Review Type


Dear Mr. Vogel:

In its meeting of 21 May, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed a concept design for a new U.S. Park Police District 1 Substation at 1100 Ohio Drive, SW, in East Potomac Park. The Commission approved the general siting and character of the building, requesting additional documentation for a full concept submission.

The Commission members expressed appreciation for the care taken in developing the design, commenting that the building's character would be appropriately subdued and respectful of the site, and that the articulation of its facades would present a suitable identity for this utilitarian facility. They commented that the building and associated fenced vehicular area would be an extensive insertion into the landscape, a perception that could be mitigated through further design refinement.

For the next submission, the Commission requested further details of the architectural elements and the site. As always, the staff is available to assist you in development of the project.


/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
