Replace rear screen porch with 2-story addition
No objection to issuance of permit for proposed two-story rear addition to replace enclosed porch, as shown in supplemental drawings dated 14 May 2013 which indicate wood soffit and vent. Request mock-up of rooftop mechanical equipment and ductwork to confirm that it will not be visible from public thoroughfare. Approval is conditional on the removal of the proposed canopy and 2-story steel post to support it from the scope of the work. Canopy is not compatible with the character of the historic district. Existing windows on front facade will be repaired. 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.
