  • 601 W Broadway: Rezoning Request

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
    25 days ago

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

    An application is under review to rezone the subject properties located at 601 W Broadway and the parcel directly east of 601 W Broadway from Special District SD/Riverfront Triangle, sub-district D to CBD-4 (Central Business District)/DE-D Outer Core (Design Excellence Downtown Overlay). This rezone would result in a standard zoning district in Title 20 and may not be conditioned.

    The subject property is Sub-district D within the area currently zoned Riverfront Triangle Special District (SD/Riverfront Triangle). The current zoning was applied to the Riverfront Triangle Area in 2004 as a way to implement the Riverfront Triangle Redevelopment Master Plan (RTRMP). The SD/Riverfront Triangle was approved under Title 19 and is not incorporated into Title 20. Any new standards City Council has adopted into Title 20, such as the Commercial Building Design Standards, do not apply to land zoned SD/Riverfront Triangle. All other properties in SD/Riverfront Triangle were rezoned to CBD-4 in May of 2017 with the adoption of the Fox Triangle Land Use and Development Requirements Agreement.

  • 508 S 3rd St W: /AR Adaptive Reuse Overlay Rezone

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
    25 days ago

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

    An application is under review for a request to rezone the property located at 508 S. 3rd Street West to apply the /AR Adaptive Reuse Overlay. The property is currently zoned C1-4 Neighborhood Commercial with the /DE-C Design Excellence Corridor Typology 2 Overlay.

    The applicant makes this request in anticipation of increasing the number of units in the existing multi-dwelling building from sixteen (16) to twenty-two (22) dwelling units, which will exceed the allowed density under the current zoning. A project within the /AR District may exceed the maximum density established by the underlying zoning district for the parcel, so long as the added density is allowable by building code.

    The building is a contributing building to the Southside Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, is eligible for individual listing on the National Register of Historic Places, and is listed on Missoula’s Local Inventory of Historic Resources. The applicant plans to restore and renovate the building using the Secretary of the Interior’s standards for historic building rehabilitation.

    Based on these historical characteristics, the Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic Preservation Officer determined that the project qualifies for the /AR District Overlay.
