  • 1305 11th Street is a contributing structure in the West Boulevard Historic District. The applicant requests a building permit to replace one historic window on the north (non-primary) façade. The window is located on the shower wall of the bathroom. The project involves removing the sash and infilling glass block in order to mitigate moisture infiltration and provide privacy. The original frame, sill, pocket weights, etc. will be retained and the original sash will be stored on the property. The City and SHPO concurred no adverse effect on 6/10/20 given the window’s location. 20RS007/CIHR20-0009.
