Dear Mr. Deatrick:
During its last meeting of 20 October, the Commission reviewed and approved the concept for the plaza at H and 15th Streets, Maryland and Florida Avenues, and Bladensburg and Benning Roads, NE. The Commission members said that the new design is a great improvement from the existing condition and will provide an amenity for residents and pedestrians. As the final design develops, the ground plane should be simplified to create a more cohesive visual environment. Material samples and construction documents should be included in the final submission.
The final review of this project has been delegated to staff. Please submit the project for review when ready. As always, the Commission staff is available should you require further guidance.
