1634 Wisconsin Avenue, NW United States
Sign for 'Sleepy's'
No objection to issuance of permit for proposed back-lit sign composed of 12 inch high pin-mounted aluminum letters reading 'Sleepy's' centered above show window on the Wisconsin Avenue facade and for the temporary installation of a 'Grand Opening' banner as shown in supplemental drawings dated 24 September 2013 which indicate all penetrations made through the mortar joints only. The existing awning (which obscures architectural ornament on the masonry opening for entrance doors, its shape is not compatible with this building, and was installed prior to review or permit) and the sign at rear facing 33rd Street will be removed as part of the scope of work. A replacement awning, rear sign and temporary bunting were deleted from his permit application. 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.
