The request for construction of a new two-story commercial building at 873-877 Island Park Drive was given conceptual approval with board comments to restudy the signage location and possibly incorporate into the horizontal canopies, to restudy the awning placement (currently too high), to confirm the number and size of downspouts regarding code, to restudy the color scheme to lighten the building, to restudy the pavers and planter on the west façade so that it reacts to and integrates with the building, and to provide building lighting design and details.
