CB2 10/14/2021:

  1. The existing condition is two divided pane windows and a divided pane horizontal skylight which replaced an original loading; and
  2. The proposed replacement windows are operable casement sheet glass in six sections and the skylight windows are replaced with operable sliding solid glass panels that did not appear to have any provisions for the safety of passersby at the void created at near grade level when in the open position; and
  3. The plate glass operable casement windows of unsuitable design and proportion and the skylight are without historic precedent and are ill suited to the building; and
  4. The proposed application is in direct conflict with an agreement in connection with the approval of a liquor license that includes the following stipulations, all of which are in direct conflict with the changes proposed in the application:
    1. All doors and windows will be closed at all times except for patron ingress and egress.
    2. Will not install or have French doors, operable windows or open facades.
    3. Will not make changes to the existing façade except to change signage or awning.

Therefore be it resolved that CB2, Man. recommends denial of the application of a modification that is in no way respectful of the historic character of the building and the district and is in direct conflict with binding stipulations in the liquor license for the premises with respect to operable windows and changes to the existing facade.

Vote: Unanimous, with 42 Board members in favor.
