Title
Demolition of an auxiliary structure (B)

Petition HP-21-27. Kary Huffman, Florida House Corporation of Alpha Phi, agent for Michelle Ardern, Phi Sigma, Inc., owner. Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish an accessory garage. Located at 517 SW 10th Street. This building is a contributing structure to the University Heights Historic District - South. Related to HP-21-25, HP-21-26, & HP-21-28.

The contributing accessory structure is not described in the Florida Master Site file for the property. The house was built in 1960 according to the Alachua County Property Appraisers office.

Brick is the primary building material on the garage structure with two wooden garage doors and a metal roof.

This project involves the demolition of the accessory structure. The approximately 441 square foot building is a contributing structure to the University Heights Historic District - South and currently serves as a garage. The proposal is to demolish the structure to allow space for a new residential building. As part of this request, if this petition is approved, the requirement for the 90-day demolition...
