Dear Ms. Black:

In its meeting of 22 January, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the proposed design for the new Safeway grocery store and associated parking structure at 1855 Wisconsin Avenue, NW (case number OG 08-316). The Commission supported the recommendation of the Old Georgetown Board and approved the concept design for the project. The Commission members complimented the designers for the well-conceived exterior detailing which they said must be retained in the final design and construction of the project.

The Commission advised the applicant team to complete the project review with the Old Georgetown Board and delegated final permit review to the staff provided the detailing conforms to the approved concept.
