1. The entrance should be Option B, with the entrance door in the middle of the entrance structure facing the corner where it interacts with the street.

2. The final building absolutely should include the large side windows seen in the picture in this article and on page 31 of the presentation. The blank face shown in the entrance renderings on 28-30 looks awful. And it would be really cool if that green space next to those windows offered a way to look inside and see what's going on!

3. This article could use some constructive suggestions - all I see here is the same kind of vague "not good enough" comments that people like the C100, HPRB, and others throw out to just bog processes down by sending them back to the drawing board again and again. I think this building reflects the same aesthetic the Anacostia and Shaw libraries do, and if they build it out of the right materials (brick, stone) it will look great.

Also one thing, all of DDOT's renderings show shadows cast as if the sun is to the north of the building - clearly wrong.
