Overview of Fulton House at Landmarks Commission on 2/25/21

Summary of Landmarks Commission Meeting

Fulton House was conceptually reviewed on 2/25/21 by the Landmarks Commission. This means that no vote was taken, and the project has not received any approvals at this point in time. The meeting can be viewed on youtube by clicking here. The link should take you to the correct time to view the project, but if that doesn't work, then the start time for the presentation is approximately 3:30:00. A summary of the comments made during the discussion by committee members are:


  • Consider increasing the design and community value with exterior details such as artwork near the retail space by local artists. 
  • Some recommended studying brick as the dominant material to match surrounding historic buildings. 
  • They liked that the developers are retaining the current footprint of the historic building and the setbacks as presented. 
  • The density of the building was supported by some but not necessarily the height. The massing was discussed, mentioning that the setback aids in minimizing the overall scale of the building. The setback also aids in breaking down the massing. 
  • Committee split regarding height, some preferring 3 stories, some approved of the proposed 5-stories.
  • Going this tall in a residential portion of the historic district needs to have more consideration 
  • Few said they needed more time to study it, but some initial reactions are that the interpretation of the scale allows it to feel less monolithic. They are concerned about the precedent it may set for future development but there are many densities and heights on this road
  • Parking cut out on tree lawn was discussed, some would prefer that it was not for parking and instead for a community benefit.


Feedback Submitted to the Landmarks Commission Prior to the Meeting

Prior to the Landmarks Commission meeting, a link to the CoUrbanize comments as well as a file with all of the comments was shared with the Commission members. In addition, a summary of the comments was included, which follows, exactly as it was sent to the Landmarks Commission.

"Since the project page launched on February 2nd, there have been 356 comments shared about the project and the project page has had 689 unique visitors. You can find all of the feedback that has been collected from the site to date here (also attached). I have provided a summary of the common themes below:

 

  • Community members would like to see the existing commercial tenant remain as part of any proposed development 
  • Community members expressed concerns about the height of the proposed development. There were also community members who voiced support for increased density in the neighborhood
  • Community members expressed concern about 8 parking spaces not being enough to accommodate the number of residential units proposed. There were also community members who voiced support for limited vehicle parking and increased space for bike storage
  • Community members expressed support for adding pedestrian activity and commercial activity in this area of the neighborhood and suggested additions such as street trees, lighting, and bike racks
  • Residents who live adjacent to the proposed development expressed concern over balconies that could look into their backyards and homes 
  • 80% of respondents feel it is very important to maintain pedestrian access during the construction phase of this project"
