The proposed project will raze the existing building, currently used as an office (Atlas Realty, Inc.), and construct a 6-story storage facility. The project will be accessed from a shared 25-foot wide private right-of-way. The property is zoned Commercial Shopping Center (C-S-C) DDOZ in the Corridor Infill Character Area.
A storage facility is not a permitted use at this property, however, the applicant is requesting an amendment that requires an approval by the District Council. The sector plan only allows a building with a height of no more than 4 stories. If approved, this development will be the first in College Park with a use not supported in the 2010 Route 1 sector plan.
On June 19th, City Council recommended, by a vote of 5 to 3, approval with conditions for Preliminary Plan of Subdivision-JDA Consolidated Storage to create one parcel at 9604 Baltimore Avenue. City Staff recommends supporting DSP-18017 for JDA Baltimore Avenue Consolidated Storage with conditions.
Comments can be made at the meeting or via emails at: firstname.lastname@example.org up until 5 pm next Tuesday.
