2711/2717 Horley Street
Comment on Development Application DE419165 under RT-11 Zoning
21 August 2015
This application is very similar to one that was recently approved in the same block of Horley Street. We would expect the current application to incorporate the changes required at 2757 Horley Street (e.g. relocation of several living rooms). Some of the windows at the ends of the building are much smaller. They should be similar in size to those at 2757 Horley Street to maximize light and cross ventilation.
The contemporary style and materials of this development will help to differentiate it from the more traditional style of 2757 Horley Street. We appreciate the desire of the builders to reuse plans, but we would like to see more separation between developments built according to the same basic plan. Perhaps a good criterion would be that they should not both be visible from any specific location along the street.
