DDRC VOTES AGAINST
FANE TOWER DESIGN
Tuesday, April 8, 2019. On Monday night in a packed meeting room, the Downtown Design Review Committee voted against the design of Hope Point Tower.
Gianni Ria, architect for Fane Group, made a presentation of detail changes requested by the DDRC at its previous meeting. Then, one by one, members of the public offered comments on the project.
In a unanimous vote, the DDRC reccommended that the I-195 Commission reject the design as incompatible with its surroundings in scale and design and in its relationship to the adjacent public park.
