The Historic Preservation Committee has reviewed the applicant’s revised plans dated June, 2014.  We are very appreciative that the applicant has greatly improved the design, by using a uniform brick color (white) with a darker brick accent, paired one-over one wood clad windows on the front elevation, and double-hung windows on the side elevation.  The new plans show that the new building will follow the building line of the existing rowhouses.   We support the staff report’s suggestions concerning additional information needed, and the need for further study of the design elements including the  front entrance, canopy, door, additional windows.
