In mid-July, revised plans were submitted for the residential properties at the northeast corner of Fishinger Road and Fairlington Drive – adjacent to the Scioto View Shopping Center on Riverside Drive. Formerly referred to as the Fairlington Heights Condominiums, this project has been renamed Scioto Villas and now comprises 15 condominiums. The proposed project was review by the Board of Zoning and Planning in August, with the Board voting to recommend approval to City Council at its August 17 meeting. City Council reviewed the proposal in late August and September, and voted to approve the rezoning on September 12.

PROJECT HISTORY
In February of 2022, plans were submitted for the proposed rezoning of four residential properties to accommodate a redevelopment of 29 condominiums. 
Following input provided to the developer through the public review process, revised plans were submitted for three parcels that reduced the number of condominiums to 22, lowered the density and provided more greenspace. Once the proposal was before City Council, further adjustments were made, reducing the proposal by another two units and incorporating green space at the southwest corner of the site.

At the June 27 City Council Meeting, Council voted 6-0 to deny the rezoning. The developers advised Council that they would submit a new rezoning application with less units and building height, per the feedback received, for consideration by BZAP and Council later this summer.

ABOUT REZONING REQUESTS
Rezoning requests are first reviewed by the Board of Zoning and Planning (BZAP). Following review, BZAP makes a recommendation to City Council for its consideration and action. Three readings at City Council would then follow where a determination would be made on whether or not to rezone the property.

PROJECT DETAILS

The new submittal for this project proposes rezoning the following properties – totaling 1.92 acres – from R-1 (One-Family Residence District) to RCD (Residential Community Development District):

  • 2790 Fishinger Road
  • 2770 Fishinger Road
  • 2750 Fishinger Road

The proposed condominium project would be comprised of 15, two-story condominium units, with 30 garage spaces and 14 guest parking spaces.
