City of Alamo Heights
6116 Broadway
San Antonio, Texas 78209
My name is Robert Kendall. I am the principal owner of 521 Argo Avenue (MCK 521 LLC) in the Cottage District of Alamo
Heights. My family has owned this home for over 35 years and plans to continue ownership long-term.
I am writing to protest the proposed secondary development at 525 Argo Avenue. The new construction of this over-size, 2-
story structure looming over and viewing into our yard, pool, patio, primary bedroom, and living room is of serious concern and
very problematic. It will single-handedly undermine the privacy, value, and use of our property if approved by the City of Alamo
Heights.
For many years our family has lived and owned homes here, and we understand the charm of the Cottage District of Alamo
Heights – – small homes in close proximity to each other. We also understand the practicality of garages and casitas, as well as
the value to the homeowner and the City of improving properties. What we do not agree with is the idea of a full-size casita sitting
atop a large double car garage in a small rear yard. The proposed structure is literally almost half the size of the recently
expanded main house at 525 Argo.
This project is pushing the boundaries of ‘cottage’ and is rapidly approaching a small version of Stone Oak. That is not the
Cottage District. It is also important to note that to the best of my knowledge there are currently no two-story parking/casita
structures in the rear yards of any of the homes in the 500 block of Argo Avenue and we hope you will not set a new precedent by
approving the construction of this proposed structure.
The proposed structure would provide direct views of our living room and the primary bedroom, as well as the landscaped seating
area of the patio, pool and yard. The view from our home would then be a massive, 20-foot-high, 20-foot-wide Hardie Plank wall
that looks very much like a Public Storage unit. Along with 2 elevations and 4 distinct rooflines, there are also 3 second-story
windows providing views directly into our bedroom, pool, and yard. In one fell swoop we would lose the Cottage District aesthetic,
the natural open aspect of our neighborhood (i.e. a view of sky and trees), all of our privacy and, as important due to Texas
weather, a significant loss of airflow due to the height of the proposed structure.
This project gives us zero possibility of maintaining our privacy or our treasured neighborhood aesthetics. We cannot fence it to a
height to block it and we cannot look past it. While aesthetics and beauty are in the eye of the beholder, a 957 square-foot, two-
story high, painted structure of cement Hardie Plank in a small back yard is a difficult contender for either.
Please note, we would be amenable to and would not protest a one-story garage or a one-story casita or both. Should the owners
of 525 Argo Avenue choose to do so that is their prerogative. However I must strenuously protest this two-story oversized
building and the never-to-be-regained aspect of the loss of our privacy and property values.
Respectfully yours,
Robert R. Kendall

I am the principal owner of 521 Argo Avenue (MCK 521 LLC) in the Cottage District of Alamo Heights. My family has owned this home for over 35 years and plans to continue ownership long-term. I am writing to protest the proposed secondary development at 525 Argo Avenue. The new construction of this over-size, 2- story structure looming over and viewing into our yard, pool, patio, primary bedroom, and living room is of serious concern and very problematic. It will single-handedly undermine the privacy, value, and use of our property if approved by the City of Alamo Heights. For many years our family has lived and owned homes here, and we understand the charm of the Cottage District of Alamo Heights – – small homes in close proximity to each other. We also understand the practicality of garages and casitas, as well as the value to the homeowner and the City of improving properties. What we do not agree with is the idea of a full-size casita sitting atop a large double car garage in a small rear yard. The proposed structure is literally almost half the size of the recently expanded main house at 525 Argo. This project is pushing the boundaries of ‘cottage’ and is rapidly approaching a small version of Stone Oak. That is not the Cottage District. It is also important to note that to the best of my knowledge there are currently no two-story parking/casita structures in the rear yards of any of the homes in the 500 block of Argo Avenue and we hope you will not set a new precedent by approving the construction of this proposed structure. The proposed structure would provide direct views of our living room and the primary bedroom, as well as the landscaped seating area of the patio, pool and yard. The view from our home would then be a massive, 20-foot-high, 20-foot-wide Hardie Plank wall that looks very much like a Public Storage unit. Along with 2 elevations and 4 distinct rooflines, there are also 3 second-story windows providing views directly into our bedroom, pool, and yard. In one fell swoop we would lose the Cottage District aesthetic, the natural open aspect of our neighborhood (i.e. a view of sky and trees), all of our privacy and, as important due to Texas weather, a significant loss of airflow due to the height of the proposed structure. This project gives us zero possibility of maintaining our privacy or our treasured neighborhood aesthetics. We cannot fence it to a height to block it and we cannot look past it. While aesthetics and beauty are in the eye of the beholder, a 957 square-foot, two- story high, painted structure of cement Hardie Plank in a small back yard is a difficult contender for either. Please note, we would be amenable to and would not protest a one-story garage or a one-story casita or both. Should the owners of 525 Argo Avenue choose to do so that is their prerogative. However I must strenuously protest this two-story oversized building and the never-to-be-regained aspect of the loss of our privacy and property values. Respectfully yours, Robert R.
