Design Panel OKs CdA High Rise

The architectural design for a proposed 14-story residential building in downtown Coeur d'Alene got the green light Thursday from the city's Design Review Commission. The commission's seven members unanimously approved the plan for the building, stating it meets all city guidelines and procedures. Prior to the commissioners' decision, they received a preview of the legal battle neighbors of the project have been promising to mount. Harold Damiano, a 24-year resident of the Coeur d'Alene North condos to the north, testified that the commissioners have a duty to protect property rights and values. He pointed out that this duty is listed first in the city's code detailing the Design Review Commission's authority/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you want to see more high-rises in downtown Coeur d'Alene?
