This project involves: • Demolition of an existing 4 -unit residential structure. • Construction of 8 townhouses in 3 buildings. • Construction of a new stormwater management system. gitP ('nnrfitinnr, The project will be combining two lots; one at 18 Cherry Street that has an area of eleven thousand sixty six square feet (11,066ft2 ) and the other at 38 Marvin Alley that has an area of sixteen thousand six hundred and sixty square feet (16,66 Oft2) (see exhibit A) for a total area of twenty seven thousand seven hundred and twenty six square feet (27,726ft2) . The Cherry Street lot, as it currently exists, is occupied by an existing two-story 4 -unit residential structure with a gravel driveway. The Marvin Alley lot is currently vacant, however, there was a residential structure that was recently removed as the evidence of this was revealed during the excavation of the test pits. Test pits were performed to ascertain subsurface conditions (see exhibit C); the Saratoga County Soil map indicates that Windsor Loamy Sand with a hydrologic group of should exist on the entire site. The excavation of the test pits revealed that the site has been developed throughout its history. Construction debris existed in each of the four (4) excavated areas. Test pits 1,2 and 4 revealed silty clay starting between eighteen (18) and twenty-four (24) inches with the final depths of these pits between sixty (60) and seventy-two (72) inches. Test pit 3 revealed silty sand hard packed starting at thirty-six (36) inches with the bottom reaching sixty (60) inches. There was slight mottling but groundwater was not evident in the test pits; infiltration tests yielded results of zero (0) inches in sixty minutes for test pits 1, 2, and 4. Test pit 3 yielded three (3) inches in sixty (60) minutes. Pre -Construction (Existing) Stormwater Conditions The site as it now exists discharges into Cherry Street and Marvin Alley that will ultimately discharge to Putnam Brook. Post -Construction (Proposed) Stormwater Conditions The development will have an increase of impervious area (see exhibit B). As a result of the site soil conditions, infiltration on site cannot be utilized. A series of CDS units will be used to treat the water quality volume requirement. A subsurface detention system will detain the runoff to the pre -construction runoff rates. Report Prepared by: StUdIOA Landscape Architecture, D.P.C. 480 Broadway Suite LL -14 I P.O.

As you are aware, this application was tabled at the April 10, 2017 Zoning Board of Appeals meeting at which time the ZBA voted to pass SEQR Lead Agency status to the City Planning Board. We subsequently presented the project plans and request for variances to the Planning Board at the July 27, 2017 meeting at which time we received several substantive comments and suggestions from Planning Board members. As a result, Mr. Maney reviewed the design with the project team and elected to modify the proposed development. The project now includes eight townhouses, each with a two car garage and two surface parking spaces. We believe that the revisions to the project directly address the design guidance provided by staff or by members of both the ZBA and the Planning Board and significantly reduce the requested variance relief. A two unit and three unit building front on Marvin Alley and a three unit building fronts on Cherry Street. All vehicular access is from Cherry Street which allows for entry to the garages and surface parking spaces from an internal driveway. No cars access individual garages directly from either Cherry Street or Marvin Alley. The proposed project does not now require a density variance since nine dwelling units are allowed by UR -4 Zone District regulations and only eight are proposed. The site plan as designed, however, still requires front yard setback variances for all eight units (three buildings), side yard setback variances for three of the units, and maximum building coverage (25% is allowed and 27.7% is proposed). Included in this revised project application are the following items: 1. Updated Design Development Plans for the Buildings and Site Layout; 2. Updated and Expanded EAF (Long Form) with Project Narrative and Stormwater Narrative; 480 Broadway, Suite LL -14 I PO Box 272 1 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 1 518.832.4005 3. Updated Variance Application; 4. Updated Exterior Materials Narrative. The following items from our June 22, 2017 submission are hereby referenced and remain as valid components of the application: 1. Traffic Report (for a fourteen unit project); 2. Photographs of the Project Site; 3. Updated Site Survey. We request that this revised application be placed on the September 28, 2017 Planning Board Agenda to discuss the SEQR determination. Thank you for your assistance. Yours truly, S. Jeffrey Anthony, RLA, ASLA Principal Landscape Architect For Studio A I Landscape Architecture, D.P.C. Cc: Anthony Maney, Esq.

