1/14/20190 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this was before the Commission before, but is back with a change of materials and number of floors. The current project is 11 stories, from 9, for an additional height of 10 feet (the floor heights were lowered). Floors 1-5 will be parking with no car shadows visible from any public view. The upper floors will be offices. The concerns of the Commission from October have been addressed (more cohesion on the west wall, precast slab on an alley elevation, picked stone approved by the Commission, no HVAC penentrations on the front-facing facades, etc). The height will be 129 feet. Staff thinks the height pushes the outer limits of acceptability and the corner section has the apperance of a separate building. Staff would like the base level to be the matching granite. Mr. Askin feels a 10-story building would be adequate. Mr. Jarosz feels the massing is okay and follows the Third Ward massing guidelines. Mr. Jeffers said that half of the tenants will be a law firm. One additional floor is for office space and one for parking. Mr. Jarosz would like to see more street activation and a presentation in the future in regards to the lighting and the materials. Mr. Jeffers said they do want to do a fair amount of streetscaping, although many of the streets have hollow vaults under them and they cannot support street trees. Approve with conditions set by staff relating to the granite base, and future updates on lighting, signage and street activation.

10/1/20180 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Joshua Jeffers - 225 E. Michigan St. - wants to add an additional floor to the building for parking. Mr. Tim Askin said that that a lot of the lower floors will be parking and office space for the upper floors. Staff has concerns about the metal panel areas, but is fine with the masonry sections. This design increases detail as it goes upward, which is opposite of what is typical. The setback is too deep in one area for the staff and also feels that the Cordova stone material is inappropriate. Staff recommendation is to hold; the commission previously approved height and footprint. Joshua Jeffers said the use if being changed from residential to office; the ground floor will still be retail. There is a tremendous amount of demand from the hotels for parking so hotel guests could use that in the evening and on the weekend. Office users really like the floor to ceiling glass, as well as the mix of materials. Tim Wallasing - architect - they were trying to harmonize and tie in with the adjacent buildings without making it look the same. They were using the same stone as the Mackey building to build cohesion. They are trying to harmonize with both historic buildings through subtle details. Mr. Jarosz thinks that for the most part this fits in with the district. Mr. Askin had 9 recommendations so he would like the applicant to meet with staff. Mr. Jeffers would like to get footprint and overall height of the building approved and he will work with staff on their recommendations. Approve footprint and overall massing, proportions and height and hold design details for further review.
