Action Item #1.
Continued review of Minor Exterior Modification for the Islander Pub, located at 7440 SE 27th Street. Modifications include façade changes on three exterior walls, two new signs, new lighting and site improvements on the south side.
Kathy Harbert, Associate Planner, summarized the staff report for the changes made since the first meeting held on April 25, 2001. Staff recommended approval with two conditions relating to a landscape security agreement and future use of the rooftop for a garden. Ms. Harbert answered questions regarding color locations.
Kevin Broderick, Architect, 55 S. Atlantic St. #301, Seattle, WA, stated the intent of the revisions is to address the previous Design Commission concerns while working within the tenant area. He answered questions relating to color and proposed site upgrades.
The Commission deliberated on the revisions. Discussions included the landscaping proposed and the lighting of the stairwell. Placing a light on the wall of the stairwell was suggested by the Commission and received by Mr. Broderick. Types of plant material were discussed.
Commissioner Dawson moved to grant approval of the minor exterior modifications of an existing tenant space, Islander Pub, as presented on formal site plans and elevations dated May 7, 2001, incorporating the findings of the Staff Report and in accordance with the Mercer Island Town Center District Development and Design Requirements of the Mercer Island Code, subject to the following conditions:
