2014 04 14 Informational 200 Current Planning ProjectsCOMMISSION AGENDA ITEM 200 Informational X Consent Public Hearings Regular April 14, 2014 KS RS Regular Meeting City Manager Department REQUEST: Community Development Department is advising the City Commission of the status of various current planning projects. SYNOPSIS: The projects listed below are those with some consistent activity, although not every project has additional activity for every update report. Items listed below that have changed since the last update are shown in bold type. Items which have not and do not appear likely to generate any change are periodically dropped from this agenda item with prior notice to the City Commission. CONSIDERATIONS: Artesian Park - A new developer has purchased the property that is the site of the former Artesian Park townhome development. This development was approved by the City Commission in 2006 with a total of 103 townhome units in the Town Center, adjacent to Jesup's Landing. Following approval, site construction ceased as a result of the economic downturn. The new developer is proposing a different architectural style, with a total of 99 units. The applicant is requesting three Special Exceptions from the Town Center Code prior to submittal of the Final Engineering Plans. The Special Exceptions that are requested relate to building setbacks and maximum lot coverage requirements. The Special Exception requests will be presented to the Planning & Zoning Board on December 4, 2013, and to the City Commission on January 13, 2014 for final approval. On December 4, 2013, the Planning & Zoning Board unanimously recommended approval of the three Special Exception requests. This item will be presented to the City Commission for final approval at Informational 200 PAGE 1 OF 12 - April 14, 2014 the January 13, 2014 meeting. The City Commission unanimously approved the three Special Exception requests at the January 13, 2014 meeting. Bart Phillips /419 Auto & Metal — This project remains on hold pending the outcome of the CSX railroad crossing and the trail right -of -way swap. Construction of the wall along SR 419, east of Wade Street is underway with inspections on- going. Please see the update for the Cross Seminole Trail below. Cross Seminole Trail- The Cross Seminole Trail has a missing link from Layer Elementary to the west end of Old Sanford /Oviedo Road. In order for the State to convey the adjacent trail right of way to the City, the City is offering an equivalent area of unimproved right of way near Old Sanford Oviedo Road. This unimproved right of way will be used as a portion of the property needed to complete the Cross Seminole Trail missing link. Additional property along SR 419 and Layer Elementary is being donated by Bart Phillips to complete this section of the trail corridor that is needed. Mr. Phillips is also receiving a small piece of right of way from the State that will no longer be needed once this alignment is finalized. This approval allows for a land swap to be completed with the State to allow for the construction of the Magnolia Park Amphitheater. Staff requested the trail width be increased from 12' to 14' to be consistent with the rest of the trail in the City. The construction of the Magnolia Park Amphitheater is on hold until the City receives a warranty deed from the State conveying to the City approximately 0.44 acres of adjacent trail right of way to the City. This adjacent trail right of way is needed because the amphitheater building encroaches into the State's trail right of way. This encroachment will allow maximum utilization of this facility given the constraints of the site. Additional updates will be made available as information is forthcoming. According to Jim Leftheris of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the land swap between the Bart Phillips property and the State of Florida is scheduled for the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) meeting on December 12th or 13th, 2013. This meeting will determine whether a recommendation of approval or denial should be forwarded to the Governor and Cabinet. The Cabinet meeting is scheduled approximately 7 months following the ARC meeting. At this meeting, a final vote to approve or deny the Exchange Agreement contract will be held. Assuming the Cabinet approves the Exchange Agreement, closing can occur 120 days following the Cabinet Meeting. Because of concerns over some excess trail right - of -way at the entrance to Layer Elementary School, the State's Requisitions and Restoration Council (ARC) meeting has been postponed until sometime in February 2014. The ARC unanimously approved the request at their February 14, 2014 meeting. The item should come before the Governor and Cabinet in the fall of 2014. Grandeville at Town Center 6f114 Villa Grandee — This project is proposed as a 244 unit, 4- story apartment complex located adjacent to City Hall at the northwest corner of the intersection of Doran Drive and SR 434. The subject property is 4.78 acres in size and is located in the T5 zone (Urban Center Zone) of the Town Center. The proposed apartment complex is designed as a "Texas Donut." This is a popular design concept that is utilized in urban areas such as the Winter Springs Town Center that incorporates structured parking into a high density, urban setting without exposing the parking structure to public view. In the "Texas Donut" design configuration, apartment units are constructed around the parking garage and the amenities, so each are internal to the development and are not visible from the surrounding areas. The main frontages of the building will be oriented toward State Road 434, and Doran Drive. The building will have a setback of zero feet along State Road 434 and Doran Drive. A zero foot setback is encouraged in the T5 zone of the Town Center and is reflective of historic downtown layouts. With this building constructed to the right -of- Informational 200 PAGE 2 OF 12 - April 14, 2014 way line, it will help transform this portion of State Road 434 into the urban boulevard that was envisioned in the Town Center master plan. The proposed project represents completion of a major portion of the Town Center core. Staff recently issued a zoning verification letter to the applicant's attorney. This purpose of this letter is to help assist in the financing of the construction of this project. The developer and the architect are finalizing budget numbers to accommodate the recent increase in construction costs.

Staff is working with the developer on various allowable advertisement methods. Construction on the clubhouse and pool area is nearing completion. Six buildings are complete or nearing completion and units are being sold. The developer has presented an option for a two - story unit with the same architectural detailing. This option represents a minor aesthetic modification as the buildings will look the same and have the same architectural detailing. The project layout remains exactly the same as approved. Informational 200 PAGE 3 OF 12 - April 14, 2014 This option is under review by staff. Magnolia Park — The construction of the Magnolia Park Amphitheater is on hold until the City receives a warranty deed from the State conveying to the City approximately 0.44 acres of adjacent trail right of way to the City. This adjacent trail right of way is needed because the amphitheater building encroaches into the State's trail right of way. This encroachment will allow maximum utilization of this facility given the constraints of the site. Additional updates will be made available as information is forthcoming. Please see Cross Seminole Trail update for more information. Mermel property Annexation (Southern Oaks) — The City has received an application from American Land Investments of Central Florida, LLC (the developer of the Weaver and Toledo properties) for annexation of approximately 4.4 acres located on the west side of DeLeon Street, east of the Weaver property.
