The public hearing for this project will be continued to the January 5, 2021 City Council meeting.
This is a proposal to re-develop the 22-acre parcel at 6600-6800 France. The applicant is proposing a significant change to the development plans that were approved for this site in 2017.
The new buildings proposed for the site are as follows: A 9-story, 150-foot tall 230,375 square foot office building; A 4-story, 70-foot tall 70,000 square foot medical office building; A new 12,000 square foot restaurant (Tavern on France); A 20,000 square foot water treatment plant; Three above grade parking structures; and a 13 story (157-foot tall) and 6-story apartment building totaling 239 units. Buildings that remain include the bank, 6600 France and 6800 France office buildings.
The request requires a Rezoning to amend the original PUD that was approved in 2017, including overall development plan and consideration of an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW). Flexibility would be requested through the PUD Ordinance to vary from required setbacks, building height, parking spaces and floor area ratio (FAR) requirements.
