- 4/16/13: Application approved at today’s public hearing, and is now closed. The applicant returned with amendments to their previous application. The slope of the roof and the bulkhead has been lowered, reducing visibility from the street level. The stoop has been modified to best match the twin building at 81 Horatio Street. The rear façade renovation will be completely rebuilt, but is scaled down from the original proposal. The top two floors’ appearance is being restored to their original look, with the two east windows set farther apart from the singular west window. The bottom three floors will be of a modern design.
- 4/12/13: LPC public meeting scheduled for 4/16. No public testimony will be taken at this time, but your attendance is welcome.
- 3/5/13: The LPC took a vote of no action at today’s public hearing, and asked the applicant to return with revisions at a future public meeting, date TBD. They felt that the stoop details should be identical with those down the block and that the bulkhead be brought down in height. Removing the entire historic rear facade was deemed inappropriate and they ask that the applicant work with staff to come up with a better design.
