WHEREAS, the Council desires to limit the height of any buildings built on the block bounded by 48th Street, Belleview Avenue, Ward Parkway, and Roanoke Parkway (hereinafter the "Property") to no more than 10 stories on the Roanoke Parkway frontage and approximately 45 feet on the Belleview Avenue frontage in order to ensure the proper massing and scale of buildings relative to the existing buildings; and

 

WHEREAS, in order to establish Belleview Avenue as the definite western edge of the Plaza's office and retail development, the Council desires to designate the block bounded by 48th Street, Belleview Avenue, Roanoke Parkway and Ward Parkway as "limited redevelopment within specific site guidelines" and desires to encourage reasonable access to the Property from both Belleview Avenue and Roanoke Parkway. Furthermore, the Council desires to add additional guidelines to Planning Area C which will preserve and protect the residential neighborhoods west of Belleview Avenue as identified in the attached Plaza Urban Design and Development Plan; and

 

WHEREAS, legal notice of the public hearing before the City Plan Commission was published in conformity with state and local laws; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Plan Commission did hold public hearings and did recommend denial on November 18, 1996, of the amendment to the Plaza Urban Design and Development Plan and to the land uses, guidelines and standards contained in said amendment; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
