News from last week (I was busy buying a 2nd condo!)...looks like this project is on track so far:

High-rise receives unanimous approval

COEUR d'ALENE - 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.

Neighbors opposed to the project say the building will obstruct their views of Lake Coeur d'Alene, one of the reasons they say they purchased their properties.

Last month, Greg Hills, principal of the Colorado-based real estate development firm, Austin Lawrence Partners, said the company is prepared to handle a court case if one arises.

The commission's decision can be appealed to the city council, but the council, like design review, can only judge whether the proposal fits the city's building guidelines.

Following the meeting, Damiano said the neighbors plan to take the matter to court.
