Mr. Luce presented the petition <br />for rezoning a portion of the Halla property, located East of T.H. 100, West <br />of Willson Road and South of Eden Avenue, from R-1 Single Family Rcsidencial <br />District to APD Automobile Parking District, which hearing had been continued <br />from the Council Neeting of November 6, 1972. FJith the aid of the viewgraph, <br />Nr. Luce pointed out that it is proposed to rezone the property so as to pro- <br />vide parking facilities for a Perkins Steak & Cake House, owners of which are <br />executing a thirty year lease for the property. Rezoning of this property is <br />necessary to provide parking facilities in accordance with the Zoning Ordinance. <br />I&. Luce explained that it is hoped that by the time the lease expires, tech- <br />nology and/or land values will make it feasible to construct an eight story <br />apartment building on the Southerly portion of the land, thus eliminating the <br />need for the previously requested R-5 zoning on the Northerly portion of tk <br />property. <br />zoning for the Northerly portion of the property had been denied by Council <br />about two years ago. Mr. Logan Johnson, representing the Halls and Perkins <br />interests, presented plans for refurbishing the existing Halla building, <br />explaining that it is proposed to construct a dining room for 200 people <br />on the upper level, with offices and a training center to be located in the <br />lower level of the building, with access from the South side. Mr. Harry <br />Gustafson, attorney representing the Hallas and Perkins, confirmed that a <br />thirty year lease had been signed, subject to zoning approval. Councilman <br />Shaw recalled that concern had been expressed that the proposed building <br />would overshadow the Historic Park, but that from the rendering presented, <br />and the triangle of land between the two areas, he did not believe that'this <br />would present a problem; It was also pointed out that the Southerly portion <br />of the property would remain R-1 Residential District. <br />4603 Browndale Ave., asked for assurance that there will not be a fourteen <br />story building on the site, in addition to the Perkins Steak & Cake House. <br />She concurred that the.proposed use would not present any problems. Council- <br />man Johnson said that it would be speculative to suggest what the appropriate <br />use for the Southerly portion of the property would be at this time. <br />Donald Halla said that no plans have been made for the Southern portion of <br />the property and added that he would welcome suggestions of the Council. <br />Councilman Courtney pointed out that, while this Council wdd not approve an <br />extension of the commercial zoning, future Councils cou1.d not be bound. <br />Following considerable discussion, Councilman Johnson said that he feels that <br />this is a reasonable use for the property and offered Ordinance No. 811-A31 <br />for Fixst Reading as follows: <br />Nr.
