HPA Number: HPA 05-137
Address: 3246 P Street, NW
Owner(s): DC Public Schools - Addison Elementary School
Description: Aluminum-clad wood replacement windows and doors, iron fences and gates on P St, handicapped access ramps, replacement simulated slate shingle roof and fake chimneys - Concept

RECOMMENDATION: No objection, with recommendations, to general concept design for proposed work on Addison Elementary Public School as shown in supplemental drawings received and dated 28 March 2005. Work on site includes iron fences and gates along P Street, driveway and parking lot with vinyl-clad chain-link fence to separate playground area, and handicapped access ramps. Alterations to building include replacement aluminum-clad wood windows and doors, reconstruction of roof with simulated slate shingles and pre-finished standing seam metal roof. The Commission recommends that window muntin division should allow for vertical lights, or use of 1/1 windows as an acceptable option. In addition, if chimneys cannot be rebuilt of maintainable materials, the preference would be for the removal of the chimneys rather than the proposed fake chimney of brick-faced wood-frame construction, which was NOT approved. File new submission of working drawings, including roof, muntin, window and door construction details, product literature, material and color samples, with permit application for review by the Commission when ready.
