The Applicants, Solstice on the Park, LLC, Windermere House, LLC and 5528 S. Cornell Avenue Owner, LLC, propose to amend Planned Development #282 to allow Solstice on the Park, LLC, to construct a 299! mixed use building with 250 dwelling units and parking to beiocated at 1604-1624 East 56th Street/5528-32 South Cornell Avenue and referred to as Subarea B.
BACKGROUND
Residential Business Planned Development #282 (PD #282) was first enacted in 1982 and included the existing Windermere 13-stbry residential and commercial building located at

|1010|
FINAL.

approximately 1664 E. 56 Street and a vacant site directly to the west at approximately 1604 E. 56th Street that was used as parking. PD #282 was substantially amended in 2008 to include an additional 3-story residential building located at approximately 5528 South Cornell Avenue and to accommodate a 299' residential tower with 150 dwelling units and accessory parking to be located on the existing parking lot at approximately 1604 E. 56th Street and known as Solstice on the Park (Solstice). The original underlying zoning for PD #282 was R6 and R7 which translates into the current zoning designations of RM6 and RM6.5.

The proposed 2016 Amendment to PD #282 makes changes to the site plan, dwelling unit and parking count and other minor changes to the 2008 version ofthe Solstice on the Park project.

SITE AND AREA DESCRIPTION
The subject site is officially located within the eastern section of the Hyde Park Community Area along East 56th Street, across the street from Jackson Park. PD #282 includes approximately 120,950 square feet of net site area and is irregularly shaped. It is bounded generally;by:Hyde Park Boulevard to the east, East 56th Street on the south and a private drive/public alley to the west which forms the boundary with Bret Harte Elementary School. To the north, it is bounded by a,public alley located between Hyde Park Boulevard and S. Cornell Avenue on the eastern half of the site while on the western half of the site it is bounded by private residential property north of 5528 S. Cornell Avenue.

As stated, PD #282 includes two existing residential buildings. The Windermere House is a 1920's 13-story courtyard^style apartment building with approximately 220 dwelling units and ground floor commercial uses (Subarea A). The building at 5528 S. Cornell Avenue is a 53 unit, 3-story residential building (Subarea C). The Solstice project is planned to be located on the current parking lot site located at 1604 East 56^ Street (Subarea B).

The area surrounding the site is generally zoned :RM-5 (Residential Multi-Unit District), RM-6.5 (Residential Multi-Unit District) and POS-1 (Parks and Open Space District). Area land uses include other high rise residential buildings, smaller-scaled multi-family residential buildings and Bret Harte Elementary School. As stated, the site is across the street from Jackson Park, which is a large multi-acre regional park on the South Side of Chicago. Higher density residential buildings located along East 56th Street help to frame Jackson Park.

The subject site is very well served by existing public transit resources. In addition to the Chicago Transit Authority's nearby #15 (Jeffrey Local) bus and #28 (Stony Island) bus, the 55th Street Metra Electric Line Station is approximately 350 feet southwest of the subject site.

As stated, the site is located within the Private Use Zone ofthe Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection District. The site is not located within a Chicago Landmark District, and neither of the two existing buildings within the planned development are Chicago Landmarks. The property is also not located within a Tax Increment Financing District.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Solstice project is being constructed on a 52,503 square foot site bounded by S. Cornell Avenue, E. 56th Street, a private drive on the west adjacent to Bret Harte Elementary School and a public alley to the north. As stated, the Solstice project will be Subarea B in the planned development. The project consists ofthe construction of a 27-storymixed use building that will include approximately 250 dwelling units, 316 accessory parking spaces and additional ground floor commercial space.

No physical changes are contemplated at this time to the'existing Windermere House (Subarea A)tesidentiai/ground floor commercialibuilding (220/dwelling units) or the 5528 S. Cornell (Subarea C) residential building (53 dwelling units).

