6:29 pm
size of each stone cutting material should not think altered from what was presented to the ar c and future the height of the painted metal base kept at inch height and if such of the requirements be kept as presented and reviewed by the ar c and the that attachment, submitted for review and will evaluation the vertical elements in the painted metal surrounded has been eliminated from the proposal leaving only the horizontal banned from the ground floor and additionally the height of the horizontally element is increased in 7 nature to 9 feet to be adjacent the storefronts on adjacent buildings. as current proposed the
6:30 pm
horizontally r horizontal element is sobriety from the stone and the department recommends the horizontal be in line with the facing to break up the massing and scale a condition of approval has been added as such and the project sponsor has revised the drawings to reflect and incorporate the comments and recommendations bans the review of the revised drawings and the supplements that meets the standards and the article 11 for reasons flu detailed in the draft motion based on those finding the department recommends approval with the following conditions that the horizontal element proposed between the ground floor and upper level should be pulled to realign with the

6:32 pm
information on staffs presentati presentation. >> here's some new material to add i understand you have a copy that was submitted last to planning?
6:33 pm
>> did everyone receive one well happy new year my goal our goal today was to take off from the material you already have i'm happy to go back and talk about where we are been and where we are going i'm happy to do that where we are going to work off of what you already understand in the project from the description and the material that you have for the sake of time address the conditions and one item that we believe was misinterpreted from the ar c i'm asking a question would you like you go us to springboard from planning or like us to go back
6:34 pm
and give you the full presentation from the ar c. >> most useful do the presentation in terms of the planning department recommendation for the approval if you're okay with those conditions we don't need much of a presentation. >> if you have comments about those or want to add to them then. >> that's exactly what we're going to address. >> can we - is this working this other mike okay so the comments that we would like to address and i'm going to use of us see the material we just passed ousted on the left that is what was submitted what you have and the rendering on the right picks up on a few help us to explain our disagreements or requests for compensations
6:35 pm
from those comments based on what we made came from the ar c and developed the line further how we've come to what we call the desired facade on the right so on planning department's recommendation number one did horizon am element continue the ground floor and the upper level shall be pulled forward to align with the stems when we were discussing that at the ar c we agreed to put the horizon am member in the end had a discussion shall that will flush we double-checked from the transcripts it would help if there was a distinguishing line it could be a good thing to setback, however, look at it and study and propose small business owner something we've setback a
6:36 pm
little bit to have a distinguishing feature between the stone and that metal header that's our first point in our sense that we agree what come out of the ar c meeting the next point the size number the joints and the surrounded shall be kept as oriental proposed astounded we're fine with putting in more joint when we left the meeting we not a lot of features between base and height we start looking at keeping it more sleek because of having smooth stone not having a rustication that is something this is work we went in that direction it is more of a monolithic band around using the historical stone we've come to the point of trying to reduce
6:37 pm
the joint but we're open to adding them in the - all the commissioners agree we should do that and item number 3 the height of the metal base shall be kept at minimum we reduced to allow for the header we're fine if we need to go that if it is going to satisfy the code we're fine but relating that to an element of last meeting and the one item i'd like to add for discussion is the blade sign itself that what we submitted on the left is actually not what we originally submit to go planning within about towards the end comments very close to the gate when this has obtain it be 0
6:38 pm
finalized new comments from planning right before it it had to be copied we were instructed that our go sign more in line with the right is taller was not in line with the planning interpretation from the r o ar c meeting so we were instructed we should to pull this down we went head and did that but did we misunderstood the art meeting that was discussed at the art meeting or not on the right the desired is based on and again we've double-checked the transcripts we need from the previous design didn't have the 9 foot high header okay. so planning was pushing to hold this down as far as possible for the pedestrian scale but the discussion at the meeting get
6:39 pm
that horizontal membrane and sign shouldn't be pulled down for the sake consider it being lower but consider how it relates what's the logical position related to the facade so for us on the left what was submitted is for us it is out of balance with the facade it actually takes away from the horizontal line above the industry entry is it so almost touching this is not a very tall building we're talking about 26 feet to the top this was that was also discussed once you get that horizontal part what's the office space swopping so this is portionly bitter for a smaller sign than before but still relate it to the overall
6:40 pm
building. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> commissioners, any questions. >> thank you very much oh, do you have a question commissioner pearlman. >> no i'll talk about it in a minute and we'll move to public comment is there anyone from the public that wishes to speak on item number if so please be advised seeing and hearing none public comment is closed. and back to you, commissioners. >> commissioner pearlman. >> i'll be john marshall the person of the day. >> yeah. this looks at clean and simple i did you followed a lot of the comments the one thing about the based on the door my understanding is from ada code you have to have a tenant kick on the sunglasses door you might as well kept it at 10 inches you're going to run into this if you go to the
6:41 pm
building inspection ii agree to make that 10 inches for the reason stated. >> we're having some weird thing happening and the sign itself you know on one hand whatever works work i have one question not really a question a comment on your sheet after the accident 3.11 you're detail sheet and top of storefront number 8 it appears that the water of the el nino rains that are going to slope down that sloping portion of you're roof is going to go into the building no coping cat flashing on the stone i don't know if that is a
6:42 pm
piece missing the water will run into the building. >> sure it is a rain screen you have a gutter at the bottom it's not been detailed and basking which diverts the water from the top of the stone down to the does it is a funny detail. >> and again unrelated to the hpc comments so in terms of the horizon always i think it should more of a horizontal more spacing in the stone otherwise, it is very vulnerable exactly that's the original and the cuts in the stone are better scale wise relative to the other building. >> thank you commissioner johnck. >> yeah. i want to see what's on the board that was a question
6:43 pm
i had coming back from the later to the former yeah, huh? i agree with the philanthropy of the facade being higher yeah. i think that is perfectly good the way if we can resolve that one at least for the proposal to add more of these joints and that's what you recommended i guess. >> it feels. >> i'm torn is it so a little bit more classical i'm a little bit torn i really like the philosophy of the design in terms of our role how it gets e fits into the rest of the street would be the joints there's disagreement with the historic preservation commission to add two more joints?
