Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this is the third hearing on this item. The current proposal is for a one-story rooftop addition with the ground floor unchanged as first proposed. A rooftop desk is still included. The developer will have wood windows on the upper floors and paint and re-scrape as needed. Staff recommends approval with conditions listed in its report. Staff would like to see more brick on the Broadway side. John Vetter - architect - can't even see the view from the Broadway street so they don't feel the need to add brick and they like the modern element. He thinks working with staff was beneficial and they were helpful. He sees this area as an extension of the third ward. Ms. Clendenen-Acosta prefers not having the brick. Donald Arenson - 608 N. Broadway - his only concern was security with the outdoor patio area so strangers can't decrease his privacy and also music on the roof. He would like the patio further from his property. He's also concerned about exhaust fan noise and debris in the alley area. Charles Bailey - owner

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the building is being converted to a hotel and a 3-story addition is the current proposal (downsized from 5 stories). The changes proposed to the historical building are sensitive and there are no remaining historic windows and the existing windows would not be approved by this body. The current entry design is a quality design that is appropriate to the building. The addition has no precedence in this historic district. The addition would be a change to the roofline that is visible from the public right of way. The addition is sensitive to the building, but still remains an anomoly. The three stories will result in permanent shadows for the roof deck of the building next door. Staff recommends hold for a maximum of one story or deny it. John Vetter - 161 S. 1st St. - architect - this would be 45-unit hotel. There is a Kinn hotel in Bayview (8 units, boutique hotel). Each level has its own kitchen and is designed to mimic a home. Charles Bailey - - Shorewood - the property is under contract presently. Mr. Vetter said it's important the precedent that is being set. It's a tired street, but it's one of the nearly intact blocks and set a good precedent for development to revitalize an area. The plan does retain columns and floor slabs; they will be puttng existing floors back. Parking will be valet. Don Arenson - neighbor opposed to the plan. He has lived downtown since the late 1970s or 1980s and owned this building at one time. It's an additional 30 foot wall next to his building. He doesn't think it's the right thing for the area. The buildings need attention, but things are happening and he thinks this is compromising the integrity of his building. Mr. Jarosz noted that the Third Ward does have its own design guidelines and does try to be a little more edgy and artistic. They also compare building height to adjacent buildings and try for a range of 70%-130%. He would like to hear from adjacent property owners about their concerns. He is frustrated that the block has sat for years not being developed. Ms. Hatala said the city has been losing Italianate buildings and these buildings are more fragile than the Scottish temple to support additional floors. Held to get some more details and talk to the neighbors.
