A developer proposing to build Rhode Island's tallest building is downsizing his plans from three skyscrapers to just one.
The Providence Journal reports that New York City developer Jason Fane has scaled back his proposal to one 43-story luxury apartment building in Providence.
The Fane Organization had unveiled a larger 3-tower complex last month to a commission that is overseeing the redevelopment of land made available when the state moved Interstate 195. The tallest building would have been 55 stories. Some critics called it out of scale for the former jewelry district it would rise from.
A Fane spokesman says he wants to move immediately on the 43-story tower but could still build the other two later if there's market demand. He's urging support from city and state leaders.
