221756 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for complete window replacement at 1724 N. Humboldt Avenue (the former St. Hedwig Convent), in the Brady Street Historic District, for Three Holy Women Congregation and Chiara Communities, Inc.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the applicant is asking to replace all the windows with replacement wood. The building was built as a convent and school and was converted to a housing project in 1984, prior to historic designation. A lot of the windows in the 1984 addition are failing and the original windows are in rough shape. The wood is good, but that is their only good feature. Things also weren't built as designed in 1984 and some things that were changed no longer serve any function. Staff recommends approving the replacement with conditions outlined in the Staff Report. Amy Schoenemann -- architect. This is a low-income senior housing project and these changes will be benefit the residents. The window installer and case manager also present. Grant, with conditions.