DESIGN/LANDSCAPING
The Solstice project consists of a proposed tower on the southern; portion of Subarea B
and a connected part two-stbry/part three-story garage on the northern portion of the site.
The tower will -be* setback from East 56fh Street approximately 28' to accommodateithe
drop-off area and garage access. Ah additional setback and 'landscaped , area will be
located mid-block on S. Cornell Avenue at the pedestrian access to the garage and
s6cbndary-access tb'the^ tower in addition to a 9' setback along all of S. Cornell Avenue.
The 'first1 floor'of the tower ;(will! include lobby space and' a .tsmall... amount, of
commercial/amehity'spaeeiL . ;. : -v.

Floors 2 thru 26 of the tower c'dritain the residential units .and are approximately. 14,000
square feet each: Various units bn the'south'side of the building, which overlooks Jackson
Pa'rk"will!;eontaih •terra'ces-drbai'cohies-. . ¦¦!

The tower itself jis -ah innovative* design that is' positioned, to maximize natural: cooling
through the.angles cut into the south-facing (Jackson Park) facade. Materials include
glass;' glasWguardrail'ahd^ The parking garage^cladding is proposed to'be
a modular masonry screen which is designed to blend in with the surrounding masonry residentiarbuilding's iri the neighborhood. The maximum height of the tower will be 299'.

-"The^TbjfeefwiirfUir^c^ along S. Corneli and East 56th-Street.

ACCESS/CIRCULATION
The Solstice project will accbnhmbdate 316 parking spaces in a part two/part thr.ee^level structurecl 'parking system located to the north of, and connected to, the proposed tower. The parking garage will be partially located1 below grade as-well. Access to'the garage will be achieved via East 56th Street and the public alley located between Subarea B and Subarea C. A vehicular drop-off drive area will be located directly in front of the proposed tower and will also be accessed via 56th Street. The drop-off drive area will feed into the garage as well. Parking will primarily serve the residents of;Solstice and the two existing buildings in the planned development, but six spaces will be reserved for the adjacent Bret Harte Elementary School (by easement) and up4o 45% of the spaces will be available for

|1010|
FINAL

lease to non-occupants in accordance with Section 17-10-0503 ofthe Chicago Zoning Ordinance.

The primary pedestrian access point to the building will be via East 56lh Street, while secondary access will be via S. Cornell Avenue. Pedestrian access to the garage will also be available from S. Cornell Avenue. Bicycle storage for 150 bikes will be provided in the lower level of the Solstice building.

Two 10' x 25' loading berths will serve the Solstice building. One will be accessed via East 56lh Street, and the other via the public alley to the north.

SUSTAINABILITY
The Applicant will provide approximately 6,600 square feet of green roof and will achieve either LEED, Green Globes or Energy Star certification for the Solstice project. The project will also comply with the Storm Water Management Ordinance, implementing best practices in all storm water management. The Green Roof Plan included as an exhibit to this report highlights the location of the green roof on the building.

BULK/USE/DENSITY -
This 2016 Amendment to PD #282 will establish an overall FAR (Floor Area Ratio) cap for the project at 6.5 and FAR limits for each Subarea as follows: 6.41 in Subarea A (per existing conditions); 7.0 in Subarea B; and: 1.82 in Subarea C (per existing conditions). The FAR caps to be established by;the 2016 Amendment for the overall planned development and for Subarea B will be lower than what is allowed .by the current plan of development standards (6.6 FAR for the overall planned development, and 8.0 FAR for Subarea B). :

Uses for the project will include residential, accessory parking, limited ground floor non­residential (commercial) and accessory^uses. ;

A total of 523 dwelling units will be permitted within this planned development. This includes the proposed 250 units within Solstice as well as the existing 273 units located in Subareas A and C. The Minimum Lot Area for the planned development overall will be 231 square feet, which is slightly less than the minimum under the Chicago Zoning Code of 234. Approximately '30% of the units over the entire planned' development will be efficiencies,-which is less than the 40% maximum under the Chicago Zoning Code.

RECOMMENDATION
The Department of Planning and Development has reviewed the proposed 2016 Amendment to PD #282 and the materials submitted by the Applicant and compared this proposal to existing development in the community. The area around this project consists generally of high-rise and other multi-family residential uses, and the proposal represents an opportunity to construct a compatible residential/mixed use development project along East 56th Street in Chicago's Hyde Park Community Area.

