900 Maine Avenue, SW
The staff of the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) has reviewed revisions to the permit submission for a proposed new residential, retail, and theater building to be located at 900 Maine Avenue, SW, on Parcel 2 of the Southwest Waterfront development area known as the District Wharf (case number SL 15-090). We regret that these revisions were not forwarded to allow us to complete the CFA review prior to the issuance of a permit for construction, as required under the Shipstead-Luce Act. Nevertheless, the staff has no objections to the permit submission for this project, as the revised design conforms with the previous advice of the Commission.
With the authority delegated by the Commission at its meeting of 19 March 2015, we recommend approval of the permit submission of the proposed new building, as documented in materials received and dated 6 March 2015 and supplemental materials received and dated 27 June 2017 and 20 July 2017. If there are any additional changes please contact the staff to determine if additional review will be required. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions. Note: Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be resubmitted to the Commission for approval.
Note: This recommendation was dated 8 August 2017.
