ZAB Considers Additions To Landmark on Adeline By RICHARD BRENNEMAN

Tuesday June 07, 2005

The Zoning Adjustments Board on Thursday will consider the addition of a fourth story to the recently landmarked Frederick H. Dakin Warehouse at 2750 Adeline St. 

The structure, built in the wake of the 1906 earthquake, features the fireproof Dakin White Hollow Building Block, a creation of the structure’s builder and namesake. 

The building, designed by George T. Plowman and noted Berkeley architect Walter H. Ratcliff, was designated a city landmark on Aug. 9, 2004. 

The proposal before ZAB calls for an addition to a fourth floor, the elimination of one live/work unit and the addition of two dwelling units. 

Also on the ZAB agenda are a proposed addition of 855 square feet to the Aquatic Park Metro Lofts Project, the installation of two fast-food restaurants in vacant commercial space in a building as 2618-2620 Telegraph Ave., and a proposal to raise and expand a residence at 2343 Stuart St. 

A preview presentation of the David Brower Center at 2200 Fulton Street has been rescheduled for June 23, said Principal Planner Greg Powell. 

There’s no Planning Commission meeting this week.
