Partial demolition, 2-story rear addition
Permit - revision to permit
No objection to issuance of permit for proposed partial demolition of rear additions and new 2-story rear addition as shown in supplemental drawings with revised design dated 22 March 2012 which indicate a shorter hyphen, reconstruction of quoins at the corners of the historic building, relocation of gate on driveway to be closer to the front of the building, and use of half screens. Proposed mechanical equipment on roof must be located where it will not be visible from public thoroughfare. Previously proposed basement excavation/addition was eliminated from this revised design (see case OG 11-069). Note: Any subsequent modifications to the exterior design made during DCRA technical review must be re-submitted to the Commission for approval prior to issuance of permit.