Whether the benefit sought by the applicant can be achieved by other feasible means. Identify what alternatives to the variance have been explored (alternative designs, attempts to purchase land, etc.) and why they are not feasible. The benefit cannot be achieved by any means other than an area variance. The combination of the 18 Cherry Street and 38 Marvin Alley lots results in an awkward configuration, that, when applying required yard setbacks, leaves an irregular shaped allowable building area on the property. This awkward shape and resultant size of buildable area creates severe constraints on the use of the parcel. The most practical approach to siting buildings on the site is to consider two locations for development, one facing Cherry Street and one facing Marvin Alley. This allows for vehicular site entry from Cherry Street and internal vehicular circulation to be accommodated to access garages and parking. Over the past several months the applicant has explored several alternative designs which were discussed with City Planning Department Staff. Modifications to the design were made in response to their comments. Initially, the project only included the Cherry Street parcel. As a result of these discussions the applicant arranged to acquire additional land (38 Marvin Alley) which reduced the need for various and/or eliminated certain variances from the original proposal. Additionally, the project included two condominium buildings. A four story, six unit building was proposed facing Cherry Street and a five story, eight unit building was proposed facing Marvin Alley. As a result of comments from both the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning Board, this option is no longer proposed. (See Project Narrative). Land values in the City of Saratoga Springs have significantly escalated over the past years. As such, development projects must yield a return on investment capable of overcoming such land acquisition costs. The project site also imposes certain additional development costs which must be overcome including, but not limited to, demolition of the existing structure at 18 Cherry Street; removal and replacement of building debris and poor fill in previous building foundations; installation of new curbs, sidewalks, street trees and lighting along the Cherry Street and Marvin Alley frontages; stormwater management which is impacted by poor site soils and must be accomplished with alternative practices; and installation of new water and sewer utilities. An effort was made by the client to additionally acquire 16 Cherry Street, however, this has not been successful. This would have added land area to the site. This additional land would have reduced or eliminated some of the requested side yard variances; increased open space in the site plan; increased pervious area and removed an unsightly building. Negotiations with the current landowner over price failed due to the escalating cost of land in the city. The above conditions impact project development costs which must be compensated for in the projects prospectus, thereby mandating a certain level or amount of sales revenue. The project, 480 Broadway, Suite LL -14 I P.O. Box 272 1 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 1 518.832.4005 as now proposed, responds to this need as well as the need to be constructed to a quality level commensurate to other development in the city and surrounding neighborhood. As such, the eight proposed dwelling units and unit sizes justifies the development costs and reasonable return on investment (land acquisition, demolition, site conditions, new construction). Additional land was attempted to be acquired which would have lessened or eliminated some variance requests. The combined site and related setbacks has resulted in an awkward developable area which precludes reasonable use of the site without variances. 2. Whethergranting the variance will produce an undesirable change in the character of the neighborhood or a detriment to nearby properties. Granting the variance will not create a detriment to nearby properties or an undesirable change in the neighborhood character for the following reasons: The granting of the requested area variances will not produce an undesirable change to the neighborhood character, and to the contrary, will result in a positive improvement to the neighborhood. The 18 Cherry Street site is occupied by a 4 -unit apartment building that is in an extreme state of disrepair and lack of site maintenance. The building is in need of painting and repair. The site is not groomed, lawn not maintained, parking is in a rutted and unorganized state, and presents a blighted visual situation. The 38 Marvin Alley site is vacant with overgrown grasses and shrubs and litter. The proposed project will remove all blighted and overgrown vegetation and non -maintained conditions on the property, including the building. The project, as designed, will replace the vacant blighted conditions with eight new townhouses and extensive, well maintained landscaping. New curbing, sidewalks, street trees and lighting will be installed along Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. This will result in a significant improvement