Edgewater. Double-U Tee Eff

December 1, 2009

As you may have read this morning, the Edgewater renovation project was rejected by the Council Landmarks Commission. Ald. Bridget Maniaci was the only member to vote in favor of the $93 million changes the Hammes Co. have proposed for the hotel.

The commission’s vote is not the final nail in the coffin. At least not technically. According to my discussions with council members in the summer, there are no cases in recent memory of the Council overriding Landmarks’ decision. A 14 vote majority (out of 20) would be necessary for such action.

Any predictions on the matter? Any insight? Come on Erik Paulson.
