B-20-15 6800 Brittany Road, Variance from Basement Requirement

CLOSED: This item is on the July 22 Planning Commission agenda.

Applicant Submittal

A variance is requested from the zoning ordinance basement requirement for a new home to be rebuilt at 6800 Brittany Road. A variance is requested from the following ordinance requirement:

Basements. All single dwelling unit buildings shall be constructed with a basement having a gross floor area equal to at least 50 percent of the gross floor area of the story next above. 

The property is 42,986 square feet in area and is located on the west side of Brittany Road.  The previous home on the lot was built in 1970 and has been removed with the property currently a vacant lot. The applicant is requesting a variance from the minimum basement requirements in order to construct a new one story home at 6800 Brittany Road. The goal is to have one level living. The proposed home will conform to all of the zoning ordinance requirements with the exception that it will not have a basement. The City of Edina’s zoning ordinance requires that all new homes have a basement. 

Final action on this project is taken by the Planning Commission.
