Stratouly told he’ll have to jump through more hoops

Dean Stratouly, the Congress Group president who’s doing a controversial renovation of 124 Chestnut Street, recently met with neighborhood residents and officials.

Basically, they told him he still needs the Architectural Commission’s OK for the exterior of the townhouse before he can proceed with that work.

In other words, he has to play nice-nice with them – or else.

From the Beacon Hill Times:

Among the approximately 20 neighbors in attendance at last week’s meeting, the brick-red color shown in the latest façade rendering was a resounding concern, but project architect David Hasin responded that he would be willing to change the color of the brickwork to better complement its surroundings.

The brick color is just one of the concerns, needless to say.
