AMENDMENT TO PLANNED
DEVELOPMENT #1052 (APPLICATION NO. 18378)

ASHLAND BELMONT LLC.

3201 NORTH ASHLAND AVENUE



Pursuant to the provisions of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance, Title 17 of the Municipal Code of Chicago, the Department of Planning and Development hereby submits this report and recommendation on a proposed amendment to Planned " Development #1052 for your review and recommendation to the Chicago City Council. The application was introduced to the .Chicago City Council on May 06, 2015. Notice of this- public hearing was published in the Chicaqo Sun-Times on August 05, 2015. The Applicant was separately notified of this public hearing.

This request is being submitted as a mandatory planned development, pursuant to Sections 17-13-0611-B, the section refers to specific criteria that'require the review and approval of the Chicago Plan Commission; one of the criterion is a change in character of the development and in this particular proposal the previous mixed use development is proposed to be changed to a solely commercial development which is a change in character from the previously approved planned development.
PROJECT BACKGROUND AND DESCRIPTION
The applicant and owner, Ashland Belmont LLC, is proposing to amend planned development #1052. The subject of the amendment would be a change in the proposed scope of work. The previously approved planned development called for the construction of a 6 story mixed use development. The proposal originally included 90,000 square feet of retail and commercial space on the first two floors, one hundred thirty (130) residential dwelling units and approximately three hundred (300) parking spaces. The amendment will now propose a new scope of work comprised of a single 3-story commercial building to be operated as a Whole Foods grocery store including 79,500 square feet of area and a minimum

FINAL

equivalent storm water mitigation of a 50% green roof. Additionally, the proposed building will obtain building certification.

ACCESS / CIRCULATION
All required parking stalls will be provided within the proposed building. The parking will be located on the grade level as well as a basement level. The parking will be accessed from a driveway along West Melrose Street on the north of the subject building, and also from a driveway along West Belmont Avenue on the south of the building. The subject site has two proposed loading berths which will be accessed from a separate driveway to be located along West Belmont Avenue.

BULK /USE /DENSITY
The current maximum allowable Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for the proposed underlying zoning district (B1-3) is 3.0; the proposed planned development is designed to an FAR of 1.0. All remaining bulk, use and density items will be in substantial compliance with the stipulations of Section 17-3-0400 for B1-3 zoning districts, per section 17-8-0901.

iRECOMMENDATIQN
The Department of Planning and Development has reviewed the project
— materials submitted by the Applicant and compared this proposal to the—
requirements.of the Chicago-Zoning Ordinance and existing development in the community. . The: area around this project is a, diverse -mix of commercial, residential and planned development uses and is accessible from numerous forms of public transit. Based on that analysis, DPD has concluded that this proposal is appropriate for this site and supports this development for the following reasons:
Promotes economically beneficial development patterns that are compatible with the character of the existing neighborhood (per 17-8-0103), as evidenced by the design, massing and proposed uses being in context with the character and needs of the immediate community;
Ensure a level of amenities appropriate to the nature and scale of the project (per 17-8-0104), as evidenced by the proposed development offering retail and grocery uses to the area residents while being in accordance with the requirements of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance;
Promotes transit; pedestrian and bicycle use, ensures accessibility for persons with disabilities-iand minimizes conflicts with existing traffic patterns in the vicinity (per 17-8-0904-1-2, 3 & 4), as evidenced through the site's close proximity to various methods of public transit, the accessibility accommodations made on-site for the retail users, the pedestrian and bicycle ingress and egress options provided to the retail users, and lastly the design of the building to fit current existing traffic patterns at the site;

FINAL



Based on the foregoing, it is the recommendation of the Department of Planning and Development that this application for the amendment of Planned Development #1052, as amended be approved and that the recommendation to the City Council Committee on Zoning Landmarks and Building Standards be "Passage Recommended".
