13– 1 HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION APPLICATION FOR A CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS NOVEMBER 2, 2022 HR- 2022-156160 W. B. SMITH BUILDING 316 CONGRESS AVENUE PROPOSAL PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS Construct a new tower addition to the W. B. Smith Building and adjacent historic age buildings. 1.Stabilize & preserve north & east (street facing) wall 2. Deconstruct & reconstruct portions of the south wall 3. Demolish the west (alley) wall. 4. Build a new tower construction setback 20’ from the historic façade. ARCHITECTURE The W. B. Smith building (316-318 Congress Avenue) was zoned a local landmark in 1982; Joseph Hume may have built it in 1883. W. B. Smith, a dry goods merchant, bought the property in 1884, and the family retained ownership until 1917. An Austin Up to Date, 1894 article describes W.B. Smith, dry goods as “a well-known old and important established business house of this City.” 1 The City of Austin’s Historic Design Standards (March 2021) are based on the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and are used to evaluate projects at historic landmarks. The following standards apply to the proposed project: DESIGN STANDARDS Commercial additions 1. Location An addition should preserve the character of the historic building and site. Visual subordinance to and compatibility with the historic building can be achieved through location, scale, massing, design, and materials. 1.1 Locate additions at the rear and sides of historic buildings to minimize visual impact. 1.2 Set back additions from the front wall at a distance that preserves the perceived massing of the historic building, considering the pedestrian view from the opposite side of the primary street. a. Additions must be set back at least 20’ from the front wall of the historic building. 1.3 Minimize the loss of historic fabric by connecting additions to the existing building through the most noninvasive location and methods. 1.4 Additions are not appropriate for all historic landmarks and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The addition is located at the property’s rear and initially setback 20 feet from the historic façade. However, there is a significant or total loss of fabric in all other locations, including the rear and side walls. 2. Scale, massing, and height 2.1 Design the addition to complement the scale and massing of the historic building. 2.2 Design the addition to appear subordinate to the historic building. 2.3 Minimize the appearance of the addition from the primary street(s). …

16 – 1 HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION PERMITS IN NATIONAL REGISTER HISTORIC DISTRICTS NOVEMBER 2, 2022 HR-2022-146276 OLD WEST AUSTIN 1506 W. 32ND STREET PROPOSAL ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH DESIGN STANDARDS Demolish a ca. 1938 house and detached garage and replace with new construction. PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS 1) Demolish existing house and detached garage. 2) Construct new residence. The proposed new building is two stories in height, oriented with the garage fronting on 32nd Street. It is composed of four hipped-roof rectangular masses, connected by hyphens. It is clad in unpainted cedar and stone, with fenestration comprising mostly fixed and undivided windows of various dimensions with regular rhythm at secondary façades. One-story Minimal Traditional house with cross-gabled roof, boxed cornice returns, arched front door, and brick veneer cladding. Replacement windows are 1:1. The house at 1506 W. 32nd Street, listed in City directories as 1508 W. 32nd Street, was constructed in 1938 for Jack Underwood and his family. Underwood, who worked as a salesman before serving in the Army during World War II, sold the house to William and Lillian Chenault in the late 1940s. Chenault worked as a farmer, and his two grown daughters, Polly and Sadie, lived at home while they worked and went to school. Around 1950, Ernest E. and Helen Hawkins purchased the property. Ernest Hawkins was a sales manager at Jack Stableford Pontiac. The City of Austin’s Historic Design Standards (March 2021) are based on the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and are used to evaluate projects in National Register districts. The following standards apply to the proposed project: Residential new construction 1. Location The proposed building appears appropriately set back from the street. 2. Orientation The proposed building’s orientation is not consistent with the predominant orientation of contributing buildings on the same block. 3. Scale, massing, and height and 4. Proportions The proposed building’s scale, massing, and height are not consistent with the character of the surrounding district; however, much of the incompatible massing does not appear to be highly visible from the street due to lot topography. 5. Design and style The proposed building is acceptably differentiated from nearby historic buildings, but the design and style do not respond to the character of the district. 6. Roofs The proposed hipped roof forms are compatible. 7. Exterior walls The proposed masonry and wood siding are somewhat compatible, though brick is a more appropriate masonry choice for …

Historic Review Proposed Work Narrative 1506 W 32nd St We propose to build a new residence for a young family with generational roots in the Bryker Woods Neighborhood. The existing structures on the property are in disrepair and have been modified over time, presumably without permit and without regard to historical design standards. Little stewardship of the natural landscape has been undertaken and the site is in severe degradation from neglect. Our proposal is considerate of trees, topography, natural light, material, texture, scale, setbacks, development guidelines, soil conditions, efficiency and economy. The site contains Del Rio clay, arguably the most expansive clay in our area, dictating a pier supported foundation. The discreet rectangular forms allow for an economical layout and a limited required quantity of piers. These discreet forms are linked by simple bridge connections. The severe slope of the site, a desire to limit hardscape/ impervious cover and a Garage Placement overlay have positioned the garage at the front of the property while also providing the necessary width for side‐loaded garage access. The discreet forms step down along the descending natural grade to remain rooted into the site. To comply with the Visitability Ordinance, the entry to the house occurs at the mid‐point of the linear footprint, connecting to a centrally located stair with rooms radiating from the central stair core providing efficient circulation. The siting of the house is organized along a central spine allowing for generous natural buffer zones between the flanking properties, further diminishing the scale of the house at the street and providing spaces ripe for rich and textured landscaping. The forms, shapes, materials and finishes are free from particular stylistic reference, concerned more with a simple and composed elegance through careful and thoughtful detailing. The fundamental construction techniques present in the design can be traced back to a rich architectural history of pragmatism.

HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION PERMITS IN NATIONAL REGISTER HISTORIC DISTRICTS NOVEMBER 2, 2022 HR-2022-152876 OLD WEST AUSTIN 2512 WOOLDRIDGE DRIVE 17 – 1 PROPOSAL ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH Demolish a ca. 1937 contributing house and detached garage and construct a new residence. PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS Construct a two-story masonry house with attached carport. The proposed house’s fenestration includes divided-light windows and arched doorways. A one-story mass, connected via carport, extends diagonally from the house’s main two- story form. Two-story asymmetrical Tudor Revival house clad in stucco with faux half-timbering at gable ends and covered entryway. The house at 2512 Wooldridge Drive was constructed for Annie Beasley in 1937. Early residents included a rancher and his family and a University of Texas professor. The house’s longest-term occupants in the early and mid-twentieth century were Janice and Vernon McGee. Janice McGee, a violinist, was a charter member of the Austin Symphony and served on a screening committee for symphony hopefuls. Vernon McGee began his career as a Capitol reporter but later became the first executive director of the Texas State Employment Commission. McGee was later appointed staff director of the Texas State Legislative Budget Board, where he served until the late 1960s. He then worked as an administrative chief of staff under Governor Preston Smith. DESIGN STANDARDS The City of Austin’s Historic Design Standards (March 2021) are based on the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and are used to evaluate projects in National Register districts.mThe following standards apply to the proposed project: Residential new construction 1. Location The proposed building appears to be appropriately sited and set back. 2. Orientation The proposed building’s orientation is consistent with the design standards. 3. Scale, massing, and height The proposed building’s scale and height appears appropriate. While the diagonal massing of the one-story portion of the house is not in keeping with the surrounding district, it does not appear highly visible from the street. 4. Proportions The proposed building’s proportions, design, and style appear to somewhat reflect those of the surrounding district. 6. Roofs The proposed cross-gabled roof at the house’s main mass is compatible; while the flat-roofed porch and shed dormers are less so, they appear to help break up the monolithic massing at the two-story portion of the house. 7. Exterior walls The proposed masonry is mostly compatible with the surrounding district, though brick or stucco would be a more appropriate cladding choice. 8. Windows …

HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION PERMITS IN NATIONAL REGISTER HISTORIC DISTRICTS NOVEMBER 2, 2022 PR-2022-144178; GF-2022-154608 WEST LINE 1006 EASON STREET 18 – 1 PROPOSAL Demolish a ca. 1928 house. ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH One-story side-gabled house with a central, partial-width gabled porch with deep eaves, supported by Classical columns. The house is clad in wood siding and has 1:1 paired vinyl replacement windows. 1006 Eason Street was built around 1928 for Hyden A. and Anna Albert and their family. Hyden Albert, Sr., worked as a carpenter. His wife, Anna E., remained in the home after his death in 1951, living there until at least 1959. Anna Albert served multiple terms as vice-president and president of the Business and Professional Women’s Club during the 1960s. Two of their sons, John and Victor, became Naval and Air Force pilots, while H. A. Albert Jr. became a polygraph operator. PROPERTY EVALUATION The main house contributes to the West Line National Register district. Designation Criteria—Historic Landmark 1) The building is more than 50 years old. 2) The building appears to retain moderate integrity. 3) Properties must meet two criteria for landmark designation (LDC §25-2-352).

The property does not appear to have significant historical associations. c. Archaeology. The property was not evaluated for its potential to yield significant data concerning the human history or prehistory of the region. d. Community value. The property does not possess a unique location, physical characteristic, or significant feature that contributes to the character, image, or cultural identity of the city, the neighborhood, or a particular demographic group. e. Landscape feature. The property is not a significant natural or designed landscape with artistic, aesthetic, cultural, or historical value to the city.

PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS The proposed new building is a two-story house clad in masonry with vertical siding accents. It has a roughly trapezoidal plan, conforming to the lot shape. Its irregular roof is clad in standing-seam metal, with a large dormer at the rear elevation. Fenestration includes fixed undivided windows throughout and fully glazed entry doors. The existing building was approved for demolition in 2022. DESIGN STANDARDS The City of Austin’s Historic Design Standards (March 2021) are based on the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and are used to evaluate projects in National Register districts. The following standards apply: Residential new construction 1. Location The proposed building appears to be located appropriately on the triangular lot. 2. Orientation The proposed building’s orientation is compatible, with the carport and drive opening onto the secondary street. 3. Scale, massing, and height The proposed building’s height is somewhat incompatible with nearby one-story contributing buildings. Its massing and scale appear more monolithic than nearby contributing buildings. 4. Proportions The proposed building’s irregular proportions are not compatible with the surrounding district. 5. Design and style The proposed design and style is consistent throughout; however, it does not reflect the character of the district. 6. Roofs The proposed irregular roofline is not consistent with rooflines of contributing properties in the district. While the large dormer appears overwhelming, it does not appear visible from the primary street frontage. 7. Exterior walls The proposed masonry and vertical siding are somewhat incompatible with the surrounding district. 8. Windows and doors Proposed irregular, undivided windows are not compatible with the district. 11. Attached garages and carports The proposed carport appears compatible, and its location at the secondary street frontage is consistent with other properties in the district. Summary The project does not meet most of the applicable standards. COMMITTEE FEEDBACK Modify roofline and fenestration to be more in keeping with the neighborhood. Add more fenestration and use fewer masonry elements, taking cues from the surrounding contributing buildings (e.g., lap siding, shingle roofing, gabled or hipped roofline). Do not use a shed roof on the dormer, though the dormer position at the rear of the building is favorable. Reconsider vertical siding, as it appears to overwhelm the building form in renderings. …
