Dear Mr. Jaroch:

In its meeting of 17 May, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the revised design of the facade for the Nassif Building at 400 7th Street, SW (case number SL 07-054). While the members regretted the inability to fabricate the previously approved scheme, they accepted Option 2 which approximates the vertical fins that were an important feature of the previous proposal.

The Commission has delegated the final review of the project to staff and requests that the applicant consult with the staff to discuss the refinement and documentation of the design, including accurate renderings, detailed drawings, and material samples.
