Hearing is now scheduled for October. Looks like they're doing everything possible to keep the application alive, while extending the timeframe to the maximum allowed.

Exterior stairs.

Those are some tall exterior exit stairs! Are there any local examples of something similar? I can imagine with our weather it isn't a common strategy for this many floors?

The Staff Report explains that external stairs are a no go on high-rise buildings:

Furthermore, external stairwells for high rise buildings do not comply with the Building
Code and would not be allowed as stated by the Life-Safety Section of BDS.

Exterior Stairs

There's that PSU example on SW College street between 6th and Broadway. They are covered, but open with mesh on the sides similar to this.

Seems like a somewhat large oversight if those stairs aren't up to code, no?

I’m guessing the open stairs don’t meet smoke proof requirements for high rise buildings.
