A.      Pre-Application for 165 Lithia Way – 2nd Review

Ms. Harris explained that this pre-application was reviewed by the Historic Commission at last month’s meeting.  South and west elevations for the project have been submitted since then for additional comments by the Commissioners.  Jerome White, Mark Knox, and Evan Archerd passed out revised south and west elevations and floor plans for the mixed-use building and explained the proposed layout.  Mr. White said the exterior for the first two floors would be brick, with the third floor in stucco with small recesses on each of the four corners.  The base would have some type of ceramic tile so that additional entry doors could be more easily added for future tenants.  He explained that the west elevation is designed to be able to also have store fronts.  Door materials are undecided but would be “full light”.  Ms. Renwick was concerned that the east public walkway with the “light well”

would be too confining and potentially unsafe when another building is built on that side.  Mr. White said they were considering a gated entry for security.  The landscape plan had not been done yet, but the urban plaza on Lithia Way would have benches and planters, ornamental trees and an area for dining tables in the 16 feet from the sidewalk to the building front.  Mr. Knox expressed a desire to see a park-like green space on the City’s lot next door to tie into their urban space.  Chairman Shostrom felt the awnings could be more prominent, eight feet instead of five feet, particularly on the center section.

 

Mr. Navickas, City Council liaison, said he was sorry about the animosity surrounding this project but hoped the process would produce a better product.  He said he did not like the layout of the windows and felt the cornice was not strong enough.  He thought they could be articulated more.

 

There were no further comments or questions from the Commissioners.
