The regular meeting of the Syracuse Board of Zoning Appeals was Thursday night and three variances were approved.
PW Realty LLC’s petition for a variance to allow a new industrial building to be constructed was approved. It requested employee parking and loading and unloading facilities in a street yard, where ordinance requires them to be in the rear yard and to allow 190 employee parking spaces where ordinance requires 250. The property is located at 813 W. Brooklyn St.
The property is the site of Poly-Wood Inc. The company is undergoing a major expansion project, estimated at $23 million. “It’s moving forward at a very rapid pace,” said attorney Steve Snyder.
The parking was not granted a variance but will allow for 250 parking spots across the street. The loading and unloading portion of the variance was approved.
A second variance was also granted. Patrick Industries Inc.’s petition for a variance to allow an industrial building to be constructed 11 feet from the south right of way was approved. The property is located at 205 W. Railroad St.
It wants to build a storage building for raw storage.
The third case was approved. KSK Real Estate’s petition is for a variance to allow an additional permitted commercial use to be added to a property resulting in three commercial uses on a commercial tract of ground. The property is located at 110 E. Main St., Syracuse.
The building, located in downtown Syracuse, will be the site of the new chamber office and an upscale food market. The third use, located upstairs, is unknown at this time, the new owners said.
The next meeting is at 6 p.m. June 18, at Syracuse Town Hall.
