Up-light illumination for walls, over-sizes signs
Review Type


No objection to issuance of permit for proposed sign scheme composed of ONLY two 24–inch high back–lit signs as shown in supplemental drawings received and dated 10 September 2003, to be located between the second and third floor windows on the corner tower, PROVIDED all other signs on building and storefronts are removed. Commission recommends a waiver of the size limit in this case due to the large frontage of this corner building and the elimination of all existing or future sign clutter. Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for proposed light fixtures to up–light and illuminate the walls. See proposed DC study on the Wisconsin Avenue Streetscape Project.