6:44 pm
>> okay. >> i'm torn so i'll hear from the rest of you. >> commission. >> thank you. i'll go down the list number one the stone is 26 high building i like the vertical all of it it definition us a grander scale in a compartmentalize listed area so what's the next item? metal setback is great the way they asked for the header we talked about the bottom and then the sign i like it higher i think that is more balanced so i actually like their desired proposal currently as it is. >> any other comments? >> commissioner johnck.
6:45 pm
>> oh, commissioner hyland. >> so on the sign i think they've already reduced the height of the sign i personally don't have i guess i prefer it higher i guess the question for staff in conflict that the signage code is that why we're not wanting. >> commissioners tim frye department staff i'll jump if you have something to add prior our direction to make the sign lower was based on the overall height and the general a narrow street and most of signage per guidelines we've been improving to make that more pedestrian scaled there are a number of signs that are on upper floors and a number of banners we think there is a conflict with other
6:46 pm
signs at the general height me might not get the desired viability there are a lot of signs at this location we saw that as an overall benefit to make the sign lower i don't think we feel strongly about that either proposal seems to work i think you're main goal during the ar c do get the sign reduced in overall height which they have done. >> do you wish to add something. >> so i'm okay with the height the sign being at the higher level based on the conditions. >> it is actually not the current design is the one on the left so if we want the sign to be higher there is a condition saying the sign could come back higher than it is. >> i'll support that. >> on the joints i really
6:47 pm
don't have a strong opinion but 6 vulnerabilities gives the signage some grournd so in conjunction with that more additional joints will might help. >> can i comment on that we may be stuck with a couple joint because of the signage how do we get this to work with the zone we're not put a hole in the stone so i appreciate the comment. >> i have no opinion either way on that the one recommendation of having the metal flush i prefer having it recessed so i would go against staff recommendations. >> so is there a motion? >> (laughter) someone craft the motion.
6:48 pm
>> move to approve with the changed condition they have the option to add more joints it sounds like you may be working on that they have to be even all the way around and the metal surrounds we're good with the metal setback. >> to remove the condition the first condition. >> yep or the condition. >> not more than it shows. >> the 10 inch base. >> the setback of the header. >> oh, we remove the condition we'll approve it as designed. >> looks like 3 motions. >> okay. >> materials and colors were good with. >> and you'll leave the condition around the basin and
6:49 pm
the signage in height they have the option to go as high as shown in the proposed; right? and then. >> yeah. i guess we need to clarify what document the height of the sign if we go with the higher sign can are we referring to in terms of documents. >> so it would be the latest vision with the higher location with the sign that with the reduced size. >> right. >> yes on the left just to be clear we're removing the condition removing the metal to be flush with the stones surrounded we're keeping condition number 2 where the number of joints are increased but that is optional
6:50 pm
number 3 where the metal bilk head will be kept at 10 inches minimum and number 4 where we talked about the location of the sign it would be the version that was presented to you today with the reduced size. >> that's number 4 number 34 we'll keep the projects. >> yeah. number 5 and the sign. >> good with the maker? >> second. >> (laughter). >> thank you for your time. >> shall i call the question. >> on that motion to approve as amended eliminating the first proposed condition retaining the second giving the sponsor the option to increase as long as
6:51 pm
they're of even numbers and retaining the third and fourth condition adding a fifth noting the proposed sign height as being acceptable to the historic preservation commission on that motion commissioner hasz commissioner johnck commissioner johns commissioner matsuda commissioner pearlman commissioner hyland and commissioner wolfram so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously 7 to zero. >> there are no further items on your agenda hearing is adjournedadjourned.
