Dear Mr. Papke:
In its meeting of 21 June, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the concept design for a new four–story residential building to be located at 3240 Grace Street, NW (case number OG 12–146). The Commission appreciated the straightforward and simple approach to the design of the building and saw merit in both roof options, stepped and gable, within the context of the Georgetown waterfront. The Commission adopted the recommendation of the Old Georgetown Board as follows:
RECOMMENDATION: No objection to general concept design for a four–story plus basement residential building as proposed in stepped flat roof option of supplemental drawings dated 12 June 2012. Recommend a change of plane on the west portion of the south elevation, a raised stone base, elimination of brick piers at metal gate, and development of the service areas and architectural details, including the double–height windows. File new submission of concept design development drawings for review by the Commission.
The Commission looks forward to the Board's review of the design as it is further developed.
/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
