PLN12-0199 1317 Eastshore Drive (Action Date 9-11-14)

 

The project consists of a 936 square foot second story addition over the existing rear portion of a single-family residence.  The addition would increase the overall height of the house at the addition from approximately 17.5 feet to 25 feet.  A small portion of the existing house encroaches into the required rear yard (twenty feet) at a maximum of 2.5 feet at the right rear corner due to the angled rear property line.  The project is located within an R-1 (One Family Residential) zoning district.  Because the proposal includes a second story addition to the existing single-family dwelling, a finding must be made pursuant to AMC 30-5.7 (l) that no adverse effects such as shading, or view blockage would occur on an adjoining property.  A shade study determined no adverse effect due to additional shading compared to the existing condition would occur.
