1251 Wisconsin Avenue, NW
No objection to issuance of permit for revisions to approved permit for rear addition to include a sloping roof as shown in supplemental drawings received and dated 4 March 2003 ONLY. See previous Recommendation for permit review (OG 01-047). Supplemental drawings indicate retention of second floor on front portion of historic building. Retention of the second floor preserves the character of the historic building as perceived through the new glassy storefront approved separately (see OG 02-342). The Commission is on record opposing the removal of the second floor framing in the front portion of the building, which has been deleted from this application. See review of previous proposal (OG 02-117) in which stoops to doors to the second floor were approved. Mechanical equipment on roof at rear should be retained where originally approved, in a location not visible from the alley. Note is made that permit application is pending final zoning review. Any modifications to the approved design as a result of further review in the permit process must be submitted to the Commission for approval.
