Minor Proposal to Add Windows to the Tivoli Building

At last night’s meeting of ANC 1A, there was a brief presentation about a plan to add a few windows to the north side of the Tivoli Theater building, which is officially listed as a historic landmark. The additional windows in question are considered a minor change, so the Commission did not weigh in on it (the decision being within the jurisdiction of the Historic Preservation Office). However, I did want to comment as one of the goals of historic preservation is to ensure that buildings remain useful and relevant.

There was general consensus last night in support of the proposal. The proposed windows (if you can find them in the bottom image below), will be very difficult to see, are located on the red brick wall that abuts the former Ruby Tuesday location, and makes the interior of the building usable for a new tenant. These are all good things and we certainly wish all the best for those working to bring more business to the community.
