Rezoning an area of approximately 15 acres generally located on the east side of N. Ambassador Drive between N.W. Old Tiffany Springs Road on the north and N.W. 88th Street on the south from District R-2.5 to District MPD, and approving a development plan that serves as a preliminary plat for skilled nursing, independent living, retail and office uses. (6029-MPD-30)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
The project proposes a three phase plan including the following: Phase 1: A 120 unit, one story, 90,000 SF Skilled Nursing Facility, Phase 2: A 220 unit, four story, 280,000 SF Independent/Assisted Living Facility, and Phase 3: Four pad sites including Retail, Medical Office and Restaurant uses. The first phase is the Skilled Nursing Facility. Each phase is able to stand alone with regards to vehicular access therefore phasing is not important from an access standpoint. The Skilled Nursing Facility is located on the north side of the development, at the southeast corner of NW Old Tiffany Springs Road and N Ambassador Drive. The plan shows a single story 90,000 SF irregularly shaped facility with 120 units. The setback from NW Old Tiffany Springs Road is 50 feet and is to be placed within a tract, to allow for the future ATA Special Purpose Rapid Transit Corridor. The structure is centrally located with a 50 foot setback from the north and a 30 foot setback from N Ambassador Drive on the west.

Vacating right-of-way generally located at N.W. Tullison Road and Hickory, south of N.W. Tullison Road and west of Highway 169; retaining an easement; and directing the City Clerk to record certain documents. (1707-V)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
The applicant, Briarcliff Development Company, is proposing the vacation of a portion of right-of-way immediately south of NW Tullison Road. The right-of-way to be vacated was recently under the control of MoDOT – the property was transferred to the City earlier this year. The property to be vacated follows the alignment of NW Tullison Road on the north and the immediately adjacent property line to the south. The right-of-way to be vacated is undeveloped green space. The property owner wishes to vacate this property in order to build a retaining wall. The property is located in an approved UR district. The approved development plan for this site shows two multi-family residential structures and a parking lot. The vacation would also create more developable space for the continuation of the Briarcliff multi-family housing development on the site. NW Tullison Road provides access to the Waterwell Athletic Complex which is immediately north of the railroad and Missouri River. NW Tullison Road moves from being a street to an access drive at the entrance of the park. The vacation of this right-of-way would prevent future widening of NW Tullison Road. It is not anticipated that the park will generate enough use to justify increasing capacity on NW Tullison Road. The vacation of this right-of-way will not affect traffic circulation or access availability within the block or Kansas City as a whole. The applicant has received the required property owner and utility consents to vacate the right-of-way. AT&T and KCMO Water Services have facilities in the right-of-way and require an easement and the protection of existing facilities. The Fire Department has a fire hydrant in the right-of-way that must remain as well.

Rezoning a 1.2 acre tract of land generally located west of Kenwood Ave between E. 22nd Street and E. 23rd Street from District R-0.5 to District DC, and approving a development plan to allow construction of a 187,000 square foot administrative office building for Children’s Mercy Hospital. (14546-P & 14546-P-1).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Children’s Mercy Hospital, in implementing its master plan, is proposing the construction of an 187,450 sq. ft. building to house administrative offices and meeting space for the hospital’s staff. The proposed use is classified as an administrative, professional or general office use in the zoning and development code. The offices are intended as administrative offices for hospital staff only – not medical offices open to the public. The subject property is zoned R-0.5 (Residential 0.5) which permits administrative office uses by special use permit only. The property is within the Greater Downtown Area Plan, which recommends DC (Downtown Core) zoning for much of the hospital hill/crown center area including the subject property. Hospital uses are not permitted in R-0.5, but are permitted in DC. Given the recommendations of GDAP and the hospital’s affiliation with the proposed building and their master plan for additional development to the west, staff recommended that the applicant rezone to DC. The applicant has thus submitted an application for rezoning. The size of the building requires approval of a development plan in District DC; therefore the applicant is also seeking approval of a development plan. The building is proposed to consist of four stories of offices on top of a three level garage with a total height of 98 ft when measured along the north façade adjacent to 22nd St. The building will be slightly shorter along Kenwood and 23rd St due to the change in grade across the site. This change will allow the garage to be designed without internal ramps with all three garage levels accessed from different streets. According to the proposed plans, the bottom level of the garage will be accessed from 22nd St only, the middle level from Kenwood only, and the top level from 23rd St only. The plans show a median cut in 22nd St just west of Kenwood Ave to allow full access into the northern entrance of the garage. Public Works staff has expressed the distance between this median cut and Kenwood Ave is too close and has recommended the median cut be omitted from the plans, thereby making this garage entrance right-in/right-out. A conceptual landscape plan has been provided showing landscaping in the setbacks along all sides of the building. The applicant indicates they intend to meet the landscaping requirements of Section 88-425 of the zoning and development code and should provide a plan which illustrates such prior to City Council. This includes street trees along each street frontage and screening along the north side of the garage. The garage is proposed to be constructed of a cream-colored precast concrete with brick details. The office-portion of the building is proposed to be constructed of a combination of red brick, and clear, green and spandrel glass. The red brick, green and spandrel glasses, and cream colored precast concrete are proposed to match the color of similar materials used in the existing hospital buildings. The east and west building elevations contain substantially more brick while the south and north elevations contain very little (only at the top of the building). Additionally, the precast concrete material extends the height of the building on both the south and north elevations. All three levels of the garage will be visible from the north, west, and east. Only the top level of the garage will be visible from the south.
