726 Jackson Place, NW (on Lafayette Park)
Dear Ms. Wright:
In its public meeting of 17 September conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the final design for security-related alterations to the east entrance and courtyard of 726 Jackson Place, NW, part of the New Executive Office Building complex on the west side of Lafayette Square.
The Commission appreciates the responsiveness of the applicant team in refining the design following its previous review. In its approval action, the Commission recommended the mullion pattern illustrated in Alternate 2 for infilling the entrance portals on Jackson Place, as shown in the submitted materials.
As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
