Latest on Fane Tower

As GoLocalProv reported, last week the Providence City Council’s Ordinance Committee reversed course and voted 3-1 with one abstention to approve the height variance on the 46-story Fane Tower.

About the vote, GoLocal wrote, “One of the keys was the reversal of Chairman and lame duck Councilman Terry Hassett who had previously voted against the project. Also voting in favor of the project on Thursday night were Councilwomen  Jo-Ann Ryan and Carmen Castillo. Councilman Bryan Principe voted against and Councilwoman Mary Kay Harris refused to cast a vote, but did not recuse herself.”

The project now goes before the full Providence City Council. The Building Trade Unions are putting a full court press of council members to approve the project.
