1.       424 Washington Avenue North, Ward 3

Staff report by Shanna Sether, PLAN4918

The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development recommends that the Heritage Preservation Commission adopt staff findings for the Certificate of Appropriateness by Jennifer Kaplan for the property located at 424 Washington Ave N in the Minneapolis Warehouse Historic District:

        A.      Certificate of Appropriateness.

Recommended motion: Approve the certificate of appropriateness to allow an alteration of an existing structure, including landscaping and retaining walls to allow for an entrance to enclosed parking, subject to the following conditions:

  1. The replacement brick and mortar shall match the original brick and mortar in material, color, profile, dimension and texture. The applicant shall reuse the existing brick proposed to be removed to infill areas of the wall, where possible.
  2. Removal of the existing mortar with power tools shall be done in accordance with the National Park Service Technical Preservation Brief for Repointing Mortar Joints.
  3. The landscaping and screening required between the surface parking lot and the street shall include plantings and fencing that comply with Guideline 1.12 and shall enhance the pedestrian realm. Further, the landscaping shall evoke a sense of the volunteer nature of vegetation in an industrial setting. The required screening shall be a 3-foot tall, open, decorative metal fence.
  4. By ordinance, approvals are valid for a period of two years from the date of the decision unless required permits are obtained and the action approved is substantially begun and proceeds in a continuous basis toward completion.  Upon written request and for good cause, the planning director may grant up to a one year extension if the request is made in writing no later than September 26, 2019.
  5. By ordinance, all approvals granted in this certificate of appropriateness shall remain in effect as long as all of the conditions and guarantees of such approvals are observed.  Failure to comply with such conditions and guarantees shall constitute a violation of this certificate of appropriateness and may result in termination of the approval.
