A. The sign appears to conform to the regulations for signs in the district as applied to the building; and
B. Its position, though conforming to the regulation for distance from the front façade, visually intrudes onto the sophisticated detailing that turns the corner from the front façade into the secondary façade and can be moved to the north to the north by 5’ to give more space between the detailing and the sign; and
C. The one-story building on the eastern portion of the property is a part of the building and it does not obscure a clear view of the sign if it were moved 5’ to the north; now
Therefore be it resolved that CB2, Man. recommends approval of the sign with the provision that it be moved 5’ to the north and that Landmarks Commission staff ensures that it conforms to regulations for the district as applied to this building.
Vote: Unanimous, with 37 Board members in favor.
J.Lutfy – M.Goldblum, 11-0-0
Action: Approved with modifications
M.Goldblum – D.Chapin, 6-5-0
