The new zoning included a Preliminary Development Plan (PDP) that allowed an additional 100,000 square feet of building area and a new outdoor pool (the existing campus includes approximately 95,000 square feet of floor area and 324 parking spaces). 


The overall PDP allows the following maximum amounts of development:

  • 195,000 square feet of buildings
  • Outdoor pool(s)
  • 481 parking spaces
  • Building height up to 65 feet

The applicant also provided a conceptual rendering of how an outdoor pool might be added to the existing building in accordance with the approved rezoning.
