Review Type
DCRA revisions to design


No objection to issuance of permit for the proposed construction of a two-story Commerce Bank branch building as shown in supplemental drawings dated 12 March 2008 which indicate removal of glazing corner at north end of facade as a result of DCRA permit review process. No objection to proposed sign scheme composed of one back-lit sign mounted below second floor windows to right of entrance facing on Wisconsin Avenue, and one back-lit sign mounted at cornice level on south facade with letters no taller than 12-inches high reading 'Commerce Bank.' The roof top poles for cellular antennas were reviewed under separate permit application (see case OG 08-093). Working drawings conform to previously approved record drawings under cases OG 05-185 and OG 05-251. Note: Because the application is pending final zoning review, any subsequent modifications to the approved design must be re-submitted to the Commission for approval. Erect a materials sample panel on site, facing south, with the use of lighter color mortar, for review by the Commission prior to ordering materials.
