Deleting an approved Chapter 80 preliminary development plan and rezoning an 18-acre tract of land generally located east of S. Holmes Road and north of Interstate 435 from Districts R-0.5 and R-1.5 to District O-3. (7443-P-25).

Rezoning a 1 acre tract of land generally located at 1004 Wyandotte Street from District DC-15 to District UR, and approving a preliminary development plan for construction of a parking garage. (14597-UR)


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 proposed plan depicts demolition of the existing three-level garage and replacement with a new 300-space, five-level garage to serve DST associates working in the area, but also to provide public parking. Due to the increased height, the new garage will provide parking for more vehicles than the existing garage, yet have a smaller footprint providing space for a landscape buffer along both 10th and Wyandotte St frontages. The garage will have only one vehicular entrance from Wyandotte, just south of 10th. The main pedestrian entrance will be at the garage’s northeast corner near the intersection of 10th and Wyandotte. The garage is proposed to be constructed of pre-cast concrete panel walls, exposed on the west and south facades with the north and east facades screened with an aluminum screen and glass surrounding stairs at the northeast and northwest corners. The concrete panels will feature 2 inch decorative relief around 4 inch holes throughout. Some of these features will include colored ceramic artwork by a local artist. This will occur where the concrete is exposed at the ground level of the east and north facades and along the south façade. The aluminum screen will be 40% open for ventilation, meaning that 60% of the surface area is opaque in order to screen the upper levels of the garage and the parking within. The proposed landscaping on the north and east sides consists of trees, shrubs and groundcover, including retaining and/or replacing (as needed) street trees along 10th St. The plan does not show street trees along Wyandotte. The plan does depict a small area in the western portion of the property to remain undeveloped and designed as an outdoor space for the adjacent Crossroads Academy School, whose building immediately abuts it to the west.

Rezoning a 1 acre tract of land generally located at 1640 Baltimore Avenue, from District DX-15 to District UR, and approving a preliminary development plan for the reuse of an existing structure. (14600-UR).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. It was noted that this is a companion to Committee Substitute for Ordinance 080729. The developer is seeking tax increment financing for the project and as a result has submitted an application for rezoning to UR along with the proposed preliminary development plan. The proposed plan depicts extensive renovation of the existing building with the potential addition of a fourth story, and the removal of the parking lot to the north and replacing it with a community park, privately owned and maintained by the property owner. The upper levels of the renovated building are intended to be offices while the ground level is intended for office and/or retail uses, though the plan proposes that any use allowed in District DX-15 (current zoning) would be allowed within the building. The park is to be open to the public but owned and maintained by the property owner to serve as an amenity to the neighborhood. The plan depicts it will consist of a mixture of green spaces, planting areas, a greenhouse and paved plaza areas with shaded seating. Pedestrian lighting will be provided throughout. Underground water retention is proposed under the park as well.

Vacating E. 51st Terrace between Mersington Avenue to the west and Myrtle Avenue to the east; retaining a utility easement; and directing the City Clerk to record certain documents. (1706-V).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Ashley Winchell, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The vacation of this unconstructed right-of-way will prevent the future connection of the property to the west. The Cleveland Heights Senior Apartment project will access Mersington Avenue from the south using E 52nd Street which is currently unconstructed. If a northern connection is desired in the future the developer will be required to either dedicate right-of-way to the City or will be required to establish a private drive. As this right-of-way is unconstructed, the proposed vacation will not affect current traffic circulation or access availability to citizens within the block or Kansas City as a whole. The applicant has received the required consents and utility comment sheets to vacate the right-of-way. Both KCMO Water Services and ATT have identified existing utilities in the right-of-way but waive any objections subject to retention of an easement and that any existing facilities are protected.
