FILE NOS: CP19-013 and c19-013 

A Conditional Use Permit to allow a private school (toddler through 12th grade) for approximately 2,744 students and 480 daytime employees, including 285 faculty. The project includes seven buildings, approximately 642 vehicle parking spaces, and 751 bicycle parking spaces on the 11.87-acre project site. The project also includes outdoor recreational spaces for students and landscaping throughout the site. 

The project site is currently developed with three office buildings (550 Meridian, 570 Meridian, 1401 Parkmoor Avenue), multiple warehouses (691, 581, 529 Race Street), parking garage, existing surface parking lots and associated landscaping. The site currently includes 362,568 square feet of existing buildings comprised of approximately 150,426 square-feet of warehouse structures and 212,142 square feet of office space. The proposed school campus development would include both adaptive re-use of two existing buildings (550 Meridian, 570 Meridian) and new construction, resulting in a total of seven buildings, a theater, gymnasium and aquatic center, administrative space, and a sports field. Full build-out of the proposed project would include up to approximately 460,000 square feet of new development above grade and 80,000 gross square feet of basement area.

The project also includes the removal of approximately 50 ordinance-sized trees and a rezoning from the IP - Industrial Park zone district to the CIC - Combined Industrial Commercial zone district; all on a 11.87-acre site.
