UPDATE: The DRC took a relatively strong stand last night, refusing for the time being to grant the demolition request, and demanding that the developer figure out how to save the facade and re-open the sidewalk.
ORIGINAL 11/4: Jef gives us a heads-up that the project that’s left a 4-year-old cavity in the financial district, ever promising that shiny skyscraper at right, now seeks another victim:
Next Monday, November 9th, the Downcity Design Review Committee will be considering a request by 110 Providence Owner, LLC to demolition the remaining facade at 35 Weybosset Street. The facade was to be incorporated into the proposed OneTen Westminster Street residential tower (which when proposed, nearly 5 years ago, would have been the tallest building in Rhode Island).
And, yes, the expected outcome is another parking lot.
