Panel votes to op­pose skyscraper plan

Woonsocket Call - - REGION/OBITUARIES -

PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — A key Prov­i­dence com­mis­sion has given the thumbs down to a pro­posal to build what would be the tallest skyscraper in Rhode Is­land.

The Prov­i­dence City Com­mis­sion voted Tues­day against ad­just­ing zon­ing rules so a New York de­vel­oper can con­struct a 600-foot tower. Zon­ing rules cur­rently limit con­struc­tion in the area to 100 feet.

The mea­sure now moves to the City Coun­cil, which will de­cide whether to ap­prove the zon­ing change and let the project con­tinue.

De­vel­oper Ja­son Fane has pro­posed a high-rise res­i­den­tial build­ing on a sec­tion of pub­lic land freed up by the re­lo­ca­tion of In­ter­state 195.
