24. Amend the Zoning Map to Rezone 8.90 acres at 1147 E. President Street (PIN: 20013 01001) from B-C (Community Business) to RMF-2-35 (Residential Multifamily-35 units per net acre), Petition of Harold Yellin (Agent) on behalf of DPJ Residential (Petitioner), District 2 (File No. 20-002276-ZA)

Good Government

Harold Yellin, Agent for the petitioner DPJ Residential, is requesting an amendment to the Zoning Map to rezone approximately nine acres located at 1147 E. President Street (PIN: 20013 010001) from a B-C (Community Business) zoning classification to an RMF-2-35 (Multifamily Residential – 35 units per acre) zoning classification. The subject site is located south of President Street and east of the Wessels - Hitch Housing Authority residential development. It is west of the Bilbo Canal and has frontage on the unopened city right-of-way designated “Normandy Street.”

In 2017, the property was rezoned from the Light Industrial classification to the current Community Business classification under File No. 17-001310-ZA. That rezoning was adopted by the Mayor and Aldermen pursuant to a proposed hotel development of approximately 600 rooms across five hotel buildings. The hotel development never occurred.

The subject property is designated “Downtown Expansion” on the Future Land Use Map of the Tricentennial Comprehensive Plan. This designation is consistent with the proposed zoning, as dense residential development is recommended to exist within the Downtown Expansion areas.





The Planning Commission recommends approval of the petitioner’s request to rezone the subject site from the existing B-C (Community Business) zoning classification to an RMF-2-35 (Multifamily Residential – 35 units per acre) zoning classification based on the findings identified in the staff report.