to the visual character of the neighborhood. The eight townhouses in three buildings are three stories tall with roof top lofts and garden terraces and will be in character with adjacent structures. Masie Center is proximate to the site to the south and structures to the south east of Marvin Alley are also taller in height including several condominium buildings on Railroad Place. As such, the project site is located in a transition area from downtown (with tall structures) to urban residential areas to the west. The proposed townhouses are similar in size, height, and bulk with the recently approved City Square development across Cherry Street from the project site. The City Square development is under construction across Cherry Street from the project site. This is a very dense townhouse, condominium, and retail project that include 41 housing units and 4000 square feet of retail space. In addition, the existing Allerdice Building Supply retail facility and lumberyard is to the northwest of the project site. This is a grandfathered use but is out of character with the residential neighborhood. As such, the proposed project will not only be conducive to the character of the existing neighborhood but will actually improve the neighborhood character. 3. Whether the variance is substantial. The requested variance is not substantial for the following reasons: While the request for area variances for the project may appear to be substantial based upon the revisions to the proposed project design, it is actually not. As stated in Response 1 above, the combined site has a unique and awkward configuration which makes it difficult to develop without variances. A 25 foot front yard setback is required along both Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. 3.85 feet is proposed along Cherry Street which is similar to existing structures at 16 Cherry Street and at the corner of Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. 9.95 feet is proposed along Marvin Alley which is greater than the structure at the corner of Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. The side yard setbacks are not substantial. A 20 foot side yard set back is required. Three of the units do not meet this requirement. Unit 1 is 7.89 feet, Unit 5 is 9.07 feet and Unit 6 is 8.16 feet from the side property line. The maximum building coverage variance is also not substantial. 25% is required, 27.7% is proposed. This variance would have been substantially reduced or eliminated if the 16 Cherry Street parcel would have been obtained. However, as proposed, this constitutes only a 9% increase in building coverage. 4. Whether the variance will ha ve adverse physical or environmental effects on neighborhood or district. The requested variance will not ha ve an adverse physical or environmental effect on the neighborhood or district for the following reasons: The proposed project will not have an adverse physical or environmental effect on the neighborhood. The physical shape, height, and visual character of the eight proposed townhouses in three buildings will be compatible with the character of the neighborhood which is in transition from downtown to urban residential. Adjacent uses include the Masie Center and City Square mixed use PUD which is under construction. It will replace a derelict existing apartment building and vacant lot. The project, as proposed, will raze all existing derelict conditions on the 18 Cherry Street and 38 Marvin Alley properties. They will be replaced with three townhouse buildings which will remove such blighted conditions. The townhouses will be stone/brick clad structures compatible with other buildings in the neighborhood and district. From an environmental impact perspective, the project will result in a visually pleasing environment with extensively manicured urban landscape. Stormwater will be managed with state-of-the-art green practices where none existing today. The streetscapes on Cherry Street and Marvin Alley will be reconstructed with new curbs, sidewalks, street trees and lighting. This will add to the improved visual character of the neighborhood. In addition, the project will be serviced with new utilities including sanitary sewer and potable water. 5. Whether the alleged difficulty was self-created (although this does not necessarily preclude the granting of an area variance). Explain whether the alleged difficulty was or was not self-created. The difficulty is not self-created. Required setbacks in the UR -4 zone district when applied to the site result in a condition in which a very awkward shaped area exists for building development without the issuance of setback variances. landscape architecture stud*10A + Planning Revised Project Narrative 18 Cherry Street & 38 Marvin Alley Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 The townhouse project on Cherry Street/Marvin Alley is being proposed in support of the ongoing revitalization effort of the west side of Saratoga Springs. The townhouses will accent the classic carriage house aesthetics which is characteristic of Saratoga Springs, while blending modern elements which have assisted development in the area in recent years. The development will consist of eight