As promised, the Design Review Committee met this morning, 7:30 AM sharp. Yours truly was first on the agenda, and good news–we passed with flying colors. But, as earlier hinted, more good news…Pete Pritchard presented his design for renovating the facade of the Webb Building. The section between the storefront and the second story will be replaced with a stucco surface to match the upper floors, and then wrapped with an aluminum horizontal band whose simple, flowing lines recall the art deco style above. The storefront, which has been painted over in parts, will be cleaned and repaired.
And then the first step will be completed. Let’s hope that a new tenant that would really activate that corner will be tempted by the fresh facade. Thanks Pete!
