Jim Shelton, design director Genslser San Antonio

we were onthe agenda on Aug. 1, we oved it back to this date

staff asked why, and requested a meeting

we had a meeting with staff, with Kevin Covey, they had more opinions on how to treat the existing facade, more than you all had . . . we ended up getting the revisions to you . . .

this corner of the building, we feel we have a little more flexibility to adapt the

staff said we want a clear definitino between the old and the new

fourth floor ir still set back, roof terrace

we will have to replace the brick, very deteriorated

back up material has been pretty much destroyed

we're suggesting take the facade back, rebuild the fenestrations of the existing building

fenestration pattern on eastern side — — similar to other fenestration patterns . . .

MG — in addition, you're creating documents

FISH — would coneptual approval on items 1-2, final approval 3-4, would allow your scheduled

FETZER — I applaude your efforts here, as you're developing this, there are two existing details on the facade, . . one is on the north facade, are those green enamel panels, or wha are those materials???
