C.3 Falcon Tower One (Development Permit / Formal)
Stephen Boyd - ARC Studio
Motion of Support with Conditions
● The Committee feels that EIFS does not meet the intent of the Direct Control
Regulation (1025.4.6.a); however, this cladding material would be acceptable so
long as the proposed balcony railing / glazing detail shown in the materials
board (Pg 28 of the EDC packae) is implemented in the final, constructed
building. To this end, the Committee recommends that the Development Permit
package includes this critical detail.
● The Committee recommends that the Development Permit package includes an
existing site plan and interim landscape plan (ie. showing Tower 1 and the
transition to the existing public realm to the south).
● The Committee recommends reconsidering the placement of benches in the front
plaza area, in order to provide better access to the plaza and building entrances.
In addition, the public realm design could benefit from better definition of the
spaces within the plaza (amenity areas, building and CRU entries, etc) through
the use of surface materials, furnishings and landscape features.
