Review Type


Dear Mr. McGill:

During its meeting of 18 December, the Commission reviewed the proposed alterations and additions to the Mary E. Switzer Building at 330 C Street, SW. The members present commended the architect on the conservative design approach that is a logical extension of the existing building. While the Commission had no quorum at the meeting, the informal approval should be· considered sufficient for proceeding with further design development. Future perimeter security measures should be pursued through a landscape alternative, rather than bollards, due to the extensive setback distance of the building.

The Commission looks forward to further review of this project, including the security and landscape plan. As always, the staff is available should you require assistance.
