Office Depot DES (A-2020-0096Conditions Document 1 Office Depot - DES (A-2020-0096) DESIGN REVIEW COMPLIANCE REPORT DATE: April 22, 2020 TO: Michael A. Lopata FROM: Alan Tiefenbach, Associate City Planner SUBJECT: Office Depot - DES (A-2020-0096) PT-USRIF Meridian LLC OWNER: DESCRIPTION OF APPLICANT'S REQUEST The applicant, Michael A. Lopata, requests Administrative Design Review (DES) approval for a minor façade change to the front of the Office Depot. Currently, the storefront façade of the Office Depot is finished with a reflective material and painted wood fretting. This appearance was out of character with the rest of the Shopping Center but was consistent at the time with the Office Depot branding. Since then, the Office Depot brand has undergone a redesign to a more contemporary style. This proposal is to remove the reflective metal surfacing and replace it with an EIFS surface of texture and color consistent with adjacent storefronts. The main Office Depot sign will be replaced with a new one, and four additional individually-lettered signs below the main sign will be removed. The overall signage will be reduced. A separate application for a sign permit will be required. The site is located at 3545 E. Fairview Ave. and is within the C-G Zone District.
