Minutes note: This matter was held until later in the meeting. Ms. Carlen Hatala went through the history of the building and the Paul Weise family. Alexander Eischweiler was the architect of the building. The building was designed to be expanded as needed in the future. In 1978 the business was sold to Steven Stein. Staff recommends permanent designation based upon e-1 and e-6 Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to open the meeting for a public hearing. There were no objections. Paul Weise - real estate developer - congratulated Ms. Hatala on the amount of her research, some of which he hasn't seen. Eischweiler didn't design the north wall and he doesn't want to be tied in to things that his grandfather did on his own. Will all facades be historic, rather than just the Farwell and Albion facades? The north and east walls are spalling and are of no historic significance. The rubber roofing has also been modified numerous times since 1915. They would like to put a new roof on and build upon the third floor. Steven Stein - current owner of the building Ald. Nik Kovac - he has had conversations with Steven and Paul and the southern and eastern facades have the most detail, but HPC designates the building not facades. The business will be moving to the suburbs while the alderman would like to retain the current business.
