Plans for what would be the tallest building in Providence hit a bump in the road recently. The Providence City Plan Comission voted against recommending approval of zoning changes for the controversial 46-story Hope Point Tower.
The commission’s vote came despite a planning staff report that found the project complied with the city’s comprehensive plan, which encourages mixed-use development downtown.
In a statement, Fane Organization spokesman Dante Bellini said, “We will take time to reflect upon their decision and any next steps.”
The commission’s decision is advisory only meaning the City Council has the ultimate authority to change the city’s zoning.
