The owner of the property at 1513 Alexandria Pike can move ahead with his plans to renovate and move into the former auto repair building on the site.

Owner Bradford Pittman requested a nonconforming use change to allow him to use the building to warehouse some of his equipment from his pool business. The Fort Thomas Board of Adjustment approved the request at its meeting on November 23.

Fort Thomas General Services Director Kevin Barbian said he had anticipated the request would pass as it meets the key criteria that the new use be less imposition on the site, especially in terms of traffic. Since the building is primarily going to be used to store equipment and not for sales, the use will have a lesser impact on traffic, noise and other issues at the site.

The property also included two apartments, but it is not yet clear what the plan is for them. The owner may use space at the site for a small office.

The building, which has stood empty, is in great need of repair. Barbian said he’s met with the owner who does not plan major changes but, Barbian noted, "it is in need of a lot of TLC inside and out for which the owner has already started."

The building sits along the US-27 Smart Corridor, designed to decrease traffic congestion, improve transit options, create safer sidewalks and support more technological and environmentally friendly improvements along the route.
