Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this was heard in December and due to COVID19, progress has stalled. It also wasn't realistic to replace windows in the winter. There are 15 windows on the second story left. Mr. Askin recommends an extension for one more year. Mr. Iliya Torbica - he would like a 5-year option for mothballing due to the cost of the first floor windows. The salon on the first floor of the building hasn't paid any rent. Mr. Torbica will complete the 2nd floor this spring and part of the first floor by the end of the year. Approve a one-year mothball extension (until next year's June meeting).

7/9/20180 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the applicant's request is to replace only the 5 windows on the front. Staff is recommending a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 5 years for the mothball application. The applicant's family own more than $2 million in real estate, with various liens filed over the years. There are four proposals for windows; staff would accept JeldWen with some modifications and the other options are acceptabe as is. Staff would accept built-in aluminum storms on the north elevation due to the proximity of the adjacent building. Ald. Nik Kovac - the owner lives in Florida and he sees no reason for leniency. Iliya Torbica - management partner on the property - he needs more than 5 years as he simply doesn't have the money. He also notes that 95% of the building can't be seen from the street. Grant a mothball for two years and a COA for any of the 4 types of windows subject to staff conditions, no COA for arch top windows and allow aluminum storm windows on the north facade.
