Meeting tonight on demolition proposal for 400 block of Canal

TONIGHT! 5:30 tonight at Jax Brewery in the Riverview Room. A public meeting on the proposal by Mike Motwani to demolish historic buildings in the 400 block of Canal and build a tower *far* in excess of the 70′ height limit. This is a matter of concern not just for our neighbors across Canal, but for the Quarter as well. There are now ***three*** high-rises under construction or on the table for Canal Street, which would dramatically affect the historic character of our neighborhoods as well as set precedents for other out-of-scale developments. Please plan to attend!
