Request
A request for a 2' variance from the 5' side and rear setback requirement described in Section 35-310.01 to allow a detached garage to be 3' from the side and rear property lines and eaves to be projected 1' from the side and rear property lines.
Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 509 West Gramercy Place near Breeden Street. Properties on the street are a mix of single family and multi-family dwellings. The applicant is seeking the variance to build a detached garage with projecting architectural features in the rear yard of the property. Because the detached garage will have projecting architectural features, it must abide by the five foot setback, which is why the applicant is applying for a variance.
In 2017, the applicant demolished their accessory structure and is now seeking to build a detached garage. The rear yard has an underground pool and limited space to accommodate the detached garage. The applicant has proposed building the detached garage over two lot lines and has been informed of the need to apply for a Certificate of Determination to build the project as proposed.

Zoning History
The subject property is located within the original thirty-six square mile area of San Antonio and was zoned "A" Single Family District. The subject property was rezoned to "R-1" Single Family Residential District by Ordinance 86704 on September 25, 1997. Under the 2001 Unified Development Code, established by Ordinance 93881, dated May 03, 2001, the property zoned "R-1" Single Family District converted to the current "R-6" Single Family District.
