Stanton-Eastbanc to Unveil New Hine Drawings Tuesday Night
ANC To Have the Community’s Last Word on Hine Project
by Larry Janezich
Stanton-Eastbanc will reveal their final changes to the concept drawings for the Hine Project at the Capitol Hill Restoration Society’s (CHRS) Special Membership Meeting on the Hine site. The meeting will include a Q&A with Stanton-Eastbanc on their proposed plans and a request for comments from CHRS members and the public. The event will be free and open to the public and will be on Tuesday, April 5, from 6:45pm – 8:30pm, at Maury elementary school at 13th and Constitution Avenue, NE (entrance on 13th Street)
Stanton partner Kitty Kaupp has confirmed that new drawings will address some of the concerns raised by the ANC and the community in reaction to prior presentations in early March.
Thereafter, the process will unfold as follows:
April 13 – ANC6b will circulate a draft response to the latest design concept among ANC commissioners.
April 19 – The ANC6b draft response will be made public and widely disseminated for public feedback.
April 19 – CHRS Board meeting – vote on recommendations likely.
April 20 – CHRS files its recommendation with HPRB and it becomes public..
April 26 – ANC6b holds Special Call Meeting to hear a presentation from Stanton-Eastbanc, and to consider and vote on a resolution of recommendation regarding Stanton-Eastbanc’s design concept.
April 22 – The Historic Preservation Office (HPO) staff report in which the staff evaluates the Hine project’s neighborhood compatibility will be available on line.
April 28 – The Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) considers Stanton-Eastbanc’s design concept and reviews the site plan, overall architectural direction, height, and mass. It will not review construction detailing at this stage. The developers will make a presentation, and HPRB will hear from the ANC, community organizations and individuals, and parties in favor and opposed. HPRB will deliberate openly – and ask questions, then vote on a motion or series of motions based on the HPO staff recommendations in the report.
As a final note, the Office of Planning does not believe that the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts has any jurisdiction over the Hine project.
