Planned Development & Design Review

Maven Lofts

Petition Number: PLNPCM2020-00721 & PLNPCM2020-00722

Zoning District: CC (Commercial Corridor)

City Council District: 5, Represented by Darin Mano

Joe Jacoby, representing Jacoby Architects, has submitted applications to the city for Design Review and a Planned Development to construct an addition that would create 57 new residential units located at 156 E 900 South

The proposal is for a 4-story building with an overall height of 45’. The proposed structure will be located roughly on the same footprint as the existing building.

The applicant is requesting Design Review approval to allow for an additional 15 FT of building height, for a total building height of approximately 45 FT. Requests for an additional floor in the CC (Commercial Corridor) zone require increased landscaping over and above that which is normally required for landscape yards and landscape buffer yards. In order to utilize the ground floor of the existing building in the project, the applicant is requesting a Planned Development to allow the rooftop garden areas to count toward this additional landscaping requirement. The existing building currently does not have any landscaping.

Through the Planned Development process, the applicant is also requesting to decrease the front, rear, and corner side yard setbacks for the second, third, and fourth stories of the building. The exterior wall of the proposed upper stories is slightly stepped back from the exterior wall of the existing building, which is located right at the property line. The CC zoning district requires a front and corner side yard setback of 15’, a rear yard setback of 10’, and a maximum building height of 30’.

Project Location

Located at approximately 156 E 900 South.
