221372 03.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for windows installed by a prior owner at 2652 N. Grant Boulevard, in the Grant Boulevard Historic District for Veronica and Antonio Nolden.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said around 2009 or prior vinyl windows were installed by a prior owner. That owner has since passed. Staff recommends denial as there is no statute of limitations in the ordinance. Only three windows on the front are affected. It was a historic district when the windows were installed. Veronica Nolden - 2652 N. Grant Blvd. - she bought the property on Oct. 18th. - she does not feel she should have to replace the three windows in front as the work was done years ago. Jay Holmes - 3214 N. 41st St. - this area is nearly worthless and it's racist and this wasn't caught for 13 years. Evelyn Boyd owned the home in 2009, per Mr. Holmes. Hold to the call of the chair to create a policy for work done in years previously.

221380 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for installation of security screens on selected windows at 3360 - 3370 N. Sherman Boulevard in the North Sherman Boulevard Historic District, for Milwaukee Public Schools.

Minutes note: Mr. Askin said this is Townsend School and MPS is asking to add window security screens, which are pretty dark, but can be seen through. They are only proposing it on the ground windows, which are currently glass block windows. The south side has more windows as there are more balls coming from the play area and it is more climb-able and other windows on other sides as well. He recommends approval. Alison Nemec - architect Michelle Lenski - MPS Mark Bethel - Construction Engineer for MPS Ms. Nemec said the security screens allow in air and natural light, but also prevent break-ins. This will also need state and local federal review, which limits their choices. Grant, contingent on working with staff.

221382 08.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for relocation of primary building at the same lot 1550 N. Prospect Avenue within, the Frederick J. Goll House, an individually designated historic site, for Willow 1550 LLC.

Minutes note: Mr. Askin said this is the 3rd or 4th revision and the Commission is reviewing the effects on the house itself. The house was designated in 2002 and has been part of a historic district since 1990. The proposed tower is being reviewed by Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee tomorrow. Most of the south side of the house will still be visible from Prospect and the proposal is to move the house 30 feet closer to Prospect, which will bring it into closer alignment with the existing setbacks. Staff recommends approval. Chris Houden Adam Boldt - Architect

221383 09.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for construction of an eight story hotel at 308 W. Kilbourn Avenue, a part of the Milwaukee Journal Complex, an individually designated historic site, for HKS Holdings, Inc.

Minutes note: Mr. Askin said the team is here for interpretation and guidance on the design guidelines. The entire block is historic, except for the Major Goolsby site. The Republican Hotel on the site was demolished in 1961, replaced by a parking lot and fountain in 1964. The fountain did not remain on the site long. DCD did participate in creation of the staff report, but they have no official comment. A 10 foot front setback is required by zoning, but nothing on this block complies with that setback, so no reason to do it, especially along King Dr. He supports the proposed footprint with no setback. Staff does not support this being a background building, as proposed by the architect. There is a lack of undulation to the facade and it feels monolithic and not compatible with the area and it has the vague appearance of being a stripped-down building of a former building. It has a rather squat appearance and the rooftop deck throws off the scale. The windows don't speak to the pedestrian scale and the street is a key pedestrian area - the coffee shop does integrate into that, but details are lacking in street presence. The west facade needs detail. The roof line needs a clear and strong end point. Downtown zoning does not permit metal panels all the way to the sidewalk. Staff recommends holding this over to work on details. Aaron Event - architect Joel - owner - there will be a coffee shop/restaunt to bring pedestrians in, as well as creating a public plaza. Ethan Skeels - architect - they have added some more details. They particularly wanted Commission review of the scale and a reaction to the metal panel on the roof. They will find an appropriate place for the baseball plaque. Hold to work with staff more to further refine the design.
