2-story rear addition at basement level
Review Type
Permit - revised design


Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for 2-story rear addition as proposed. Although there is no objection to a concept for a 2-story rear addition, the design as proposed does not comply with the Policy on Addition to Small Houses which states that additions should be subservient to original building. Second floor terrace and the parapet around it should be removed and replaced with a sloping roof to help decrease the apparent overall size of the new addition. See recommendations given under previous concept review (OG 03-120). Recommend side windows, which are less than 5' 0" from property lines, be deleted. Recommend use of one material for all walls on addition. File separate submission of working drawings for revised design, including dimensions and details, with permit application for review by the Commission when ready. Note is made that permit application is pending final zoning review which should be resolved prior to further review.
