Rezoning requests to be considered

A busy night is ahead for the Charlotte City Council, which is scheduled to consider about three dozen rezoning proposals Monday. Those in the Neighbors of The City coverage area include:

NoDa

Noda at 27th Street LLC wants to rezone a block of land at North Davidson Street and East 27th Street.

The 3.6-acre parcel would be rezoned from industrial to a mixed-use development district. The developer wants to put up to 150 multi-family units, 45,000 square feet of office space and 41,000 square feet of retail on the site.

Staff say the proposal is inconsistent with the city's plan for the area, which calls for industrial use on the site. However, staff is recommending approval because the site is near similar developments and close to a proposed light rail station.



Issa Rafidi proposes rezoning property at Charles Avenue and North Davidson Streets from residential to multi-use development district. The proposal would convert a vacant house in NoDa into a catering business and eventually a specialty restaurant.

North

Vernell Belin proposes rezoning property near The Plaza and Milton Road from residential to urban residential.

The site, just under 1 acre, would be used for a classroom addition for Pee Wees Daycare. Staff is recommending approval, provided the developer makes certain modifications to the site plan.

South End

South End Silos proposes to rezone nearly 3 acres near Griffith Street and Fairwood Avenue, by the New Bern light rail station.

The land would be rezoned from industrial to a transit-oriented development, and proposed buildings would be a maximum of 200 feet high instead of 120 feet.

Staff recommends approval, provided the developer makes certain modifications to the site plan.

Dilworth

Two Land Group proposes rezoning a property at East Park Avenue and Cleveland Avenue from multi-family historic overlay to a mixed-use development district.

The rezoning would allow the uptown law firm Tin Fulton Walker & Owen to use the historic 6,000-square-foot Villalonga-Alexander House as an office. Staff recommends approval.

Central Charlotte

Mecklenburg County Real Estate Services wants to rezone about 2 acres at Kings Drive and Baxter Street from neighborhood business to mixed-use development district.

The property, the site of a former Exxon station, is in a floodplain and would be turned into a greenway. The rezoning would allow a “small park building” to be located on the site. Staff recommends approval.



William Turner proposes rezoning a property at Greenwood Cliff and Harding Place from office to mixed-use development district.

The 0.36-acre property would be rezoned to allow 1,196 square feet of office space and eight apartment units. Staff recommends approval, provided the developer makes certain modifications to the site plan.



Citiline Resortline Properties proposes rezoning 2.4 acres on West Victoria Avenue north of Fourth Street Extension.

The land would be rezoned from urban residential to mixed-use development district to build up to 500 residential units, a 400-room hotel, 60,000 square feet of commercial/restaurant space and 200,000 square feet of office space. Staff is recommending approval.



Asset Management I wants to rezone about 2 acres at the corner of Mint and Lincoln streets. The property would be changed from general industrial to a transit-oriented development district with the option for mixed-use.

The rezoning would allow for a mix of retail, office, restaurant and residential uses. Staff recommends approval provided certain plan modifications are met.



Charlotte Arena Operations wants to put more signs and banners on the Time Warner Cable Arena. Staff recommends approval provided certain outstanding issues are resolved.

SouthPark

Fairview Plaza Associates proposes rezoning about 2 acres on Fairview Road between Park South Drive and J.A. Jones Drive.

The proposed rezoning would allow one building to be demolished, the temporary parking removed, and a new building constructed. Staff recommends approval provided certain plan modifications are met.
