The developer of a proposed medical office building near a prominent Yukon street corner wants an exception to the city code to build the structure.

2Z Development LLC of Galloway, Ohio is seeking Yukon Board of Adjustments’ approval of a variance request for property in the Yukon Angle Addition, 1111 W Vandament.

The Yukon Angle is a multi-use commercial development north of W Vandament Avenue on the west side of Garth Brooks Boulevard.

A 3,080 building just east of First Place Boulevard is shown in the site plan for the “Yukon Medwise Development.”

The Yukon Board of Adjustments will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9 to hear the applicant’s request for a variance to the city’s 25-foot building setback requirement in a commercial zoning district.

A planned “medical professional office building” would encroach about 3.14 feet into the west 25-foot building setback abutting First Place Boulevard.

“Per the tenant’s request, we needed to orient the building for the most visibility to Garth Brooks Boulevard,” according to the Dec. 8th variance application. “There is also a shared access easement along the east boundary of the site which can’t be impacted.

“Lastly, there is a shared parking easement along the north of the site which also can’t be impacted and prohibits the building from being rotated.”

The applicant has requested a “minor” variance to the 25-foot building setback requirement “due to these constraints.”

The Yukon Planning Commission, in August 2022, approved a lot split in the Yukon Angle Addition to divide lot 1B, block 1 at 1111 W Vandament into two parcels. The site is now a surface parking lot.

“The property is proposed to be developed for a health-related retail use,” Westmark Investors’ agent Bill Reid told planning commissioners.

Existing pavement would be removed to make way for the new medical office building.

The proposed development will include a dumpster enclosure for trash collection, utility servicing to the new building and new pavement/striping for the building’s parking area.

Twenty-three parking spaces are proposed on the 0.42-acre site zoned C-3 (restricted commercial district), according to the site plan.

The Yukon Angle development includes Dutch Bros. Coffee, Iron Goat Garage and a building that features Rosewood Dental, World Finance, Muscle Supplements, Level 7 Salon, Select Physical Therapy, and several other businesses.

The property previously was a bank, car dealership and vocational technical school.

The Jan. 9th Yukon Board of Adjustments meeting will be inside the council chambers of the Centennial Building, 12 S 5th.

Members are Chairman Joe Horn, Vice Chairman Sherry Huston, Buddy Carpenter, Ken Smith, and Rhonda Dennis.
