Dear Mr. Seaman:

In its meeting of 19 February, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed and approved the final design for a new eleven-story office building to be located at 800 Maine Avenue, SW, in the Southwest Waterfront development area known as The Wharf (case number SL 15-075).  

The Commission members expressed appreciation for the responsiveness to their previous recommendations, particularly in the treatment of the building's base.  They agreed that the darker red brick presented in the sample would be appropriate for the masonry portions of the facades.

The Commission looks forward to the review of forthcoming submissions for the other development parcels at The Wharf.  As always, the staff is available to assist you.
