20180332 DeVall Residence Correspondance . , Preservation Foundation January 17, 2018 Mr. Steve Rowland,Chair PRESERVATION Design Review Commission FOR e7(EARS city Han .t' • f--- 7 474 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 4 ',. RE: 59 Franklin Street—New Construction i..‘ Dear Steve, . i — , The Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation has reviewed the materials submitted for a Design Review Commission advisory opinion on the proposed subdivision of the lot at 59 Franklin Street and the concept drawings for the proposed single-family residence. Board of Directors The Greek Revival style house located at 59 Franklin Street was constructed circa 1830 MattheEVeiteh and is a contributing building to the West Side Historic District listed on the National w . President Register of Historic Places. This house and the residence at 63 Franklin Street are two of the best examples of the vernacular Greek Revival style in Saratoga Springs. This James Gold Vice President district's period of significance, 1840s to the early 1900s, incorporates a variety and architectural styles ranging from the Greek Revival style to the later period's Queen Linda Harvey-Opiwk Anne,Italianate,and Second Empire styles. Treasurer Alicia Czwenvinski The Foundation does not object to the subdivision of the lot. However,the Foundation Secretary has concerns about the proposed single-family residence. Per the Historic District Design Caroline Cardene Guidelines for New Construction —New Buildings: Cynthia Corbett Brennan Drake Adam N.Favro • Architectural styles for new construction should reflect and represent the period Liz Israel in which it was built. The style of new construction should be compatible with Samantha Kercull surrounding buildings,but should not give the false impression of being historic. Douglas Kerr Richard King Construction methods and materials can differentiate new construction from Michelle Paquette-Dmel historic structures. Cindy Spence Bill Willard • The placement and orientation of new buildings should be consistent with Meredith Wooliord neighboring buildings. Maintaining a consistent streetscape and façade setback is recommended. James Kettlewc11 • Building mass should be appropriate to the size of the lot. A large lot can emeritus generally accommodate a larger structure,while a small structure is more appropriate for a smaller lot. • Building height and scale should be consistent with the existing streetscape and Samantha Bosshart neighboring building patterns. Historic streetscapes often have a variation in Executive Director building scale and massing that contribute to the visual interest and unique historic character of the street. Variation is promoted. but extreme difference should be avoided. • New construction materials should be compatible with and complement the surrounding historic buildings. Contemporary materials may be used provided they do not negatively impact historic character of the neighboring buildings. The use of vinyl is discouraged. 112 Spring Stirrct. Suite 23 SArAtiiga Sprinp, NY 12866 31i.1-3$7-5031) 't: The Foundation objects to the design of the proposed house. It too closely mimics 59 Franklin Street and has the potential to give the false impression of being historic.The design should be compatible with and take cues from the surrounding buildings,but should not duplicate historic styles. It does not reflect and represent the period in which it is built,2018. An attached garage is not compatible with the district; it should be a separate structure. The Foundation respectfully requests that you take these concerns into consideration when reviewing of this application.
