The Fayetteville Planning and Zoning Commission last week approved a request for less intense commercial zoning on South Glynn Street just south of City Hall that provides a way for the owner to live on the second floor of the nearly 6,150 square-foot building while leasing the first floor for office space.
Recommending approval of the request, city planner Linwood Robinson in a Feb. 8 memo said the property sits on a .37-acre lot and currently contains a vacant 6,148 square-foot, two-story office building in the Main Street District. The building was renovated both inside and out by a previous owner but was never occupied under that ownership, Robinson said.
The request asked that the C-3 (Highway Commercial) zoning at 300 South Glynn Street be approved for a less intensive C-1 zoning to provide a way for the property owner to reside on the second floor of the 6,148 square-foot building and lease the first floor for office space, Robinson said.
Robinson said the applicant is a new owner of the property which has been on the market for sale for quite some time.
The current interior is already built out on the first level to accommodate leasing to tenants and adequate on-site parking is provided at the side and rear of the site, Robinson said.
