PURPOSE:  To rezone the properties known as 300 and 400 Oliver Hill Way from the M-1 Light Industrial District to the TOD-1 Transit Oriented Nodal District, and the property known as 510 Oliver Hill Way from the M-2 Heavy Industrial District to the TOD-1 Transit Oriented Nodal District.

 

REASON:  The applicant is requesting to rezone the property to the TOD-1 Transit Oriented Nodal District, which allows a greater range of housing types, uses, and densities than the current M-1 and M-2 Industrial Districts allow.

 

RECOMMENDATION:  In accordance with the requirements of the City Charter and the Zoning Ordinance, the City Planning Commission will review this request and make a recommendation to City Council. This item will be scheduled for consideration by the Commission at its May 3, 2021 meeting.

 

BACKGROUND:  The properties, together, consist of approximately 230,839 SF, or 5.30 acres of land. The properties are located in the Upper Shockoe Valley Neighborhood, along Oliver Hill Way, between Brown Street, East Marshall Street, and East Broad Street.

 

The City’s Richmond 300 Master Plan designates the properties as Destination Mixed Use.  Such areas are described as “key gateways featuring prominent destinations, such as retail, sports venues, and large employers, as well as housing and open space. Located at the convergence of several modes of transportation, including Pulse BRT or other planned transit improvements.”(p. 64)

 

Primary Uses: Retail/office/personal service, multi-family residential, cultural, and open space.

Secondary Uses: Institutional and government.

 

Currently, properties in the vicinity are zoned in the same M-1 and M-2 Industrial with some B-5 Central Business District zones directly to the East of the properties.

 

FISCAL IMPACT / COST:  The Department of Planning and Development Review does not anticipate any impact to the City’s budget for this or future fiscal years.

 

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:  Staff time for processing the request; preparation of draft ordinance; and publishing, mailing and posting of public notices.
