SUBDIVISION REVIEW SHEET CASE NO.: C8-2019-0066.0A PC DATE: January 12, 2021 SUBDIVISION NAME: Fionn Resubdivision AREA: 0.99 acre LOTS: 4 APPLICANT: 3205 Clawson LLC (Lluis Bacardi) AGENT: Ed Moore ADDRESS OF SUBDIVISION: 3205 Clawson Rd GRIDS: G19 COUNTY: Travis WATERSHED: West Bouldin Creek JURISDICTION: Full Purpose EXISTING ZONING: SF-3-NP LAND USE: residential NEIGHORHOOD PLAN: South Lamar VARIANCES: flag lot variance DISTRICT: 3 SIDEWALKS: Sidewalks will built along the Clawson Road frontage. DEPARTMENT COMMENTS: The request is for the approval of the Resubdivision of a portion of Block 25 Theodore Low Heights, with a flag lot variance. The applicant proposes to resubdivide an existing lot into four lots for residential use. The plat is comprised of one regular lot and three flag lots on 0.99 acre (42,467 sf.) This application was submitted on May 1, 2019 and has not expired because subdivision deadlines have been suspended until March 15, 2021 (Order No. 20200815-019). Because this plat was submitted under the regulations in effect prior to HB3167, it requires a public hearing and a commission variance for the flag lots. The flag lot variance complies with the criteria of approval in LDC 25-4-175(A) because all reviewers have approved the plat and the driveway/utility plan. With the flag lot variance, the lots comply with zoning requirements for use, lot width and lot size. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of the plat and the flag lot variance. With the flag lot variance, the resubdivision meets all applicable State and City of Austin Land Development Code requirements.

PO Box 2539 San Antonio, Texas, 78299 and H-E-B 646 South Flores Street San Antonio, Texas 78204 ATTN: Amadeus Fernandes CASE NUMBER: PROJECT NAME: ADDRESS: APPLICANT: AGENT: Kimley Horn (Hudson Harrison) (737) 202-3202 2699 Via Fortuna, Suite 300, Austin, TX 78746 Phone: (512)974-3338 Randall Rouda Randall.Rouda@austintexas.gov CASE MANAGER: PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT: The applicant is requesting a conditional use permit for Large Retail Use (food sales) in CS-CO-NP zoning in order to expand an existing grocery store to enhance services. A comparable amount of existing retail commercial building will be demolished to accommodate the grocery store expansion. The proposed development would also remove an existing pedestrian connection between the northerly and southerly parking lots. The applicant has agreed to accept a Condition of Approval requiring replacement of a functionally equivalent pedestrian connection prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for the proposed expansion. A Large Retail Use means a use listed in Land Development Code section 25-2-815-A, including food sales, with 100,000 square feet or more of gross floor area. Large Retail Use is a conditional use. The existing food sales building is approximately 90,000 sq. ft. The proposed building would be 129,879 square feet. The existing grocery store is an anchor use in the Hancock Shopping Center. The shopping center no longer has a valid Site Development Permit. To remedy this concern, the applicant is also requesting approval of a Site Plan Permit to re-certify the entire shopping center. Any future changes to the shopping center would be processed as revisions to the currently proposed Site Development Permit. SUMMARY STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of the Conditional Use Permit for Large Retail Use (food sales) and Site Development Permit for the Hancock Shopping Center with the following conditions: 1) A Certificate of Occupancy will not be issued for the Grocery Store expansion until an open air pedestrian walkway from the north wall of the building to the south side of the building has been constructed. 2) That all remaining informal administrative comments are cleared prior to site plan approval. 1 of 9B-6 PROJECT INFORMATION SITE AREA EXISTING ZONING WATERSHED WATERSHED ORDINANCE TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS Not required CAPITOL VIEW CORRIDOR PROPOSED ACCESS 34.25 Acres CS-CO-NP(Majority of Shopping Center Including Grocery …
