MK Plan for Zoning Overlay

May 13th, 2015
Critical Area #1

College Avenue at Kessler Boulevard, East Drive

Why Critical: The southern edge (northern boundary of Meridian Kessler Neighborhood) of this intersection has the most intense commercial zoning (C-4) within the College Avenue corridor. The properties are occupied with a car repair facility (formerly a gas station) on the southwest corner and a veterinarian clinic (formerly a gas station) on the southeast corner. The property (5870 College Avenue) along the west side of College Avenue and south of the C-4 zoning, is owned by AT&T and zoned C-1, which provides for commercial offices. It is developed with a three-story brick building and large parking lot.

Recommendations:

  • See Land Use and Design Recommendations for College Avenue above.
  • Redevelopment of 5870 College Avenue should be as a multi-story mixed-use building that is integrated and consistent with the character and architecture of the neighborhood. Property of this size is uncommon in the Meridian Kessler neighborhood and should command high quality design standards.
