Previous Review


Dear Mr. Eichler:

During its meeting of 20 February, the Commission reviewed the revised  concept design for the rehabilitation and alterations of the H.D. Woodson High School located at 55th and Eads Streets, NE. The members found the modified elevations and the reconfigured main entranceway to be much improved. The members approved the concept with the suggestion that additional windows or other design elements be incorporated into the south elevation's large flat expanses of wall to enliven this side of the new academic wing. In addition, the Commissioners requested that a detailed landscape plan be submitted when the project returns for additional review.

As always, the staff is available should you or the design team have questions.