townhouse units in three buildings. A three unit building will front on Cherry Street and a two unit and three unit building will front on Marvin Alley. Each unit will include a two car garage on the ground level and two surface parking spaces. There will be vehicular access via a driveway from Cherry Street which will provide internal access to the garages and surface parking spaces. There will be no direct vehicular access from either Cherry Street or Marvin Alley to the garages or surface parking. The townhouses will be three stories tall with a partial loft and garden terraces on portions of the roofs. The garden terraces will be green roofs. Pedestrian access will be directly from Cherry Street and Marvin Alley which will be finished with curb, grass strip, street trees, period lights, and sidewalks. The entire site periphery will be enclosed with an ornamental picket fence and gates which will not be a solid structure. The interior courtyard of the site will be lighted with low level dark sky fixtures. The site will be generously landscaped. Sewer and potable water utilities will be provided by municipal services. Stormwater will be accommodated by "green infrastructure" practices as practical. A conceptual Stormwater Management Report is included in the expanded EAF long form. The revised project is a direct response to comments and suggestions made by Zoning Board of Appeals members at the April 10, 2017 meeting and by Planning Board members at the July 27, 2017 Planning Board meeting where the original plan, two condominium buildings with a total of fourteen units (eight units in a five story building on Marvin Alley and six units in a four story building on Cherry Street), was presented. As a result of these comments that plan has been substantially modified. A summary of those comments and a response to them follows: Comment 1— Why is the five story building with eight units proposed to be located on Marvin Alley and not Cherry Street? 480 Broadway, Suite LL -14 I P.O. Box 272 1 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 1 518.832.4005 Response 1— The five story building is no longer proposed, nor is the four story building. Comment 2 —The requested density variance seems large. Nine units are allowed by UR - 4 Zone District Regulations and fourteen are proposed. This is five units in excess of that allowed, or a 55% increase in density. Response 2 — Comment noted. The revised townhouse project proposes eight townhouses or one less than the density than allowed by the UR -4 Zone District. Comment 3 —The proposed height of the two buildings, four and five stories, is not in context with buildings in the surrounding area and the Franklin Street Historic District. Response 3 — Comment noted. The proposed townhouse buildings are three stories in height with a partial loft and garden terrace on portions of the roof and are visually in character with the adjacent neighborhood structures. Comment 4 —The applicant should consider building townhouses. Response 4 — Comment noted. Townhouses are now proposed. Comment 5 — Fourteen dwelling units in two large structures cannot fit on the site. The site is too small. Response 5—Comment noted. The two large condominium buildings with fourteen units have been eliminated from the plan. The proposed project now consists of eight townhouses. Even though the project now conforms to the allowable density, area variances for front yard and side yard setbacks and percent building coverage are still required. However, these variances are for less relief than previously proposed and the scale and relationship of buildings to streetscape is in character with adjacent surrounding buildings. Comment 6 —The buildings are too massive. They should be scaled down and the architecture redesigned. Response 6 — Comment noted. The original five and four story buildings have been eliminated from the plan. The redesigned buildings are three story townhouses with roof top lofts and garden terraces that are in scale with the mass, height, and character of the surrounding buildings in the neighborhood. Comment 7 —There should be an alternative design prepared that conforms to the allowed zoning density. Response 7 — See Response 2. Additionally, the redesigned project now conforms to the allowed density in the UR -4 Zone District. Comment 8 — Marvin Alley is dangerous for pedestrians. Safety features are needed such as sidewalks and the traffic flow even being made one way. Garages in the buildings should not be accessed from Marvin Alley by cars since this conflicts with any sidewalk that may be built and pedestrian movements. Response 8 — Sidewalks and curbs are proposed to be constructed on both the Cherry Street and Marvin Alley street frontages of the property. The project now proposes no direct vehicular access into garages from Marvin Alley nor Cherry Street. As to making Marvin Alley one way traffic, the project sponsor is agreeable to this suggestion. However, this action is totally at the discretion of the City of Saratoga Springs. Comment 9 —Access to the indoor parking on the ground level is not desirable as proposed. The parking should be in a basement level with access via ramps internally on the site. Response 9 —The proposed condominium buildings have been eliminated from the plan. All access to the proposed garages in the townhouses is via internal driveways on the site. Comment 10 — The Preservation Foundation sent a letter with comments on the design which should be addressed. Response 10 —The previous design, which was the subject of this letter, is no longer proposed. The revisions to the project design are responsive to the concerns of the Preservation Foundation. Several comments and suggestions made by Planning Board members at the July 27, 2017 meeting remain to be resolved as they may no longer be necessary for the revised project. They include: 1. The project should be reviewed by the Design Review Commission. 2. There may be issues with the sanitary sewer line running from Marvin Alley through the site to Cherry Street. Note: This is a technical issue that will be addressed during site plan review following approval of the variances. 3. Due to poor site soils, a CDS system for stormwater management and under pavement retention (storage) in structures was proposed. The City will not maintain these systems. Note: Stormwater management will be engineered during site plan review and the system refined once additional soil and existing stormwater infrastructure is studied. There will be Condominium Association for this project that will be responsible for overall site and exterior building maintenance. Even if a CDS unit is required, there will be money budgeted annually in the Condominium Association operating proforma to retain a maintenance service for this device. 4. A shadow study should be performed to assess the impact on the neighborhood. Note: The four and five story buildings are no longer proposed so the need for shadow studies may be questionable. 5. A visual impact assessment should be performed from adjacent areas using helium balloons flown at the proposed building corners. Note: The four and five story buildings are no longer proposed so the need for a visual impact assessment may be questionable.

This project requires area variances from the minimum lot size per dwelling unit, maximum principal building coverage (two structures combined), minimum front yard setback on both Cherry Street and Marvin Alley, and rear yard setback requirements. The ZBA expressed initial concerns relating to the increase in density (maximum 9 units permitted, 14 units proposed), mass, scale and height of the structures within the context of the neighborhood, and the fronting of one of the buildings on the alley (4.5' from front property line). The ZBA also identified general site concerns of suitability of Marvin Alley as two-way access. The project was classified as an Unlisted Action with the Planning Board identified as an involved agency. The ZBA deferred Lead Agency status to the Planning Board if you should seek it.

This evaluation is based on the Schematic Site Plan dated May 3, 2017 prepared by BBL Construction Services and HCP Architects, included as an Attachment to this letter. A. Project Summary and Existing Conditions The proposed project indudestheoonstructionofI4condominiumunhsintwobui|dings a building along Marvin Alley with eight units and a four-story building along Cherry Street with six units. Primary access to the site is proposed via a full access driveway on Cherry Street. Four of the eight units along Marvin Alley will have direct access onto Marvin Alley. The existing site hes one single family home, which would beremoved. The project is expected to begin construction soon after approvals are obtained from the City. Cherry Street \sa local City street providing east+westaccess between Franklin Street and Beekman Street 'just north of NY Route 29 (Washington Street). In the project vicinity, Cherry Street provides a single travel lane in each direction with approximately 23 feet of pavement and no shoulders. There isasection ofsidewalk along the project frontage, on the north side of the roadway west of the site between Walworth Street and Beekman Street and on the south side ofCherry Street for a small section adjacent to Beekman Street. Land uses along Cherry Street are primarily residential with two lumberyards to the west ofthe site. There is no posted speed limit on Cherry Street; therefore, the City speed limit of 30 -mph Marvin Alley iselocal City street providing north -south access between Division Street and NY Route 29 (Washington Street). Marvin Alley is a narrow roadway with approximately 13 feet ofpavement and no shoulders. There are nosidewalks along Marvin Alley. Marvin Alleys primary function istoprovide access to parking and is not meant for through travel. There is no posted speed limit on Marvin Alley; therefore, 100 Great Oaks Boulevard Suite 118 Engineers | Scientists | Planners | Designers Albany, New York 12203 P 518.389.3600 Mr. Anthony m1aney Ret 2602I.00 June 2,ZOz7 Page the City speed limit of30-mphapplies. It islikely that vehicles on this alley are traveling at speeds much lower than 30 -mph. Transit in the study area isprovided bvthe Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA). Bus route 451 travels north of the site along Church Street and Routes 450, 452, and S40 (the Northway