The elevations prepared by CTA in January 10, 2020, labeled A-01, are approved by the City of Meridian Planning Division as shown in Exhibit D with the following notation:  The applicant requests a design standard exception to the following Goal contained in the Architectural Standards Manual: a) Goal 2.1A “Buildings with rooflines 50-feet in length or greater must incorporate roofline and parapet variations. Variations may include step-downs, step-backs, other modulation, or architectural features such as cornices, ledges, or columns, and must occur in total combination for at least 20% of the façade length. May be averaged over entire façade, but may not exceed 75-feet without a break.” The rear façade of the building incorporates horizontal roofline variations along 20% of the facade length, but two edges are 110’ in length without parapet variation. The rear building façade incorporates modulation (step-in and step-out) with each 12’ foot roll-up door (10 total). Conditions Document 3 Victory Commons Flex Building - DES, CZC - A-2020-0007 b) Goal 5.1I “Untextured concrete panels and prefabricated steel panels are prohibited as field materials for building façades, except when used with a minimum of two other qualifying field materials and meeting all other standard fenestration and material requirements.” The applicant is proposing a mix of modern and classic finishes that includes primarily EIFS and concrete block. The building is also enhanced with a thicker high quality fluted gauge architectural metal cladding and a wood-look cladding to create a clean modern aesthetic that does not create waves as seen on the typical “corrugated metal” that is a lesser gauge of material. The materials are also in compliance with the Development Agreement, which requires additional features of metal panels and faux wood. The fluted architectural metal cladding is used as an accent material on the front and rear facades of the building, which the applicant believes does not conflict with this ASM goal. Staff finds the quality of the materials proposed along with the additional glazing, canopies, and landscaping planters next to the building facade brings a unique modern finish. That, combined with the fact that the Development Agreement allows metal panels, justifies and exemption from the Architectural Standards Manual. 8. The approved site plan, landscape plan and/or elevations may not be altered without prior written approval of the City of Meridian Planning Division. 9. The applicant shall pay any applicable impact fees prior to the issuance of a building permit. 10. If any changes must be made to the site plan to accommodate ACHD requirements, the applicant shall submit a new site plan to the City of Meridian Planning Division for approval prior to issuance of the building permit. 11. The applicant shall complete all required improvements prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy. It is unlawful to use or occupy any building or structure until the Building Official has issued a Certificate of Occupancy. 12. The applicant shall be responsible for obtaining a license agreement and other permissions (s) as required for constructing within any irrigation district easement. 13. Prior to Certificate of Occupancy, the applicant shall record a cross-access/ingress- egress easement to adjoining properties (R5915720030, R5915720042, and R6242270030) and submit copy of said easement to the Planning Division in accord with the provisions of UDC 11-3A-3A2. 14. The applicant shall complete all drive aisles and parking lot improvements located in the northern and central portions of the Victory Commons Subdivision prior to Certificate of Occupancy. 15. The City of Meridian requires that the owner enter into a Warranty Surety Agreement and post a Warranty Surety in the amount of 20% of the total construction cost for all completed public sewer and water infrastructure for a duration of two years. This surety amount will be verified by a line item final cost invoicing provided by the owner to the City.
