Landmarks Committee Meeting: 12/14/15 - Marling Lumber Site

December 13, 2015 8:43 PM

Monday, December 14, Landmarks Commission, 4:45 pm, LL-110 MMB

Item 3. 40361 1801 East Washington Avenue (Marling Lumber site) - Development of property adjacent to a Designated Madison Landmark - the Yahara River Parkway. 6th Ald. Dist. Contact: MMP CCG Madison, LLC

The Campbell Group is seeking an advisory opinion from the Landmarks Commission regarding whether the proposed development is "so large or visually intrusive as to adversely affect the historic character and integrity of the adjoining landmark or landmark site".

Also, in the link is the joint letter from MNA/SASY Preservation and Development Committees to the developer with initial comments and a response from the development team.

From the staff report from Amy Scanlon, Preservation Planner: 
"While the overall proposal is not too large or visually intrusive, there are several ways the proposed building design could be improved to better relate to the adjacent landmark site. The architectural expression of the proposed building is busy and borders on being visually intrusive to the landmark site. The architectural design should be simplified to become a backdrop for the historic landscape. At a minimum, the color selected for the balcony frame elements is distracting and should revised to be less contrasting so that the elements are not considered visually intrusive. In combination with the proposed paving, the area directly adjacent to the proposed building visible from the parkway should provide planting areas to soften the way the building touches the ground and to transition the building to the landscape...."

Staff recommends that the Landmarks Commission advise the Urban Design Commission and Plan Commission that the proposed development is not so large or visually intrusive as to adversely affect the historic character and integrity of the adjacent landmark and to provide the following design comments for consideration by the Urban Design Commission and Plan Commission: 

1. In combination with the proposed paving, the area directly adjacent to the proposed building visible from the parkway should provide planting areas to soften the way the building touches the ground and to transition the building to the landscape. 

2. The architectural expression of the proposed building is busy and borders on being visually intrusive to the landmark site. The architectural design should be simplified to become a backdrop for the historic landscape. 

3. At a minimum, the color selected for the balcony frame elements is distracting and should revised to be less contrasting so that the elements are not considered visually intrusive."