Express) travel along Broadway east ofthe site. Routes 45O,4SI,and 452provide service daily while the Northwav Express provides only weekday service. Traffic Evaluation The peak hour trip generating characteristics of the site were estimated based on data published by the Institute ofTransportation Engineers OTB in the 9th edition of the Trip Generation Manual. Morning and afternoon peak travel at the she was estimated using ITE land use code 230 for Residential Condominium/Townhouse and are summarized below inTable I. TableI—TripGenemation Summary Number AM Peak Hour PM Peak Hour Land Use of Units Enter Exit Total Enter Exit Total The proposed residential development is anticipated to generate 11 trips during the morning peak hour and Z2trips during the afternoon peak hour. This magnitude oftraffic isless than the NYSDOT and ITE volume th�ho|d�oflOOvehic|ethpsgenenatedonanyonel �ntersection approach for off-site intersection analysis. This guidance was developed as e tool to identify locations where the magnitude of traffic generated has the potential to impact operations at off-site intersections and screen out locations that do not meet the 100'vehic|e threshold and are unlikely to require mitigation. Based on the magnitude of traffic generated at the proposed site, the traffic generated at the site will be accommodated for bvthe adjacent roadway network. Residents on the site will have several options to access the surrounding roadway network including via Marvin Alley to Division Street in the north and Washington Street (nthe south and via Cherry Street to Franklin Street in the east and Walworth Street or Beekman Street in the west. The site generated trips were distributed onto the adjacent roadway network based on a review of available traffic volume and travel pattern data in the study area to identify the maximum number of trips that would be added to the adjacent roadway network asaresult ofthe project. Ingeneral, it)santicipated that amaximum of7596 of the site generated trips will travel to and from the east towards Franklin Street when traveling to and from the site while the remaining 2596 could travel to and from the west towards Walworth Street. This distribution of travel results in a maximum of 8 AM and 8 PM peak hour vehicle trips traveling to and from the east and a maximum of 3 AM and 3PMpeak hour trips traveling toand from the west. Asthe site generated trips continue to distribute beyond Cherry Street and Marvin Alley, the magnitude of traffic associated with the site on other surrounding roadways will be less.

Summary and Conclusions The proposed project indudesthcconstructionofI4condominiumunitson[herryStreetendManvin Alley inthe City ofSaratoga Springs. Primary access tothe site isprovided via efull access driveway on Cherry Street with access tofour units directly onto Marvin Alley.

Whether the benefit sought be the applicant can be achieved by other feasible means Identify what alternatives to the variance have been explored (alternative designs, attempts to purchase land, etc.) and why they are not feasible. The benefit cannot be achieved by any means other than an area variance. The combination of the 18 Cherry Street and 38 Marvin Alley lots results in an awkward configuration, that, when applying required yard setbacks, leaves an irregular shaped allowable building area on the property. This awkward shape and resultant size of buildable area creates severe constraints on the use of the parcel. The most practical approach to siting buildings on the site is to consider two locations for development, one facing Cherry Street and one facing Marvin Alley. This allows for site entry and internal vehicular circulation to be accommodated. Over the past several months the client has explored several alternative designs which were discussed with City Planning Department Staff. Modifications to the design were made in response to their comments. Initially, the project only included the Cherry Street parcel. As a result of these discussions the applicant arranged to acquire additional land (38 Marvin Alley) which reduced the need for various and/or eliminated certain variances from the original proposal. Land values in the City of Saratoga Springs have significantly escalated over the past years. As such, development projects must yield a return on investment capable of overcoming such land acquisition costs. The project site also imposes certain additional development costs which must be overcome including, but not limited to, demolition of the existing structure at 18 Cherry Street; removal and replacement of building debris and poor fill in previous building foundations; installation of new curbs, sidewalks, street trees and lighting along the Cherry Street and Marvin Alley frontages; stormwater management which is impacted by poor site soils and must be accomplished with alternative practices; and installation of new water and sewer utilities. An effort was made by the client to additionally acquire 16 Cherry Street, however, this has not been successful. This would have added land area to the site. No additional units would have been proposed. This additional land would have reduced the requested density variance; increased open space in the site plan; increased pervious area and removed an unsightly building. Negotiations with the current landowner over price failed due to the escalating cost of land in the city. The above conditions impact project development costs which must be compensated for in the projects prospectus, thereby mandating a certain level or amount of sales revenue. The project, as proposed, responds to this need as well as the need to be constructed to a quality level commensurate to other development in the city and surrounding neighborhood. 