I say go with the existing zoning which was, presumably, designated after some master planning and thought.
I agree that the city needs diverse zoning based on a long term vision as well as near term needs. Any zoning can (and should) change when there is a reasonable justification, but spot zoning for a single lot is a bit... mmm shortsighted.

I can't say for sure without being well-versed in the more recent history of the zoning in the area but have to imagine its proximity to rail (which was far more influential / integrated into this part of the city up until, what, the 70s?) influenced its PDR zoning.
