1211 10th Street hearing before the Mayor's Agent

The owner of this property wants to substantially demolish the existing building.  HPRB objects to that plan as hiding behind the current facade is much of an intact 1830's building.  At the last HPRB review they rejected the demolition proposal by the owner.  When that happens every owner has a final appeal step to the Mayor's Agent.  I am not intimately familiar with this case but in general believe we should attempt to retain any original fabric of the neighborhood particular if it is this old.  The problem for the owner is that the old part is set well back into the lot making in difficult to construct the building they would like to.
I will request that this go before ANC 2F to establish a position and also invite the owner to come to our meeting next Thursday night.



Public notice is hereby given that the Mayor’s Agent will hold a public hearing on an application affecting property subject to the Historic Landmark and Historic District Protection Act of 1978. Interested parties may appear and testify on behalf of, or in opposition to, the application. The hearings will be held at the Office of Planning, 1100 4th Street, SW, Suite E650.
