It is now pro- <br />posed to construct a 16,000 square foot office building on this same property and <br />Kan:,,Comm -- has recommended denial of this zoning. Mr. Gene Gaddis, 5112 <br />Gorgos Avenue, read a statement signed by owners of 26 adjacent properties . ex - <r <br />pressing opposition to the proposed zoning, stating that W. 51st Street pro- <br />vides a natural and established boundary between commercial zoning to the north <br />and the residential zoning to the south and that the development of new homes <br />on Gorgas Avenue has been predicated on the present Single Family District zon- <br />ing. Mr. Arthur Dickey advised that the proposed building is two stories high <br />with parking in the rear and underneath the building. Mr. James Ellingson, <br />5117 Gorgas Avenue, I1r. Miles Hirschey, 5101 Gorgas Avenue and Mr. Grant. <br />Eggen, 5112 France Avenue, all expressed concern that an office building would <br />devalue their property. Councilman Courtney rioted that he thought that a new- <br />building on the site under consideration would be preferable to the existing <br />houses. Mayor Bredesen said that it is highly unlikely that the present dwell- <br />ings would be replaced by new houses with the business area nearby. He added <br />that if the property is granted Office Building zoning, there must be assurance <br />that this type of zoning would not be continued further south on France Avenue. <br />Mayor Bredesen also suggested.the possibility of getting a:iiumYaet',.of ' ptoperties <br />under one ownership so that some type of multiple housing could act as a buffer <br />between the business district and single family dwellings.' Mr. Roger Rovick <br />of Edina Realty, speaking for Mr. David Thomas, was advised by Mr. Whitlock that <br />if a deed restriction were granted, the lot would have to be large enough to <br />support the type of zoning which.would be requested. Following bon6iderable <br />discussion, Councilman Courtney's motion approving Office Building District <br />zoning for the property under consideration, but with the stipulation that Second <br />Reading be deferred until assurance is given of proper multiple residence <br />development further down the block was seconded by Councilman Shaw and carried. <br />Councilman Shaw noted that this Council cannot bind future Councils by this <br />decision, however.
