02/23/2021: At today’s LPC public hearing, the Commission took no action. The applicant will revise the proposal and re-present at a future public meeting. The commissioners were mixed as to whether the early 20th century changes to the front facade should remain intact, however, they were unanimous that the studio light should remain even if it needs to be modified. All thought that the mass of the proposed rear addition should be reduced and some objected to the windows in the rear addition. Some suggested moving the “connector” to the east side of the property so as to open the courtyard to the donut.
