111430 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for new second story and rear addition at 728 E. Brady Street for Alaa Musa.

Minutes note: Mr. Jakubovich gave a summary on the additions to the Casablanca restaurant. The current owner is proposing a substantial expansion to add a new second story to the top of the building along with a small rear addition. The building is a non-contributing structure with no historical buildings immediately surrounding it. The owner decided on a Mediterranean look to compliment the restaurant's business. Many of the suggestions made by staff were incorporated into a re-design of the additions. The front elevation facing Brady Street has three parts. Changes from the original design to the front elevation include: more definition to baize, cornice is lowered and detailed differently, round arched doors on the second story have been flattened with dividing lights to match the first story, and additional detailing at the top of each of the columns on the first story will give order of architecture. The side elevation on Cass Street will be relatively simple with French windows on the second story and a small, rear addition to accommodate an enlarged kitchen area. Mr. Jakubovich, on behalf of HPC staff, recommended approval. Individuals appearing: Ald. Nik Kovac, 3rd Aldermanic District Alaa Musa, property owner Jim French, JFrench and Associates, Inc. Mr. Musa said that the balcony will have six outdoor tables set for dining purposes. He added that the second story, which will have a bar area, will be used primarily for banquet purposes. Ald. Kovac said that he was in support of the re-design of the additions, especially with the elimination of arched doors and the use of stucco finishing material to match the original. Ald. Bauman moved approval of a Certificate of Appropriateness for new second story and rear additions at 728 E. Brady Street for Alaa Musa. Seconded by Mr. Bryant. There were no objections.
