Previous Review


Dear Mr. White:

During its meeting of 20 November, the Commission reviewed the revised concept design for an elevator and stairway tower for accessing the Metropolitan Trail overpass at the new New York Avenue Metro Station. The members found the revised design to be much improved and approved the concept unanimously. The Commission is aware of the brief window of time left in which to build the tower before the final stage of construction on the station is completed and, therefore, has delegated to the staff the final approval of the tower's design. We look forward to the submission of the construction documents when ready.

Charles H. Atherton
