DCRA structural questions for 17 U Street NW's chimney plans

A neighbor passed along this info about 17 U Street NW, which received a nod from both the Bloomingdale Civic Association Monday night and ANC5D last night for its five pursued zoning variances.

Structural has questions, including about the chimneys.

a) the following information must be provided for any addition higher than the adjacent structure: i. snow drift calculations for adjacent structure provide snow drift load calculations for adjacent structure due to adjacent height increase. using the minimum design loads for buildings and other structures. [asce 7-05] ii. photos of the roof of property and adjacent properties showing all chimneys and vents for fuel fired appliances (permission shall be obtained from adjacent property owners to rebuild/extend affected elements by proposed construction).
