You’re probably one of the few who appreciates these! I think they’re fun- especially reading the proposals.

2516 E Marshall Street is comically awful! What the hell are they thinking???

Also – I enjoy looking at these as well. I’ll second what Chloe said: thank you!

The idea with new infills, and has always been on the books, is that they look like structures in the immediate area. If there are Victorian Italianate then, that is what the new buildings should also look like. From the sketches, the new structures seem to fit that bill and I am not opposed to them. ?

The only objection I have are with the porch roofs, especially the hip roof designs. I am seeing them being built new as well as being rebuilt, incorrectly with the angles off or having no curve to them, like the originals.

2516 E Marshall is NOT OKAY. I am on that block and SEVERAL of us are going to CAR on Tuesday to protest this plan. Please join us and if you can’t come, write a letter and we will take it with us!!!!

Is there anything showing how the buildings will look at 2516 E, Marshall? Someone over at Nextdoor is concerned and asking for people to voice the same about construction that does not match the surrounding area (3 story when neighboring houses are only 2). This side of the block does fall within the O&H District so is protected and has to follow guidelines… Here is what I found and posted there: According to the O&H (Old and Historic Districts) of Richmond Virginia “Handbook and Design Review Guidelines” which is online through the CAR’s link… Page 46: STANDARDS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION… Read more »

Oops… I found and saw the new construction line drawings (should have a better computer-generated illustration of how they will look in reality). There are pros and cons. I get it where they are trying to maximize the space – more bang for the buck. And they are trying to match the Nolde’s building architecture across the street. But at the same time, not sure how the CAR will chime in on the one aspect about a new infill should face the prominent street (E Marshall)?

The application for 2516 East Marshall Street has been withdrawn from the CAR agenda for tomorrow, March 26. It will not be considered at the meeting.

The lot these are being built on is owned by Romero LLC. So is the empty lot across the street listed as 315 N 26th Street but it is 35 feet shorter. Can just eliminate the courtyard and place it there and it is not in the O&H District. And he could have also sold the house (2603 E Marshall) next to that empty lot parking since he owns it as well and sold it for a good price. The configuration then would have allowed a Marshall Street frontage making an L shape building and still have space behind for… Read more »

Looking at the engineering plans that has the facade drawings, they look nothing like their description of Italianate or Greek Revival styles. More like the plain bland masonry block building they say will be covered either in concrete or stucco. Also, they are misleading by saying it is “three new, single-family residences” when in fact, are at least 9 resident units or more (3 floors each with a family or more per floor)

Kim Chen the 2516 E Marshall St proposal still appears on the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting. How can we validate your information?

Until Kim chimes in, read the top block of Page 2 of this CAR Staff Report which denies the developer’s proposal.

Eric – i appreciate your recommendation to read the second page of the report. While I’ve read the report in its entirety Saturday, I didn’t see specifics to it being removed from the agenda. I don’t want to assume that I don’t need to attend the meeting as I wouldn’t want CAR to have the impression that residents are not opposed to the plan as well for similar reasons reflected in the staff comments.
