06/08/2021: At today’s public meeting, the Commission approved the revised application. All felt that the applicant listened to the Commissions comments and responded appropriately.
4/20/2021: At today’s LPC public meeting, the Commission took no action. The applicant will revise the proposal and re-present at a future public meeting. Commissioner Shamir-Baron was in favor of approval. Commissioners Goldblum and Bland argued that the lot line windows could be more historically appropriate but otherwise approved. Commissioner Jefferson found that the size and massing of the rear addition were too large. Commissioner Lutfy was also concerned about the cascading quality and bulk of the rear addition but wished there were more lot line windows. Commissioner Holford-Smith said the applicant should maintain the original roofline, and that the building’s rear should align with the neighbor. Commissioners Holford-Smith and Goldblum believed the applicant should try to restore the facade windows rather than replace them.
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.
