These adjustments include re-inserting openings into the garage at this location with opening coverings with a finished quality detailing, adjusting masonry pattern on side bay, and adjusting the corner detail design element. 4. South Façade: make adjustments to south facing façade consistent with the diagram provided to applicant by DCD on July 2, 2021 regarding minimizing the appearance of a blank wall on this prominent façade and window placements. Garage door materials should be adjusted to be fully transparent, or if not possible than should match the color of adjacent brick.

Submit an executed easement to the Register of Deeds for recording from the property owner at 1775-1881 N Water St. that allows construction of a portion of the proposed Riverwalk on the western side of 1887 N Water to be constructed on a portion of the neighboring property consistent with approved plans, and secure any required updated zoning approvals related to the construction of this Riverwalk on the adjacent property. 9. Adjust the placement of the gate/fence at the northeastern section of the building to relocate it to the corner of the building to increase safety for residents and neighbors. 10. Adjust Riverwalk lighting on east side of building to match quality/character of lighting on west side. 11. Adjust proposed parking lot opening covering grates along Riverwalk on west façade. This could include a more attractive finished quality covering, or raised bed planters along the Riverwalk to screen the grates (that maintain the 8 foot unobstructed path requirement). 12. Continue to explore opportunities to incorporate play areas into the development.
