The subject property is located at 415 Century Parkway, which is on the east side of Century Parkway, approximately 525 feet south of the intersection of Century Parkway and Butler Drive. The properties to the north and south retain zoning designations of Light Industrial (LI). The property to the west (across Century Parkway) retains a zoning designation of Planned Development No. 117 with a base zoning district of LI. The properties to the east (across the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) right-of-way) retain zoning designations of Single-Family Residential (R-2 and R-3).
The subject property is 3.999± acres and retains a zoning designation of LI. The applicant is requesting to amend the existing zoning designation by adopting a new Planned Development District with associated development regulations, and a Zoning Exhibit, Concept Plan, Conceptual Landscape Plan, and Conceptual Building Elevations.
The attached concept plan shows the single platted lot, including the existing one-story building. The existing building has a total floor area of 65,850± square feet (38,790± square feet of office use and 27,060± square feet of warehouse use). The proposed zoning would permit the occupation of the building by an office showroom / warehouse use as well as an automotive sales component. It should be noted that the automotive sales component and associated minor maintenance would only be permitted within the enclosed building. Additionally, vehicle delivery is not permitted by a commercial vehicle hauler, and all vehicles must be stored in the interior portion of the building.
There is a total of two access points into the development--both via access easements to the adjacent properties to the north and south of the subject site. Additionally, the applicant is proposing to limit access within the property via two gates, which would be located on the north and south fire lanes. These gates will be required to meet all requirements by the Fire Department for emergency access.
The building elevations show minor enhancements to the existing 33-foot± tall building. While building materials cannot be regulated by the proposed ordinance, these materials are shown for illustrative purposes.
The Conceptual Landscape Plan shows minor enhancements to the landscaping on the property, particularly adjacent to the west façade of the existing building.
This request has been reviewed by the Technical Review Committee. The request is in general conformance with the future land use map in the adopted Comprehensive Plan and is compatible with the surrounding uses.
On August 3, 2021, the Planning and Zoning Commission voted to recommend approval of this request.