Based on that analysis, the Department of Planning and Development has concluded that

|1010|
FINAL

this proposal is appropriate for this site and supports this development for the following reasons:

1. The project meets the purpose and criteria set forth in Chapter 17-8 of the Zoning Ordinance and its adoption would not have any adverse impact on the public's health, safety or welfare. Specifically, this project meets the following provisions of Chapter 17-8:

a. Promotes pedestrian interest, safety and comfort by creating safe and
attractive walkways and pedestrian routes and by emphasizing building
entries through architecture and design (per 17-8-0905-A), as evidenced by
the project's incorporation of a significant building entrance;, ._ ,
b. Reinforcesdesirable urban features found'within the surrounding area,-such
• as siting-patterns, massing arrangements and streetscapecharacteristics (per
17-8-0906-A), as evidenced.by.the compatibility of the project's.mass and site design with the surrounding buildings in-the Hyde Park Community Area and adjacency to Jackson .'Park;
Provides adequate, inviting, usable and accessible open space for workers, visitors and residents, provides a sense of place-associated with the development and provides substantialilandscaping of the openrareas (per 1j7-8-0909-A), as evidenced by the incorporation of balconies,and terraces along •the: south (Jackson iPark) faeihg facade.of the tower;
Conserves non-renewable energy and scarce materials (per17r8-0908-A) as
evidenced by the project's goal of building certification and the, incorporation
of asgreen roof v ': ¦ ¦
Promotes the safe and efficient circulation of pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles (per 17-8-0904-A1) as evidenced by the project's site plan that provides-appropriate drop-off, vehicular, access and loading functions; and
. f. All sides and areas ofthe buildings ;that are. visible rto. the public are.treated with materials, finishes and architectural details that are of high-quality and appropriate for use on primary street-facing facade (17-8r0907-A-4), as : evidenced through: the material callouts in this report and> on;the elevations.

2~. The site7is consisteht w of the Metra" Station Typology Study iwhich
passed the Chicago Plan; Commission in 2014. The Metra Study, identifies the Metra Electric 55th Street Station as a "Major Activity Center" which is considered a major node of activity outside ofthe central area. The study further supports higher density housing near Major Activity Center stations. ¦¦¦¦¦¦

• 3. The public infrastructure facilities and city services will be adequate to serve the proposed development at the time of occupancy. The proposed project has been reviewed by the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities and the Department of Transportation and all requested changes have been made. Copies of this application have been circulated to other City departments and agencies ,and no comments have been received which have not been addressed in the application.



|1010|
i
FINAL

4. The project will comply with the requirements for access in case of fire and other emergencies.

Based on the foregoing, it is the recommendation of the Department of Planning and Development that this application for a Residential Business Planned Development be approved and that the recommendation to the City Council Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards be "Passage Recommended".

The Department of Planning and Development has reviewed the project materials submitted by the Applicant with regards to the Policies and Purposes ofthe Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance and has concluded that the proposed development would be in compliance with the applicable Policies ofthe Lakefront Plan of Chicago and the Purposes of the Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance, as they apply to development in the Private Use Zone, specifically:
Policy No. 10 (Ensure a harmonious relationship between lakeshore parks and community edges but in no instance allow private development east of Lake Shore Drive): The proposal consists of an appropriate residential infill project that will reinforce the multi-unit residential district that exists in this area of the City and minimally impact the lakefront park system; and,
Policy No. 14 (Coordinate all public and private development within the water, park and community zones): This site is located within the Private-Use Zone, and the development has been coordinated with the appropriate City departments and community to minimize fhe impact of construction and to ensure it remains in context with the surrounding neighborhood.

With respect to the Policies not. enumerated here, the. Department of Planning and Development has determined that.they are either not applicable to development in the Private Use Zone or that the proposed project will not have a detrimental effect on the Lake Michigan shoreline or any wildlife habitats therein. This is because the proposed project is separated from the shoreline, does not reduce existing open space or wildlife habitat and does not interfere with existing access to, or use of, the lake and its parks.

Based on the foregoing, it is the recommendation of the Department of Planning and Development that this development application, being in conformance with the provisions ofthe Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance, be approved, subject to compliance with the exhibits including site and Landscape Plans and elevation drawings dated February 18, 2016 and presented before you today.
