Approving the Air World PIEA General Development Plan on about 10 acres generally located at 10920 N.W. Ambassador Drive and 11020 N.W. Ambassador Drive, and declaring the area a blighted and insanitary area in need of redevelopment and rehabilitation pursuant to the Missouri Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (PIEA) Law 100.300-100.620. (735-S)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The applicant has proposed to either renovate the northern of the two buildings for office/educational institution use and renovate or replace the south building with a hotel. A second hotel (new construction) is contemplated as a later phase in the southern portion of the plan area. The remainder of the site will remain largely as it exists with minor modifications to the parking area to accommodate the new uses and buildings. The general development plan recommends rezoning to District UR, which staff believes is necessary given the extensive site area, its visible and prominent location, and the proposed new construction.

RESOLUTION - Approving the execution of a contract to sell and transfer property previously declared as surplus located at 2000 Vine Street by the City of Kansas City, Missouri to 2000 Vine Street, LLC, for consideration in the amount of $20,000.00.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION"
Venessa Williams, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The City has owned the property since 1872. The property was previously declared surplus in the fall of 2016. The property is within a 353 Plan area initially authorized by Ordinance No. 50555 on August 2, 1979, and a Contract was subsequently entered into by the City and Eighteenth and Vine Redevelopment Corporation dated August 29, 1979. Such Contract has gone through successive amendments, as has the 353 Plan. This parcel lies south of the right-of-way line of the Kansas City Terminal Railway Company, and is bounded on the East by the West line of Vine St., on the West by the East line of the Paseo, and is north of the north line of Whitehead Place subdivision [which lies North of E. 21st St.]. The structures on the property were declared dangerous in 2004, which declaration was reaffirmed in 2016. That re-evaluation of the property enabled more current condition information to be available against which to measure the adequacy of any proposal to purchase to renovate. The area is in need of revitalization and private ownership and investment in the property’s redevelopment would serve the City’s long term interest. Private investment would help support the City’s public investment in the 18th and Vine area.

RESOLUTION - Approving an amendment to the Line Creek Valley Area Plan for an area of approximately 4.29 acres generally located at the southwest corner of N.W. Barry Road and N. Pontiac Avenue by changing the recommended land use on the Future Land Use Map at this location from “residential medium density” to “residential high.” (686-S-4)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION"
Patty Noll, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Resolution. It was noted that this is a companion to Ordinance 170022. The developer proposed construction of a senior cooperative structure. Three levels within the 45 ft. high building would contain 52 units. Access to the property is via a driveway to be extended from N. Pontiac Avenue. A second curb cut off N. Pontiac Avenue, to be located south of the building will enable fire department access to rear of the structure. The existing curb cut and drive offN.W. Barry Road that once served a single family home on the property will be removed. The plan shows construction of a sidewalk extending from N. Pontiac Avenue to the front of the building. Sidewalks exist on N.W. Barry Road. The developer is required to dedicate additional right of way for N. Pontiac Avenue (approximately five ft., to result in a tot.al of 50 ft. of right of way) and improve the west half of N.Pontiac along the property's frontage. This will involve construction of sidewalks and curb and gutter. A tot.al of 99 parking spaces would be provided. A surface lot, set back 150 ft. from the Barry Road right of way line, provides 3 7 spaces. Parking under the building provides an additional 62 spaces. Access to the parking garage is via a do·or located on the west side of the front (Barry Road frontage) of the structure. Bicycle parking is provided as required by code-10 short-term spaces upon a rack near the front of the building and 17 long-term spaces to be provided within the parking garage.)

Approving a development plan to allow a multi-unit residential development in District B4-5 (Heavy Business/Commercial) on about 1.5 acres generally located at 4600 Madison Avenue; and deleting said property from a previously approved development plan. (9326-P-11)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The plan proposed development of a 245-unit residential building and an integrated 322-space parking garage. The development is designed such that the residential portion wraps the garage except for the Levels 2 and 3 which will be visible from Madison Ave (Level 1 is located below Madison Ave street grade). Access to the garage from Madison Ave will be at the northeast corner of the site onto Level 3. A trash/loading zoning is proposed at Level 2 along Madison Ave. Along Roanoke Pkwy, the proposed building is five stories in height. Elsewhere (viewed from the south and along Madison Ave) the building is thirteen stories in height for a total building height of 130 feet to top of roof. The design of the building along Roanoke is similar to a townhome in appearance with building entrances for each of the ground floor units. The plan also proposed a drop off area with porte-cochere on the south side of the building with an entrance to the garage at this location. This area will be accessed from Roanoke. South of this where the property narrows toward the intersection of 47th, Roanoke and Madison is a pedestrian plaza area consisting of an outdoor patio, artwork/water features, seating, and a sidewalk constructed of decorative paving and landscaping connecting the building entrance and entry drive with the intersection.
