mains located in different streets.

 

7.                     Stormwater management facilities, including but not limited to detention basins and BMPs, shall be privately maintained and covered by maintenance covenant(s) or easement(s) that include provisions for private maintenance.

 

8.                     Prior to issuance of any construction permits within a "Combined Sewer Overflow" (CSO) district, the developer shall submit, for review and acceptance, a storm drainage study, sealed by a Missouri-licensed civil engineer, showing detention of the 1.5 inch rainfall depth over the entire disturbed area and release of said volume over a 40- to 72-hour period (unless infiltrated, evaporated, or used in some other manner) in addition to management of the rate and volume of stormwater runoff from the 10% and 1% storms per the latest adopted version of APWA 5600 standards in effect at the time of submission. The developer shall construct improvements necessary to reduce small storm discharges to the combined sewer system by simulating natural runoff conditions through metered release of the 1.5 inch detention volume and mitigate impacts from rate and volume of 10% and 1% storm runoff from the site.

 

9.                     The developer shall cause the area to be platted and processed in accordance with Chapter 88, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, by making application under said code for a Minor Subdivision and submitting and recording a Lot Consolidation Plat or replatting the property in accordance therewith.

 

10.                 The developer shall pay impact fees as required by Chapter 39 of the City’s Code of Ordinances, as required by the Land Development Division.

 

11.                 The developer shall submit construction plans in compliance with adopted standards for all improvements required by the traffic study approved by the Public Works Department, and shall secure permits for those improvements as required by the Land Development Division, prior to recording the plat.

 

12.                 The developer shall provide acceptable easement and secure permits to relocated sanitary sewers out from under proposed buildings and structures, while continuing to ensure individual service is provided to all proposed lots as required by the Land Development Division prior to recording the plat or issuance of a building permit, whichever occurs first.

 

13.                 The developer shall enter into a covenant agreement for the maintenance of any stormwater detention area tracts as required by the Land Development Division, prior to recording the plat.

 

14.                 The developer shall submit a storm drainage analysis from a Missouri-licensed civil engineer to the Land Development Division evaluating proposed improvements and impact to drainage conditions. Since this project is within a "Combined Sewer Overflow" (CSO) district, the project shall be designed to retain rainfall of 1.5 inch depth over the entire site to simulate natural runoff conditions and reduce small storm discharge to the combined sewer system and manage the 10-year storm and 100-year storm per currently adopted APWA standards. The analysis shall be submitted, and the developer shall secure permits to construct any improvements required by the Land Development Division prior to recording the plat.

 

15.                 The developer shall submit plans for grading, siltation, and erosion control to the Land Development Division for review and acceptance, and secure a site disturbance permit for any proposed disturbance area equal to one acre or more prior to beginning any construction activities.

 

16.                 After the City Plan Commission enters its disposition for the development plan, the developer shall not enter into any agreement that would encumber or otherwise have any impact on the proposed right-of-way dedications for the planned project without the prior written consent of the Land Development Division.

 

17.                 The developer shall submit an analysis to verify adequate capacity of the existing sewer system as required by the Land Development Division prior to issuance of a building permit to connect the private system to the public sewer main and depending on adequacy of the receiving system, make other improvements as may be required.

 

18.                 The developer shall grant a City approved pedestrian right-of-way easement, for the portions of the public sidewalks approved to be outside of the street right-of-way, to the City as required by the Land Development Division, prior to recording the plat.

 

 

19.                 The developer shall submit verification of vertical and horizontal sight distance for the drive connection to public right-of-way to the Land Development Division and make improvements to ensure local jurisdiction and/or minimum AASHTO adequate sight distance standards are met, prior to issuance of any certificate of occupancy.

 

20.                 The developer shall integrate into the existing streetlight system any relocated existing streetlights within the street right-of-way impacted by the new drive or approach entrances as required by the Land Development Division, and the relocated lights must comply with all adopted lighting standards.

 

A copy of said development plan is on file in the office of the City Clerk with this ordinance and is made a part hereof.

 

Section B. That the Council finds and declares that before taking any action on the proposed amendment hereinabove, all public notices and hearings required by law have been given and had.
