So, for 1906 princess Anne, why don’t they just rebuild what was there originally? Or something reasonably similar? (Surely the three story box looking thing is just a place holder for something more attractive?)

There wasn’t anything there previously Lee. It was a yard for the home beside it that was sold as a new piece of land separate from the home. I agree something like what is already there, the other homes on the street, should go there not what they are proposing.

I have always coveted that last house on Princess Anne for its view and driveway/yard on that extra lot. Seems a shame that according to this it will be no longer.

What do the Friends of Jefferson Park think about this proposal for 1906 Princess Anne?

I know if I lived there I’d be none too thrilled about this design since it in no way fits in with the rest of the homes lining the park. Kind of reminds me of the Johannes monstrosity on Broad.

@4, I’m a member of the Friends of Jefferson Park, But as the plans have just been released for 1906 P-Anne, the group has yet to discuss. Personally, I’m not a fan of the dwelling entrances facing east–a 90-degree turn from the street/sidewalk. Also, I was under the impression [mistaken?] the design would be even more modern and edgy–with bigger windows and more glass to reflect the skyline view back at the park to the users of the park. The building height is a concern for me too–tho I could be swayed to support the height if other architectural issues… Read more »

@Neighbor – see photos, address in caption at top of page. It appears there was something there at some point, it’s just been a while. Or maybe I’m misunderstanding…?

In any event, what they are proposing might work – but all that drawing really shows is the vokume/massing of the building/

***all it really shows is the volume/massing of the buildings, not the details. I hope…?

The detailed CAR applications for all the projects above available on the city’s website.

Thankfully, the application for 1906 Princess Anne is quite detailed.

Thanks, Elaine.

Looks very inappropriate (looks like crap) to me.

The proposed project on Princess Anne is no less than hideous. If built as drawn, it will certainly bastardize every other existing property. This thing makes Johannes monstrosity on Broad look like award winning architecture. This one should be stopped in its tracks.

If CAR approves, its shows they are not any better than the city council, and they have NO PURPOSE or RESPECT.

My guess (hope) is they will deny it, then the builder will go to city council, then get approved….. Sound familiar?

My advice to anyone who opposes a proposal on CAR’s agenda is to get active early. Case in point are the homes proposed for the 600 block of North 29th Street. I’ve reached out to the developer and CAR to work through some design issues on these homes. As a result, these proposals have evolved substantially since they were introduced in December.

If the developer won’t listen, participate in the public hearing process. As long as you are addressing design elements governed by CAR, I’ve found CAR and staff to be very responsive.

As a neighbor (two doors down) I am concerned with pretty much everything about this: 90 degree turn, unstable hill, corrugated siding, three-stories (plus railing for heating/air?), overall design and look, number of units and to make it worse, the addition of completely unwanted alley – This is more junk of the Shockoe Vally View ilk that should have been denied originally – (also they have been building that for two full years now – please at least finish up your disaster and go away.)
