That means that at a minimum, this iteration of the project is dead. Now, whether the developers decide to come back and propose something else, even something similar, that is up to them. But this particular proposal is dead. They would have to start a new proposal to try again.

Here is the code:

(b)Effect of denial of application. Denial of rezoning applications by the city council, filed under this section, shall preclude consideration of other rezoning applications for the same zoning classification sought by the denied application involving the same lands or any portion thereof for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of denial of the previous application. However, upon written application to the land development coordination office, the zoning administrator shall consider a request to waive the twelve-month period if in the determination of the zoning administrator the applicant demonstrates:

(1) A specific or comprehensive amendment to the adopted land use plan became a law subsequent to the certification of the denied application for rezoning; and, the amendment has the effect of altering the land use plan so as to allow for favorable reconsideration of the application; or

(2) The new site plan rezoning request has adequately addressed the grounds for denial identified during the public hearing.
Sec. 27-150(b). Code of Ordinances.

Channel District developers challenge Tampa zoning denial over controversial storage units

ByJanelle Irwin Tayloron
January 22, 2019

Bluetiger Properties and two attorneys who represent a development group are suing the city of Tampa over a project City Council rejected amid neighborhood concerns that it wasn’t a good fit for the community.

Developers had planned an eight story mid-rise tower in the Channel District consisting of 305 apartments and 11,518 square-feet of ground-level retail space. But what soured neighbors were plans to also include 140,000 square-feet of mini-warehouse storage.

Despite community opposition, developers claimed their development plan fell within city zoning rules. They argued the storage units were a necessary amenity in the district where Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik‘s Strategic Property Partners group and Cascade Investments, which is controlled by Bill Gates, has already broken ground on parts of the $3 billion Water Street Tampa mega-development in the same area. They also said the plan was appropriate for the space because the storage units would be situated next to commercial space currently occupied by a Tampa Electric Company transmission station.

no surprise there. Esp if they approve the other proposal downtown which is a complete violation of existing codes but deny this project. This project was about as good as I think you can get to make a storage facility use work into existing zoning.

Actually not really. Although these projects have some similarity on their face (storage units) they're very different from a legal perspective. This project was seeking a rezoning and is governed by Channel District code. The other storage project is seeking a Special Use-2 permit and is not governed by the Channel District code. It's different rules and different standards applying to each project, so they actually don't really share much in common. They might also have different designations on the future land use map (don't have time to check right now, but you see my point.)

Also, it's not like this project wasn't seeking waivers. The notion that this project "met all of the code" is categorically false:

Quote:
WAIVERS:

1. SEC. 27-283.14 TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OFF-STREET LOADING SPACES FROM 5 TO 2.

2. SEC 27-283.12(J) TO ALLOW COMMERCIAL TRAFFIC ACCESS TO A LOCAL STREET (E. WASHINGTON STREET & N 1)

In conclusion, this beautiful building was declined because the city would not allow traffic on a local road and 3 off-loading spaces and there was not a connector between two completely separate businesses. WOW. So many facepalms here. Lets not become the anti-development city.

This project is being re-proposed without waivers. It is going before council tomorrow to ask for relief from the previous denial, so it can be proposed again without having to wait a year.

This just got approved 4-2. Miranda and Maniscalco voted no. Citro was absent.

A motion was made to re-visit the Channel District code to ban the self-storage use in the Channel District and make other code change recommendations to the
Channel District. Staff is supposed to report back within 60 days with recommendations.

So the project itself wasn't approved, just the relief from denial so they don't have to wait, right?

Right, but this time it will theoretically sail through approval, as it will be submitted with no waivers.

Looks like the project was approved and in addition, the city staff is going to review amending the code to prevent this type of development moving forward.

The land has been purchased
