A RESOLUTION APPROVING AN APPLICATION FOR A SPECIAL USE PERMIT MODIFICATION FOR EASTOWNE REDEVELOPMENT – MEDICAL OFFICE BUILDING (MOB) -1, 100 EASTOWNE DRIVE (2018-09-19_R-7) as Amended

Consider a Special Use Permit Modification - Eastowne Redevelopment Medical Office Building - 1, 100 Eastowne Drive.

Town Manager's comments:
UNC Healthcare has proposed to demolish four existing buildings in order to construct a 150,000 square foot, 6-story building for medical office and clinic uses. In addition the applicant has proposed to build a 3,000 sq. ft. utility building and a separate 7.5 level, 1100-space parking garage. The applicant is seeking a rezoning and a Special Use Permit Modification in order to proceed with the project.

During the last two months, staff from UNC Health Care and the Town, including former Town Manager Roger Stancil, worked diligently to develop solutions to the concerns raised in May and June after the initial public hearing. UNC Health Care has also attended an Open House and special meetings with the Chapel Hill Planning Commission, the Community Design Commission, and the Transportation and Connectivity Board to solicit input from the commissioners and residents.

Although there have been a number of revisions to the original proposal, several stand out - the reduction of the height of the building to 90', the inclusion of a "worst case scenario" to the Traffic Impact analysis (TIA) and a commitment by the applicant to revisit the TIA one year after the approval of a Certificate of Occupancy in order to address traffic needs caused by the project. Additionally, UNC Health Care has committed to include the Town and the community in the Master Planning process for future phases of the project. The revisions came about as a result of candid, fruitful discussions and public input, resulting in an improved project for Council's consideration.
