Description: 2-story rear addition at basement level - revised design - Permit

RECOMMENDATION: Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for 2-story rear addition as proposed. Although there is no objection to a concept for a 2-story rear addition, the design as proposed does not comply with the Policy on Addition to Small Houses which states that additions should be subservient to original building. Second floor terrace and the parapet around it should be removed and replaced with a sloping roof to help decrease the apparent overall size of the new addition. See recommendations given under previous concept review (O.G. 03-120). Recommend side windows, which are less than 5' 0" from property lines, be deleted. Recommend use of one material for all walls on addition. File separate submission of working drawings for revised design, including dimensions and details, with permit application for review by the Commission when ready. Note is made that permit application is pending final zoning review which should be resolved prior to further review.

Description: New rowhouse building - lot 75 - Concept

RECOMMENDATION: Recommend AGAINST concept design for new rowhouse on lot 75, which, as proposed, has not changed from previous concept design under case O.G. 03-47 which was NOT approved, will be too tall in relation to the two-story houses in the immediate neighborhood and will have an adverse impact on the historic character of this block. The historic character of the existing 1500 block of 32nd Street is defined by mostly two-story houses, the narrow street, and the existing large trees. The original concept design in 1998 proposed only two row houses in this location across the street from a one-story garage and a three-story house at the north corner with the alley. In that context, the concept had been approved. However, the addition of two more row houses to the south greatly increases the adverse impact to the Residentials across the street. Taken as a whole, the group of four houses should be no taller than two-stories high. All measures should be taken to protect the existing large trees, including further setbacks from the curb and careful studies of changes to the grading and installation of sidewalks. File new submission of revised concept design for four two-story high houses on the south end of the street for review by the Commission when ready. Note is made that the ANC 2E has appealed to BZA to review previous zoning rulings on this project.
