City Council President Opposes Fane Tower
WELCOME TO PROVIDENCE'S
President of the Providence City Council David Salvatore announced on August 6th that he was not in favor of putting the 600-foot Hope Point Tower in the location favored by developer Jason Fane.
Salvatore joined other voices saying that while it "would not be a good fit" on Parcel 42 in the 195 land, there might be other sites in the city in which it would fit right in. His comments came a few weeks after the Ordnance Committee of the City Council refused to recommend granting the height waiver the Fane Group needs to build on the parcel. The full story and background details appeared in a Providence Journal article you can read by clicking HERE.
