Dear Mr. Ball:

During its meeting of 20 May 2004, the Commission reviewed the developed design for the proposed addition to the parking garage at Union Station. The revisions to the approved concept design were well received. However; the proposed stainless steel screening panels raised too many questions as to their appropriateness in providing the effect that you desire. We fear the  panels will appear more  solid than  translucent. Further study of different ratios of openings to solid within the panels may result in a better solution, even if it leads to finding a different screening device. We will be glad to assist you with a site visit to Union Station to inspect sizeable material samples, including options and alternatives, prior to the next review.

As always, the staff is available to assist you with the next submission.
