St. Elizabeths Hospital
2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE
Dear Ms. Knisley:
During its meeting of 20 March 2003, the Commission reviewed and approved the concept for a new treatment facility designed to replace the current John Howard Pavilion on the St. Elizabeth's campus, located at 2700 Martin Luther King, Jr., Avenue, SE. The Commission recommends further study of the approach facade and its relationship to the entrance of the facility, and the screening of the service area.
The Commission looks forward to continued review of this project. As always, the staff is available should you or the design team have questions or need guidance.
/s/Harry G. Robinson III
