Partial demolition and new 2-story rear addition with basement
Recommend AGAINST concept design for two-story rear addition with basement as proposed. Although there is no objection to a general concept of an addition, the historic structure must be preserved in its entirety, the addition must be subservient to the historic building and attach to it via a hyphen, and the basement at rear yard must be deleted to retain open space for in-ground landscaping. File separate concept application with revised design for review by the Commission when ready.
