20180111 Caroline St Apts Revision 4-17-19 BALZ E TUCI( Architccturc qte April 16, 2019 l 7 201,9 Ms.Tamie Ehinger, Chairman City of Saratoga Springs Design Review Commission Via Email:bbirgegsaratoga-springs.org Re: 24 Caroline Street Apartments Ms. Ehinger, The project at 24 Caroline Street received approval from the Design Review Commission on November 30111, 2017. It was determined during the building permit application review process that the Building Department had a different interpretation on the allowable number of stories with a single means of egress than we had. Rather than redesign the building to eliminate a story,we sought and received a variance from the State on October 22'"1, 2018, granting us the ability to have a fourth story with one means of egress,with some conditions. One of those conditions was that we provide a fire escape ladder from the bedroom of the fourth floor unit, providing access to grade at the rear of the site and a path of egress via an easement across the neighboring Ice House property. We have spent the last few months working with Duane Miller on a suitable design for the fire escape ladder system,one that the Building Department will accept. The enclosed north and east elevations detail that system. It entails a small egress balcony outside the fourth floor bedroom windows that provides access to a wall mounted emergency escape ladder down to the second floor terrace. From the terrace, the occupant can reach grade via a retractable emergency escape ladder. As this is a change to the back of the building and will not be visible from Putnam Street or Caroline Street, once a building is erected on the currently vacant Caroline Street parcel, we are hoping that it can be approved with an administrative action or as a consent agenda item at the next DRC meeting. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments.
