Variances needed because it’s still zoned I-2 (medium industrial). ZBA hearing is scheduled for October 9th.

In fact the refusals are included in the CDR submission:
THE PROPOSED USE, MULTI-FAMILY (FIFTY-FIVE (55) DWELLING UNITS) HOUSEHOLD LIVING, IS EXPRESSLY
PROHIBITED IN THIS ZONING DISTRICT, 1-2

THE BALCONIES ARE PERMITTED IN ALL RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS, COMMERCIAL MIXED-USE DISTRICTS, AND THE
IRMX DISTRICT. WHEREAS THE PROPOSED BALCONIES ARE IN THE 1-2 INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT.
By never introducing an ordinance to remap his stretch of Washington Avenue to the newer zoning code as recommended by the Planning Commission, Councilperson Kenyatta Johnson maintains his gatekeeper role for development on the corridor.
