RESOLUTION - Approving an amendment to the Main Street Corridor Land Use and Development Plan for an approximately two acre area located generally located on the east half of the block bounded by W. 39th Terrace on the north, W. 40th Street on the south, Broadway on the west and Central Street on the east from single family and commercial to medium density residential. (581-S-7)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION"
City Planning and Development addressed the Committee. The applicant is requesting approval of a PIEA (Planned Industrial Expansion Authority) General Development Plan to obtain tax incentives for future development on the block. PIEA plans must be in conformance with the City’s adopted land use plans. The proposed multifamily use on the east half of the block requires amending both the Westport Planning Area Plan and the Main Street Corridor Land Use Plan to recommend multifamily uses. The UR rezoning request will approve a preliminary development plan.    The 3.5 acre block that comprises the plan area is bounded by W 39thTerrace on the north, a two–way, two lane street. Central Street is a one-way southbound residential street abutting the east side of the block in 40 feet of right of way. Broadway at this location is a four lane facility with center turn lane, and is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Parks and Recreation. W 39th Street, Central Street and Broadway are mostly constructed with curb, gutter sidewalks and streetlights. W 40th Street abuts the south side of the block. Although a named street, it functions more as a one-way westbound alley in 15 feet of right of way, with buildings directly abutting the right of way on its east half. A 500+ foot north south alley was originally platted through the center of the block; all but the northerly 135 feet has been vacated. A fence has been constructed across the public alley about 50 feet south of W 39th Street.   The Broadway frontage of the block consists of six single-story commercial buildings containing a short-term lender, medical clinic, cafes, general office and vacant spaces. A driveway from Broadway in the center of the block accesses an existing parking lot serving the adjacent building. Additional surface parking in the rear of the buildings is accessed from a second driveway further south along Broadway, the public alley, and a gated entrance along Central Street. A storage area and loading dock for the southernmost building is accessed from W 40th Street. All the commercial buildings along Broadway are in B3-2 zoning. The northernmost of the buildings has a roof-mounted billboard.   Along the Central Street frontage, the former XO Club is located directly adjacent W 40th Street. The now-vacant building is located in B3-2 zoning. The balance of the Central Street frontage is in R-1.5 zoning. The middle portion of the frontage is largely developed with surface parking, approved as an R-P (automobile parking) in the 1970’s. R-P zoning converted to R-1.5 zoning with the adoption of the new development code (Chapter 88). Use of that area for commercial parking is a non-conforming use. At the northeast corner of the block, two single-family houses (3926 Central Street and 3932 Central Street) are separated by an undeveloped lot owned by the northerly of the houses. The PIEA plan offers the standard “353” abatement of an initial period of 10 years in which 100% of property taxes are abated, followed by 15 years in which property taxes are levied on 50% of the assessed value of the property. PILOTS (payments in lieu of taxes) are required to be paid by the developer in the first 10 years, so that the revenues to the various taxing jurisdiction are not reduced below the amount paid prior to the abatement period. Note that, at the time of individual project approval by the PIEA Board, a financial analysis is required that may find less than the standard 10/15 abatement is justified.
