This proposal is to replace the existing Bike Line house with a new, larger structure. The alley to the west of the Bike Line and Renee's Bakery would be opened and improved to allow for traffic flow.
The committee decided to wait for the comments from the Department of Metropolitan Development and then take an electronic vote on whether or not to support this petition.

This proposal has appeared before the committee before. The model of the building was shown in issue #21 of the Gazette this year. This is a proposal to build a 4-story retail/apartment building occupying most of the land between Weaver's Lawn and Garden on the west to Broad Ripple Park on the east.

Several changes were incorporated into the design since the last meetings with the BRVA, including dumpster location and the overlap on the west end with Weaver's. The petitioners stated that an agreement was reached with the property owner for the Weaver's land, with access granted to the petitioner for the west entrance in exchange for new water and sewer connections provided by the petitioner to the Weaver's property.
The committee voted to support this petition.
3. 6247 College Avenue, Ricky Phan, Owner Basic Exchanges L.L.C. regarding the flood control plan.
This petitioner did not appear, so this item was skipped.
4. 6360 Guilford Avenue, LOR Corp - razing existing structures and building a 4-story office building.
This presentation showed the preliminary designs for a new 4-story office building to replace the old 3 Sisters Cafe house in the 6300 black of Guilford (3 Sisters moved to 6223 Guilford Avenue in 2014). Each 1300 sq. ft. floor has a large balcony. The variance required is for parking. The petitioner has arranged for dedicated off-site parking to provide the needed spaces.
The committee decided to wait for the comments from the Department of Metropolitan Development and then take an electronic vote on whether or not to support this petition.
The next public meeting of the Land Use and Development committee is planned for Tuesday, January 23 at Northminster Presbyterian Church starting at 6 pm.
