Midtown property owners now have additional options for development as part of Midtown Pattern Overlay Districts. The overlay districts, also known as Pattern Zoning, allow the property owners to receive architect-designed pre-approved construction plans for four different buildings intended specifically for the Midtown area.
On Aug. 6, 2020 the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the Midtown Pattern Overlay Districts, specifying that pattern zoning be applied to properties in Areas 1-4 of Midtown, as identified in the recently approved Midtown Area Plan.
One of the most unique aspects of the recently adopted Midtown Area Plan – Pattern Zoning – was given a Merit Award in the Emerging Projects category from the Center for New Urbanism (CNU) as part of the organization’s 2020 Charter Awards.
