Brick + Beam Detroit

In a Historic District, are there any exemptions given for Basement Egress Window Requirements?

Asked by Tom Toft at 1:15pm on Mar 11 2020

I have ground level basement windows. The overall size (WxH) meets state requirements for proper egress. However the bottom of the window is 54" to the basement floor and requirement is no more than 44". If I raise the floor then I violate the 7' overall basement height requirement. SUGGESTIONS??
