• River Club Park of Commerce, a mixed use development, is at the southeast corner of I-75 and S.R. 70 and extends southward to Linger Lodge Road and east to Braden Woods on ±249 acres.  The site is in the MU (Mixed Use) and P/SP-1 (Public/Semi-Public-1) Future Land Categories and zoned PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use).

• Mr. Robert F. Greene, authorized agent for River Club Holdings, LLC, the Residences at River Club, LLC, and Casvak River Club LLC  (owners), requests approval of an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to consolidate and replace Ordinances PDMU-99-02(G)(R-3), PDMU-99-02(G)(R-4) and PDMU-99-02(G)(R-5) to revise certain stipulations to extend the build-out date, modify use trade-off provision and minimum and maximum exchange limits; provide for office and residential uses in commercial phases other than Phases 2, 4, and 5; increase the maximum number of residential units by 225 for a total of 725 residential units and revise residential use types to include single-family attached, detached and multi-family and a 200-bed (equals 33 units) assisted living facility (a.k.a group care home); revise owner and authorized agent information and various stipulations to update the General Development Plan.

• River Club Park of Commerce DRI and General Development Plan was originally approved in 2001 for a mixed use development and has since been amended (amendments detailed in staff report).
