Schlotzsky PUD

This is a proposed project at 218 South Lamar Blvd (the northwest corner of South Lamar Blvd and Toomey Rd), currently the site of the Schlotzsky's restaurant and is located within the Waterfront Overlay. The applicant has proposed changing the zoning from CS/CS-V to PUD to allow an increase in height from 60 feet to 96 feet to accommodate an office building on a 1.266-acre site. The ZNA Executive Committee currently opposes the application to amend the zoning because the height increase is inconsistent with the desire to prevent tall buildings close to the lake and park and because LDC § 25-2-144 (D) requires that "a PUD district must include at least 10 acres of land, unless the property is characterized by special circumstances, including unique topographic constraints."
