City Council Ordinance Committee OKs Fane Tower Height

(Providence, RI)  --  The Providence City Council's ordinance committee is recommending zoning changes to the full council to allow a new skyscraper to be built at its current proposed location.  The three-to-one vote with one councilor abstaining on Thursday approves the maximum building height of the proposed Fane Tower to go to six-hundred feet.  New York developer Jason Fane wants to erect a 46-story luxury residential tower on Dyer Street, on former I-195 land, but the proposal has been criticized for flying in the face of the city's zoning ordinance.  The committee previously voted against the project but re-reviewed it after a public hearing last month where Fane personally advocated for it.
