The city Downtown Development Review Board is scheduled to consider sending its recommendation to City Council to rezone 0.58 of an acre on the east side of North Pearl Street, between West Ashley and West Beaver streets, from Planned Unit Development to the Commercial Central Business District.
The site is in the Church Overlay District.
DDRB is scheduled to meet at 2 p.m. Nov. 9. The agenda includes its recommendation for Ordinance 2023-751.
According to the staff report, the owner, Ocean Broad Ventures LLC, is seeking the rezoning to CCBD to bring the property’s zoning district into uniformity with other Downtown properties.
The report states that additionally, the permissive nature of the CCBD zoning district, as amended in 2019, opens the door to a complementary uses allowed by right on the property. Any improvements made to the site would be subject to DDRB review for consistency with the form regulations and design standards.
Ocean Broad Ventures is represented by attorney Cyndy Trimmer with Driver, McAfee, Hawthorne and Diebenow.
The board will meet in Conference Room G4 at the Main Library, 303 N. Laura St., in Downtown.
The ordinance is scheduled for a hearing before the city Planning Department on Dec. 7 and a hearing before the Council Land Use and Zoning Committee on Jan. 3, 2024.