480 Broadway, Suite LL -14 I P.O. Box 272 1 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 1 518.832.4005 As such, the 14 proposed dwelling units and unit sizes justifies the development costs and reasonable return on investment (land acquisition, demolition, site conditions, new construction). Additional land was attempted to be acquired which would have lessened or eliminated some variance requests. The combined site and related setbacks has resulted in an awkward developable area which precludes reasonable use of the site without variances. 2. Whethergranting the variance will produce an undesirable change in the character of the neighborhood or a detriment to nearby properties. Granting the variance will not create a detriment to nearby properties or an undesirable change in the neighborhood character for the following reasons: The granting of the requested area variances will not produce an undesirable change to the neighborhood character, and to the contrary, will result in a positive improvement to the neighborhood. The 18 Cherry Street site is occupied by a 4 -unit apartment building that is in an extreme state of disrepair and lack of site maintenance. The building is in need of painting and repair. The site is not groomed, lawn not maintained, parking in a rutted and unorganized state, and presents a blighted visual situation. The 38 Marvin Alley site is vacant with overgrown grasses and shrubs and litter. The proposed project will remove all blighted and overgrown vegetation and non -maintained conditions on the property, including the building. The project, as designed, will replace the vacant blighted conditions with two new condominium buildings and extensive, well maintained landscaping. New curbing, sidewalks, street trees and lighting will be installed along Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. This will result in a significant improvement to the visual character of the neighborhood. All but 4 required parking spaces for the condominiums will be accommodated by internal parking garages on the ground level of each of the two buildings. 30% of the site will remain as open green space which will include a small "park -like" area on the southeast side of the site along Marvin Alley. The "park" will offer an outdoor gazebo and picnic facilities. Additionally, both buildings will have roof top terraces/gardens which will accommodate the residents additional outdoor recreational needs. While the two buildings are four and five stories tall respectively, they will be in character with adjacent structures. Masie Center is proximate to the site to the south and structures to the south east of Marvin Alley are also taller in height including several condominium buildings on Railroad Place. As such, the project site is located in a transition area from downtown (with tall structures) to urban residential areas to the northwest. The proposed buildings will be stone clad on the first floors, and brick clad on the upper floors. They will both have roof -top terrace/gardens for the residents. As such, they will be visually compatible with other downtown buildings. The recently approved City Square development is under construction across Cherry Street from the project site. This is a very dense townhouse, condominium, retail project that include 41 housing units and 4000 square feet of retail space. In addition, the existing Allerdice Building Supply retail facility and lumberyard is to the northwest of the project site. This is a grandfathered use but is out of character with the residential neighborhood. As such, the proposed project will not only be conclusive to the character of the existing neighborhood but will actually improve the neighborhood character. 3. Whether the variance is substantial. The requested variance is not substantial for the following reasons: While the request for four area variances for the project may appear to be substantial, it is actually not. As stated in Response 1 above, the combined site has a unique and awkward configuration which makes it difficult to develop without variances. The front yard variances are not substantial. A 25 foot front yard setback is required along both Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. 5'-6" is proposed along Cherry Street which is similar to existing structures at 18 Cherry Street and at the corner of Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. 15'-9" is proposed along Marvin Alley which is greater than the structure at the corner of Cherry Street and Marvin Alley. The maximum building coverage variance is also not substantial. 