FINAL


The land-uses surrounding the subject site are generally single and multi-family residential with some commercial presence along East 63rd Street and institutional uses in the general neighborhood, namely two Chicago Public School facilities and the southern campus of the University of Chicago. The Woodlawn Tax Increment Finance District was recently amended to included institutional uses for this proposed site.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Applicant proposes to rezone the site from B3-2, Neighborhood Mixed-Use District to being included in a new planned development for a sixth (6th) grade to twelfth (12th) grade charter school. The applicant proposes to construct a three (3) story charter school and accessory parking. The project proposal includes classrooms and accessory educational uses and an athletic field.

The ground floor plans of the proposed school include a gymnasium, dining center, a college center and administrative offices. The second and third floors of the school will house primarily classrooms and labs for student use.

DESIGN
The three story building (50 feet in height) is designed in such a way as to fit appropriately to the scale of the immediate area. The materials for the proposed building provided are two types of masonry brick and accentuated by aluminum framed windows. The masonry brick will be placed in such a manner as to create a punched pattern through the building facades. The main entrance to the building is further defined with an aluminum framed entrance and fronts East 63rd Street. The main student entry will be on the south side of the building away from East 63rd Street

SUSTAIN ABILITY
The Applicant agrees to a minimum of "LEED" (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) basic certification. The Applicant also agrees to provide a vegetative ("green") roof system on a minimum of 25% of the net flat roof area and to provide an at-grade Volume Control BMP providing 597 cubic feet of water infiltration.

The at-grade Volume Control will be achieved by an at-grade open space and permeable pavers system in the courtyard area with a combination of underground tanks that percolate collected storm water into a CA7 open graded stone system below the fire lane to satisfy the City of Chicago's Sustainable Policy requirements.

FINAL

LANDSCAPING
The project will be in substantial compliance with the requirements of the City's Landscape Ordinance. The project at full completion will also provide an athletic field with a track on the southern portion of the site. The final landscape build-out for the site is to provide a total of 56 parkway trees. The project also calls for an additional 30 screening trees to be located at the parking lot, in front of the building set back (East 63rd Street) and around the courtyard.

ACCESS/CIRCULATION
South Greenwood Avenue shall provide access to the parking lot for staff with twenty-five (25) accessory parking spaces and a trash/loading berth for refuse collection and school deliveries. The school bus loading and drop-off, as well as parent drop-off, is designated on South University Avenue to the east of the building. Access in case of fire emergency purposes will be through a designated fire lane via curb-cut at South University Avenue and roll curb at East 63rd Street and parking lot off of South Greenwood Avenue.

BULK/USE/DENSITY
The Plan Development permits a maximum F.A.R of 1.0 and is also permitted underthe B3-2, Community Shopping District. The building will remain consistent in bulk with the surrounding area. The building is setback from all public rights-of-way and an additional landscape area from East Greenwood Avenue provides relief for the adjacent areas.

In terms of pre-existing uses located along East 63rd Street a large parcel currently zoned Planned Development No. 1182 permits educational and institutional uses. The proposed uses of the planned development include School, educational offices and administration offices; athletic field as accessory use to the primary school use, accessory parking and related and accessory uses.

RECOMMENDATION
The Department of Planning and Development has reviewed the project materials submitted by the Applicant and have concluded that the proposed development would be appropriate for the site for the following reasons:

1. The project complies with the Standards and Guidelines for Planned Developments in the Zoning Ordinance 17-8-0901 Uses, Bulk, Density and Intensity.

The proposed Planned Development is in strict compliance with the permitted Floor Area Ratio. The maximum FAR of 1.0 will not be exceeded nor will it negatively impact the surrounding area. In terms of height, scale, use and bulk the planned development is in substantial conformance with the surrounding community area. The proposed educational (School) use will complement the recreational use of the athletic turf field and not negatively impact the surrounding community area.

FINAL
The public infrastructure facilities and city services will be adequate to serve the proposed development at the time of occupancy. The proposed Planned Development has been reviewed by the Chicago Department of Transportation and all requested changes have been made.
17-8-0905-B Building Features - Urban and Building Design. The building's height at 3-stories, the materials proposed and the modern design complements the surrounding area. The building is setback from the sidewalk along East 63rd Street and South University Avenue with doors, windows and active uses adjacent to the street frontage.
Copies of the application have been circulated to other City departments and agencies and all comments received have been addressed; the project will comply with the requirements for access in case of fire and other emergencies.
The Applicant agrees to a minimum of "LEED" (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) basic certification. The Applicant also agrees to provide a vegetative ("green") roof system on a minimum of 25% of the net flat roof area and to provide a Volume Control, in lieu of a larger green roof, of at least 597 cubic feet.

The Volume Control will be provided via infiltration into the soil below permeable pavers located in the south courtyard area and/or into the CA 7 open graded stone based below the concrete fire lane to satisfy the City of Chicago's Sustainable Policy requirements. The volume control indicated above is separate from the detention requirements of the Storm water Ordinance.
The proposed development is compatible with the character of the surrounding area in terms of uses, density, and building scale. The proposed Institutional Planned Development would be consistent in terms of height, scale, use and bulk would remain consistent with the surrounding community.

Based on the foregoing, it is the recommendation of the Department of Planning and Development that the revised application for an Institutional Planned Development for The University of Chicago be approved and the recommendation to the City Council Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards be "As-Revised, Passage Recommended"
