Staff report
Robert Pfefferle with Hines North Loop Green LLC has applied for a Certificate of Appropriateness application to construct a new office building located at 316 Third Avenue North. The site is located in the Minneapolis Warehouse Historic District.
Staff recommendation: The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development recommends that the Heritage Preservation Commission adopt staff findings and approve the Certificate of Appropriateness to allow for the construction of a new seven-story, approximately 263,000 square foot office building located at 316 Third Avenue North, subject to the following conditions:
  1. By ordinance, approvals are valid for a period of two years from the date of the decision unless required permits are obtained and the action approved is substantially begun and proceeds in a continuous basis toward completion. Upon written request and for good cause, the planning director may grant up to a one year extension if the request is made in writing no later than February 3, 2017.
  2. By ordinance, all approvals granted in this Certificate of Appropriateness shall remain in effect as long as all of the conditions and guarantees of such approvals are observed. Failure to comply with such conditions and guarantees shall constitute a violation of this Certificate of Appropriateness and may result in termination of the approval.
  3. There shall be no signs located near the top of the building. All signs should be designed in accordance with the Design Guidelines for On-Premise Signs and Awnings.