25% is required, 31% is proposed. This variance would have been substantially reduced or eliminated if the 16 Cherry Street parcel would have been obtained. However, as proposed, this constitutes only a 6% increase in building coverage. The most significant area variance requested is for lot size. 3000 sf/du is required and 1980 sf/du is proposed. As such, 9DU's are allowed by right and 14 DU's are proposed. While this may appear to be substantial, it is actually not. It is approximately a 33% increase. However, one must realize that the proposed dwelling units are proposed in 4 and 5 story buildings, both within the allowed building height in the UR -3 zone. All but 4 of the required parking spaces will be housed within the existing buildings. As compared to other recently approved projects adjacent to the site, the City Square PUD has 15 dwelling units per acre of land as compared to 24 units per acre for the proposed project. However, the City Square project is proposed to have 4000 square feet of retail space in addition to the residential units. Additionally, the City Square project is approved for 22 on-site car parking spaces. This equals 16 cars per acre. The proposed Cherry Street project proposes 4 on-site car parking spaces. This equals 7 cars per acre. Similarly, condominiums along Railroad Place provide for most parking in indoor spaces. As such, while appearing to be dense, cars are accommodated indoor and not visible on-site. 4. Whether the variance will ha ve adverse physical or environmental effects on neighborhood or district. The requested variance will not ha ve an adverse physical or environmental effect on the neighborhood or district for the following reasons: The proposed project will not have an adverse physical or environmental effect on the neighborhood. The physical shape, height and visual character of the two proposed condominium buildings will be compatible with the character of the neighborhood which is in transition from downtown to urban residential. Adjacent uses include the Masie Center and City Square mixed use PUD which is under construction. It will replace a derilict existing apartment building and vacant lot. The project, as proposed, will raze all existing derilict conditions on the 18 Cherry Street and 38 Marvin Alley properties. They will be replaced with two condominium buildings which will remove such blighted conditions. The condominiums will be stone/brick clad structures compatible with other buildings in the neighborhood and district. From an environmental impact perspective, the project will result in a visually pleasing environment with extensively manicured urban landscape. Stormwater will be managed with state-of-the-art green practices where none existing today. The streetscapes on Cherry Street and Marvin Alley will be reconstructed with new curbs, sidewalks, street trees and lighting. This will add to the improved visual character of the neighborhood. In addition, the project will be serviced with new utilities including sanitary sewer and potable water. 5. Whether the alleged difficulty was self-created (although this does not necessarily preclude the granting of an area variance). Explain whether the alleged difficulty was or was not self-created. The difficulty is not self-created. Required setbacks in the UR -4 zone district when applied to the site result in a condition in which a very awkward shaped area exists for building development without the issuance of setback variances. While the requested minimum lot size variance may appear to be self-created, it is not. Increased land values in Saratoga Springs, required off-site improvement costs (curbs, sidewalks, street trees, lighting), demolition costs, and the need to develop new structures and site facilities that are compatible with the neighborhood all contribute to higher development costs. This requires greater density to allow for a reasonable return on investment. Cherry Street Narrative The dual condo development on Cherry Street is being proposed to assist in the current revitalization of the west side of Saratoga Springs. Located on parcels between Cherry Street and Marvin Alley the suburban urban condo buildings would be built to both accent the classic carriage house aesthetics which Saratoga Springs is known for, while blending modern elements which have helped development on Railroad Place thrive in recent years. The development will consist of two buildings, one that will be 5 stories tall which will be set back on the Marvin Alley parcel, and the other, a 4 story building which will act to transition the neighborhood from the 3+ story town houses that are being developed at City Square and the 5 and 6 story buildings on Division Street which have become an anchor for residents and businesses in downtown Saratoga Springs. The project will incorporate modern storm water management practices, such as a green roof space, ground level green space for residents, permeable pavement surfaces, and other techniques. There will be sufficient off street parking spaces for all residents, which will be split between garage spaces, and traditional off street parking spots. The development will not impact traffic, and will provide total unique living spaces for people looking to make Saratoga Springs their home.
