Text from http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/nov/07/developer-shelves-lodo-34-story-condo-tower/

- Plans for a 34-story, $300 million condo tower were shot down by a city design review board because of ts "massive" presence.

- The developer must revise the plans for the Bell Tower.

- Developer in opposite could revert to "option two," which basically calls for taking the tower and shrinking it to 8-stories and spreading the square footage across the entire site. It could eliminate the previous plan to create a park along Cherry Creek.

- The new building primarily could be an office building, possibly with some penthouse-style condo units, as opposed to the most expensive condo tower ever planned in Denver. The proposed office building across the creek from the tower was given positive feedback by the board, if it does increase its size.

- For a while this project was cancelled, but now it is proposed again. The Denver Landmark Preservation Commission upheld the Lower Downtown Design Review Board's approval of Buzz Geller's proposed "Bell Tower" project at Speer and Market. In February 2009, a LoDo resident had filed an appeal to the LPC to overturn the LDDRB's approval of the Bell Tower's preliminary design.
