Partial demolition, construction of 5-story addition, addition of third floor above existing building, excavation of lower level
Recommend AGAINST concept design for partial demolition of historic structure and construction of five-story addition as proposed. All components of building, which is a contributing structure to the historic district, must be retained. Recommend further study of an addition behind existing structure that will be subservient to original building and not visible from public thoroughfare or the Key Bridge. Concept case has been inactive for a period of time. File new submission of revised concept design with separate application for review by the Commission when ready.
