The Applicant proposes to consolidate three parcels along the north side of E. Broad Street between North Washington and Lawton Streets. The subject parcels are as follows: 100 N.

Washington Streets, an Applebee's restaurant, and a medical office building at the intersection of E. Broad and Lawton Streets.
The City is asked to consider the following land use actions associated with the development proposal:
Special Exception – to allow residential use within a mixed-use development
Special Exception – to allow a height bonus of up to 10 feet in B-2, Central Business District
Development proposals of this scale must go through numerous phases of staff review and receive several reviews and approvals by boards, commissions and City organizations before they are considered for approval by the City Council.
