Proposed Four-story Commercial Building

Tagged Passions:commercial

Lindsay Laird gave an overview of the project, noting that the subject site is part of the

Southeast Quadrant Master Plan (approved 1998). The applicant proposes a new four-story

commercial/office building. The proposed building will be approximately 34,264 square

Tagged Passions:commercial

feet total, with restaurant space on the first floor, office space on the second and third

Tagged Passions:restaurants

floors, and roof top event space on the fourth floor. A large +/-2,049 square foot patio is

Tagged Passions:events

also shown off the southern building elevation. Exterior building materials will primarily

Tagged Passions:materials

be brick (two different colors), glass, and stucco (less than 25 percent per fa ade).

Page 3 of 69

Page 2

The applicant provided additional detail on the project, noting that each fa ade will meet

transparency requirements. The applicant also noted that the proposed building will

incorporate exposed steel accents (painted black) above window arches on the eastern

(street-facing) building elevation. The building will not have soffit light fixtures as shown

Tagged Passions:streets

in the proposed rendering, but will have a soft under lit eyebrow. Mechanical equipment

Tagged Passions:equipment

will be located on the rooftop and will be screened from all sides by a parapet.

The board asked for clarification on the stairwell on the eastern street-facing building

Tagged Passions:streets

elevation. The board did not want to see stair stringers across windows. Instead, stair

stringers should cross above or below windows.

The board also requested clarification on the primary entrance to the building, facing

Davidson Gateway Drive. The applicant explained that the proposed doors are not facing

Tagged Passions:gateway

the street and instead face north towards the proposed parking area. The board requested

Tagged Passions:streets and parking

that door(s) face the street as required in DPO Section 4.5.6.H (design requirements for

Tagged Passions:streets

storefront buildings): The principal entrance to a building, and any ground-level tenant

Tagged Passions:rental and commercial

space entrance, both functionally and architecturally, shall front the primary public street or

Tagged Passions:streets

a public open space such as a square, plaza, courtyard, or sidewalk.

Tagged Passions:streets and Pedestrian

The DRB asked for additional clarification on front setback requirements for storefront

Tagged Passions:commercial

buildings in the Central Business District Planning Area. Staff explained that the DPO

Tagged Passions:planning and business

requires a 0 minimum and 0 maximum front setback for storefront buildings located in the Central Business District. The project team explained that

if the building were to be shifted
Tagged Passions:business and commercial

toward the property line along Davidson Gateway Drive, then there would have to be a

Tagged Passions:property and gateway

retaining wall at the back of sidewalk due to the topography of the site. The DRB suggested

Tagged Passions:streets and Pedestrian

that the project team pursue options to bring a portion of the building toward the property

Tagged Passions:property

line along Davidson Gateway Drive. This could be done by shifting the building itself

Tagged Passions:gateway

toward the property line or by incorporating additional hardscape/pedestrian features up to

Tagged Passions:property and Pedestrian

the property line, similar to the Jetton Street frontage at The Linden apartment building.

Tagged Passions:streets, zoning, and property

After further discussion, the board also requested that the applicant address the following

additional items prior to a decision on the proposed project:

Provide detail on the patio fireplace;

Provide cut sheets for all exterior light fixtures;

Provide material sample boards including colors, glazing, tinting, etc.;

Clarify perpendicular versus slanted window shades on second floor (Perpendicular window shades are preferred);

Consider incorporating larger windows on stairwell fronting Davidson Gateway Drive;

Tagged Passions:gateway

Make sure that all elevations and renderings match.

No further action was taken on this FYI item.

Other Items: None.

Adjourn: A motion was made to adjourn (John Burgess), seconded (EB Dyer), and approved

unanimously. The meeting was adjourned at 9:02 pm.

September 18, 2019

Project: Davidson Gateway Individual Building

Tagged Passions:gateway

Location: 635 Davidson Gateway Drive (Parcel ID 00321117)

Tagged Passions:property and gateway

Applicant: David Martini-Plank

Designer: David Martini-Plank, Architect

Planning Area: Central Business District

Tagged Passions:planning and business

This project was presented to the DRB for FYI review at the August 21 regular meeting.

The applicant proposes a new four-story commercial/office building at 635 Davidson Gateway Drive, which is part of the 1998 Southeast Quadrant Master

Plan. The proposed building will be +/- 34,264 square feet total, with restaurant space on the first floor, office space on the second and third floors, and roof top event space on the fourth floor. A large +/-2,049 square foot patio is also shown off the southern building elevation.
Tagged Passions:restaurants, events, commercial, and gateway

At the August FYI review, the DRB raised a question as to whether or not the proposed building complies with the 0 minimum and 0 maximum front

setback requirement for storefront buildings located in the Central Business District Planning Area. The project team addressed this concern by incorporating additional hardscape in the area between the 12 wide sidewalk and building, south of the primary entrance along Davidson Gateway Drive. Per notes under setback table 2-18, pedestrian features such as plazas, stoops, walks, and sidewalk cafes, etc., are included as part of the front and side setback areas.
Tagged Passions:planning, business, streets, restaurants, commercial, Pedestrian, and gateway

Exterior building materials will primarily be brick (dark grey and cream), glass (light grey glazing), and stucco (light grey; less than 25 percent

per fa ade). All brick at the first floor and stair towers will be dark grey with light grey mortar. The vertical infill brick between stair towers, from the first floor to the fourth floor will be a cream color. Stucco at second, third, and fourth floors will be light grey. Steel accent arches (painted black) are shown above windows on the eastern building elevation (facing Davidson Gateway Drive). Handrails will be painted black to match steel accents. All doors and window systems will have black anodized aluminum frames.
Tagged Passions:cell tower, Cell tower, materials, and gateway

Lighting details have been provided by the applicant and include LED bollard lights, aluminum wall mounted lights, diecast LED brick lights, flood

lights, and decorative pendant lighting above the outdoor patio (see lighting detail sheet).
Tagged Passions:flooding

Mechanical equipment will be located on the rooftop and will be screened from all sides by the building parapet. Solid waste containers will also be

screened from public view with materials similar to the building. Solid waste container screening will also be gated with black metal gates to match the steel accents on the building.
