  • How is this tower a good idea? Plenty of other ways to get money spent on that site/and in Providence.
    Comments suggesting politics reason for Elorza’s opposition to tower; from my perspective, argument goes other way: politics reason for CC override . Please explain!

  • Eliot. The Fane Tower shows that the state’s incentive packages are out of whack. An open lot between the train station and Kennedy Plaza makes more sense for a building of this size and stature. However, the state threw a ton of I-195 site money at Fane. The tower’s placement is based on free state money.
