The property is subject to a Planned Unit Development (PUD), PUD-26. The PUD is a flexible zoning district that allows a site to take advantage of special site characteristics, locations and land uses. The PUD provides for mixed use, multi-story urban village development including commercial, office and a range of housing types. Architectural elements are designed to create the urban village feel. Design and use of the property is prescribed to conform with the unique characteristics of the surrounding College Hill Neighborhood.

The PUD allows for both commercial and residential use permitted within Neighborhood Retail (NR) zoning. The gross floor area of commercial uses in the entire development cannot exceed 30,000 S.F. Restaurants are permitted within the PUD and cannot exceed 6,000 S.F.

All parcels are subject to a 10 foot setback except where facing Douglas Avenue. Commercial uses are prohibited from facing and being located within 70 feet of 1st Street.
