it sounds like a vote on the proposed time extension will happen tonight. if the 3 year extension is not granted by the city council, then i don't see evanston ever granting a future approval for any building that would rise significantly above the city's current skyline height. tonight's vote could literally be a now or never moment for a building to ever really poke above the current 275' height of evanston.

Evanston aldermen are scheduled to vote tonight on giving developers of the proposed 35-story condo tower on the Fountain Square block an extra three years to start construction.

The planned development at 708 Church St. was initially approved in March 2009 on a 6-3 vote -- the minimum required for the project, which needed a super-majority, two-thirds vote by aldermen.

Since then the composition of the council has changed dramatically.
