Pocket parks! Mixed use! This is awesome.

Is the drawing of the mixed-use building out of scale with the neighbor or is it really going to look like that? And is there no sideyard setback?

This is all really awesome looking stuff. Only one question – does/can the building on Jefferson’s facade/frontage wrap around the corner? I’m there are zoning and/or practical concerns, but it would be nice if it had a facade/windows/a presence on both streets

why do people submit work for rear decks and other items on the sides and/or rear of their homes to CAR? I thought only changes to the front of the structure had to be approved by them…

@6 CAR regulates everything external on any structures in a city recognized historic district, not just the front.

@5 I agree, belongs in Chesterfield County.

@4, you might try looking at the more detailed plans. Click on the word ‘agenda’ in the first sentence, then click on that address. There are some fairly detailed plans there.

I think anything at all down at the end of Franklin St. is great.

Dave, CAR reviews any project that can be seen from a public right of way. Alleys are considered a public right of way. If it can’t be seen from a street or alley, then CAR doesn’t care.

I like the Carrington house. I used to live right down the street from there, and definitely see how it picks up design and scale from the Victorians that remain in that area. 1206 n 23rd, that great house that BHC saved near 21st and Fairmount, that big ass house at 20th and R Street, that vacant beauty at R and 23rd.

Love the Carrington St. house!

John M, I too like the Carrington Street house. It’s remarkably like many of its neighbors. CAR meetings are not only open to the public but provide for public comment; and they’re well worth attending and very educational.

Thanks John. Those are exactly some of the homes that inspired the preliminary designs for the Carrington House. For the record I am only going for conceptual review on the 15th not Certificate of Appropriateness. I have already changed some things to plans that were submitted. I am planning to live in this house and def. don’t want it to look suburban. That’s the last thing I want. These plans are still in process and I am definitely open to changes and criticism. With MANY advisers a plan succeeds! If any one has specific comments or suggestions my email is daves@longandfoster.com.
