A sort of update,
This just in on the Landmarks Commission May agenda.
Proposed reface of the existing non-historic illuminated rooftop “Santa Fe” sign with new illuminated “Motorola” copy on existing structure, detailed in plans dated 3/12/12.
Staff recommends that the Committee find that the project, with the following condition, meets the Commission’s Guidelines for Alterations to Historic Buildings and New Construction, and Standards 9 and 10 of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation of Historic Buildings and therefore, the project will not have an adverse effect on the significant historical and architectural features of the landmark district and approve the project with the following condition to be reviewed and approved by Historic Preservation staff:
1. As proposed, the “Motorola” copy shall be consistent with the existing “Sante Fe” copy in terms of color and illumination levels at night. Should the project scope include painting the existing metal sign structure, which is to remain, the paint color shall be a dark, nonreflective color
