  • 03/07/2017: At today’s public hearing, the LPC approved with the modification of making the proposed cornice larger as per the original proposal.  It was justified as more historically accurate and the larger size would help further block the visibility of the windscreen.
  • 12/06/2016: At today’s public hearing, the LPC took no action on this application.  The Commissioners felt that the windscreen and rooftop addition were too prominent and said that there were a number of solutions which could accommodate the proposed program for the building without such visibility.  The applicant was asked to revise their proposal and re-present at a future public meeting.
  • 11/15/2016: At today’s public hearing, the LPC approved the sidewalk replacement portion of the application.
