As of:

  • 12/5/12: Revised application approved at 12/4 LPC meeting, and is now closed. The applicant modified the rear elevation so that the glass wall rises to half the height of what was originally proposed.
  • 11/30/12: LPC public meeting scheduled for 12/4.
  • 11/21/12: LPC did not vote on this application at their 11/20 hearing and instead asked the applicant to return at a later date, TBD, with revisions. The commissioners felt that the proposed full-height glass elevation at the rear was inappropriate to the district, and asked that the applicant retain the upper brick stories in their re-design.
  • 11/15/12: CB2 hearing scheduled for 11/19.
  • 11/5/12: CB2 meeting postponed due to the storm; we will update when we know more.
