No objection to 1-year extension of approval of concept design for new five-story residential building per drawings dated 12 August 2016. Recommend glazing the openings along the parking ramp; a lighter color mix for the brick veneer; treating the building yard and sidewalk more traditionally, with street trees in a planted strip and with the sidewalk against the building; and reconsidering the use of red brick paving at the arrival court at 36th Street. Recommend further study of the exterior cladding of the building on the south to provide shading and arrangement of rooftop appurtenances. Erect materials mock-up panel on site for CFA review. File new submission at DCRA of design development drawings, including details, dimensions, and landscape plan, with concept application for review by the Commission.
