Recommendations to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB)
231 Carroll Street, NW, HPA #11-282, Concept/New Construction
Adopted in a 5-0-1 show-of-hands vote on June 27, 2011 in a properly-noticed public meeting with a quorum present
ANC 4B supports the proposal for a mixed-use building at 231 Carroll Street, NW, particularly the red brick “warehouse” element and the glass “hyphen” on the Carroll Street façade.
We appreciate the developer’s accommodations to community concerns.
The two adjacent households have expressed concerns about height and shadow and transition and we ask that HPRB consider their concerns.
Also, high-quality materials and craftsmanship are key. We ask that HPRB specify materials and techniques.
We also ask that the Board review the placement and design of fencing, screening, walls and buffers to ensure that they protect neighboring homes.
ANC 4B01 Commissioner Sara Green is authorized to testify on this resolution before DC government bodies.
