§ 17-8-0600

Elective planned development thresholds

Applicants for developments that do not meet the minimum criteria for a mandatory planned development may nonetheless elect to follow the planned development review and approval procedures if the proposed development is to be located on a site with a minimum site area of 12,500 square feet in any D district, or 21,875 square feet in any other district and meets at least one of the following criteria:

17-8-0600-A is to include at least 50% of the number of dwelling units that triggers a mandatory PD (In an RT4 district, for example, a townhouse development containing at least 20 dwelling units would be eligible to follow the elective planned development review and approval procedures);

17-8-0600-B is to include at least 50% of the gross floor area that triggers a mandatory PD.  In a B or C zoning district, for example, a commercial use containing at least 37,500 square feet of gross floor area would be eligible to follow the elective planned development review and approval procedures.

17-8-0600-C is to include a building that is at least 50% of the height of a building that triggers a mandatory PD. In a D dash 5 district, for example, a residential building of at least 65 feet in height or a nonresidential building of at least 75 feet in height would be eligible to follow the elective planned development review and approval procedures.

17-8-0601 In any D district, an application to substantially rehabilitate and preserve an individual building which has been either 1) designated by ordinance as a “Chicago Landmark”, and in the case of a landmark district, a building for which the Commission on Chicago Landmarks has made a formal determination that said building is a contributing building to the district, or 2) has been color-coded red or orange in the Chicago Historic Resources Survey, may elect to follow the planned development review and approval procedures regardless of site area or other qualifying criteria.
