Suit Filed To Stop Downtown High-Rise

A group of downtown condo residents who live next door to a proposed 14-story high-rise building filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the city and developer to prevent the $20 million project from happening. The suit, filed by a group of Coeur d’Alene North Condominium residents called Coeur d’Alene North Home Owners View Preservation, states the proposed project would harm existing residents’ property rights and that the city didn’t protect their rights when they appealed to the governing body.  “The comprehensive plan for defendant city of Coeur d’Alene asserts to protect and preserve private property rights in the development and implementation of land-use policies and regulations,” the complaint states. It was filed by attorney James Crowe, who also lives in the North Condos, and attorney Scott Reed. The two have said for months they would be prepared to litigate should the project applicant, One Lakeside, be allowed to build a high-rise downtown/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Who do you want to see prevail in this lawsuit?
