I and other neighbors testified at today's HPRB hearing on the 1600 North Capitol Street NW, as did ANC5E06 Commissioner Karla Lewis.
The DC Historic Preservation Office (HPO) staff report had a number of suggested changes to the design. The HPBR members produced a laundry list of changes to the proposed building design as well.
The feedback provided by Bloomingdale architects who submitted letters prior to today’s HPRB hearing was also referenced.
There was general interest in not suggesting huge changes that would punt the project back to the BZA.
It was decided that the suggested changes would be accommodated through the consent process, which means no further HPRB hearings.
