the North-I44 Historic District Standards led to these preliminary findings:
- The construction site, 4176 Blaine, is located in the North I-44 Local Historic District.
- The proposed design complies with most of the requirements for new construction in
the North I-44 District Standards. On the whole, given its contemporary design, the
project can be considered generally in compliance with the intent of the Standards.

The block has a mix of different
architectural styles that allow the new construction to fit well with the streetscape.

will be reviewed and approved by the Cultural Resources Office to ensure compliance with the
