3-story rear addition with basement
Concept - revised design
Recommend AGAINST concept design for proposed rear addition that would necessitate removal of the original rear wall or for proposed addition above roof line as shown in supplemental drawings received and dated 13 June 2003, which are NOT appropriate to the character of the historic building and the district. Recommend further study of skylights as an option to provide natural light. A revised concept design for a rear addition that does not extend over the existing roof line and retains the historic rear wall may be submitted, including floor plans, elevations and sections, for review by the Commission when ready.
