Local Considerations for CAR this week

07/17/2018 6:00 AM by

The agenda for the July 24 meeting of the Commission of Architectural Review had a number of local projects:

  • 2423 East Grace Street – Replace front porch roof with a membrane roof.
  • 523 North 29th Street – Replace two doors and remove a door opening on a side porch.
  • 1609 West Grace Street – Replace 11 wood windows on the facade of a home with new cellular composite windows.
  • 813 North 24th Street – Construct a new single family home.
  • 2401 East Broad Street – Install a condensing unit on the rear of the actor’s studio building, with screening.
  • 2411 M Street – Construct a two-story mixed use building on a vacant lot.
  • 3408 East Broad Street – Construct a new single family dwelling on a vacant lot.
  • 600 North 28th Street – Amend previously approved plans for a new single family home to alter the foundation material and basement windows.
  • 514 North 26th Street – Construct a new single family home on a vacant lot.

Now, most of these are Applications for a Certificate of Appropriateness, this is basically a requirement before any exterior work proceeds on a structure located in a local historic district.

Of interesting note is the 2411 M Street proposal. If you’re familiar with this development, it looks like the 3-story proposal is now a new 2-story mixed used building configured to meet current zoning. “As such, the revised scheme provides street-level commercial space along Jefferson Avenue and at the prominent triangular end of the stire which continues onto and down M Street for approximately 1/3 of the block.”
