Awnings and signs – Washington Printmakers Gallery
Review Type


The Commission regrets that awning above paired window was installed prior to review or permit. Recommend against issuance of permit for proposed awnings over windows and doors with lettering on the valance. Existing awnings obstruct the view of significant architectural detailing on this historic building and are not appropriate to the character of this historic building in particular or the historic district in general. Remove existing awnings, framing and signs for previous tenant no later than 31 August 2014 including repair of any damaged brick. Recommend study of a wall mounted sign above windows or door. File new submission at DCRA of detailed and dimensioned drawings for a flat wall–mounted sign, with permit application for review by the Commission.
