Document Description
The project site is currently developed with a two-screen, drive-in theatre and a building containing restrooms, concession facilities, and a projection house, which collectively are in the process of ceasing operations. The project consists of redevelopment of the project site as a commerce center with an approximately 300,145 square foot (gross area, inclusive of mezzanines and 10,000 sf of office space) one-story industrial building. The building would be up to 50 feet in height and would accommodate warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, assembly, and/or research and development operations, and related office uses. In addition to the industrial building, the project would include up to 42 dock-high doors, four grade-level doors, two truck courts, and up to 301 passenger-vehicle parking spaces, 30- and 40-foot-wide fire access lanes along the building perimeter, landscaping, and fencing along portions of the developed perimeter with automated gates at certain driveway locations. The project would also include associated utility, stormwater treatment, and roadway improvements. The project is consistent with the site’s existing land use designation (IL-Light Industrial) and zoning (Light Industrial-IL).
