Evanston's Skyscraper Plan Gets Scaled Down
In about two weeks, developers plan to present the Evanston city council with a new proposal for a shorter building. John Kennedy with the Evanston Coalition for Responsible Development is against the tower plan. He doesn't think a revised proposal will make a difference.
KENNEDY: I don't look forward to a new proposal from the developer because I don't think the building as proposed as a condo building makes sense for Evanston.
Some city council members have similar concerns. Aldermen want to see a new proposal for a green building that they say truly benefits the downtown economy. Developers say their plans would benefit area businesses while bringing in more residents.
