NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
This ordinance will approve a development plan in District B4-5 on an approximately 0.53 acre tract of land generally located at the northeast corner of W. 47th Street and Jefferson Street (addressed as 612 W. 47th Street) for the redevelopment of the Jack Henry Building. This will grant a deviation to the maximum building height limitations of the Plaza Bowl Overlay Zoning District for the construction of the new tower element at the southwest corner of the building. Chris Hughey, City Planning, provided a presentation to this ordinance. The Jack Henry building is an existing 5 story commercial mixed use building consisting of the first 3 floors of commercial and office spaces and the upper 2 floors as part of the integrated parking garage. Presently the building is not occupied, but has been previously home to retail, office, medical office and restaurant uses. The building incorporates Spanish architectural themes with blonde and red brick, red tile roof elements, blue, and white and red accent tile features. The proposed renovations include new tenant spaces, façade changes to include more modern architectural elements, a more integrated pedestrian access and communal space with a new tower feature at the southwest corner of the building. The requested deviations include building height. The Plaza Bowl Overlay District stipulates a building height of a minimum 45 feet and a maximum 65 feet. With the proposed renovations to the Jack Henry building, the applicant is proposing a tower feature at the southwest corner of the building with a maximum height of 74 feet; or a requested maximum building height deviation in the amount of 9 feet. The Plaza Bowl Overlay District does not take into account this exception in the base zoning code and further stipulates deviations to the building heights can only be granted by the City Council through the Development Plan process. The existing tower feature of the southeast corner of the building is approximately 93 feet in overall height measured from grade to the pinnacle of the pyramid hip roof. As part of the renovations the applicant will be reducing the majority of the overall height of the façade between the two tower features from 66 feet to 61 feet along W 47th street. Patricia Jensen, Rouse Frets Law Firm, provided a presentation to this ordinance as well. A digital copy of both presentations can be found on file in the City Clerk’s Office.
