The company is seeking to revise exterior updates, which were previously approved, to the new location at 765 Elden Street.
In a July 10 memo, Town of Herndon staff voiced concerns about exterior materials being used on the site. The memo notes that the cladding proposed for the site is more simplified than originally planned.
“There is concern regarding the durability of this material. The mock-up already has chips along the edges,” the memo states.
However, staff said they had no problem with the following requested changes:
Reduce the height of the second story portion of the CMU screen wall, which would exceeds the capabilities of the existing and proposed structural footings.
Remove the 8′ tall roof terrace screen on the southerly portion of the west elevation and on the south elevation. This screen was implemented in the original design as a safety feature for a previous bocce court on the roof deck that is no longer feasible due to the floor plan changes approved through HPRB #19-02. The roof terrace screen will be replaced with the cable railing specified for other areas of the roof deck of the last approved design.
The second-floor stairwell near the front of the building was extended several feet closer to the front façade to accommodate a larger landing and meet code required clearances.
The HPRB will meet at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the Herndon Council Chambers building (765 Lynn Street).
