Only residents, guests and of course city, emergency and utility services will be allowed onto the property.”

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 applicant proposes rezoning the subject property from District M1-5 to UR and approval of a preliminary development plan for 314 residential units in two u-shaped buildings. The plan proposes vacating Delaware St north of 2nd to the north property line of the site in order to accommodate the proposed development. One building will be located east of the vacated Delaware Street while the other will be located west of the vacated street. Common space for tenants will be located within a courtyard between the two buildings and on the building’s rooftop. Green space will surround the east and west sides of the building as well as a small potion north of the east building. According to the plan, a total of 508 resident parking spaces are proposed within a two-level garage located below the building. The garage is proposed to be accessed from the east via a new drive located immediately east of the easternmost of the two buildings. An access easement with a grass paver access lane will extend northward from the garage entrance around the north side of the building connecting with Delaware St north of the subject property. This easement is intended to permit access to the Town of Kansas Site and the railroad north of the property and to permit fire truck access to the north side of the buildings. Due to the urban context, landscaping primarily consists of street trees along Second St with additional trees in the green space to the east, west and north. The plans also propose shrubs between the building and sidewalk. The plan proposes connecting Second St westward from its intersection with Delaware St to Wyandotte St by dedicating right-of-way for the street and building it to city public street standards. Angled parking is proposed along the north side and parallel parking along the south side of this portion of the street. The parking is intended for prospective tenants. Sidewalks are proposed along both sides of the new street to connect to existing sidewalks east of Delaware St and west of the subject property.
