Previous Review


Dear Ms. Mavritte:

During its 18 March meeting, the Commission reviewed the final design, material samples and landscape plan for the proposed chancery building for the People's Republic of China to be located on Lot 12 in the International Center on Van Ness Street, NW. The members were happy to see the model that addressed previous concerns. As such, the design was found to be most appropriate for the International Center and for this most important member of our diplomatic community.

We look forward to the review of other modifications to the grounds of the International Center, particularly the proposed parking area in front of the Federal Building, which was not part of this final review, and a landscape master plan for the Center at your earliest convenience.
