A. Johnston Building, 212 S. Tryon Street, Charlotte — S&R Report
The applicant proposes to replace an existing non-original ATM near the front entrance with a new metal doorway.  The existing awning over the entrance would be removed and two smaller awnings would be installed on the adjacent bays. Two new doorways would be cut into the south side elevation, and a wooden wall feature and deck would be installed in the alley.  Two new interior frameless-glass storefronts would be installed in the lobby area to define a new restaurant space.  A back-of-house staircase would be constructed connecting the new restaurant space with the basement.
There was no quorum at the Design Review Committee. The Committee unanimously voted to recommend that the plans as presented be conceptually approved, with the exception of the proposed exterior wood cladding that would surround the new side entrance. The applicant has revised the plans and now seeks approval for a COA for the project.
