Holy Cross Redevelopment Plans on Hold After Court Ruling

It's looking like a wait-and-see sitch concerning the controversial Holy Cross redevelopment plans, which got the go-ahead from City Council back in May. The Times-Pic reports that there was a "bureaucratic foul-up in City Hall" that led to a judge ruling that the zoning change was improperly filed, thus nixing it. In case you missed it, the zoning change gave the go-ahead for the construction of two 60-foot riverfront residences with 123 units, and the transformation of the old Holy Cross administrative building into a mixed use space. There's no official word (yet) on what happens next, but an attorney for the discontented Holy Cross neighbors who are fighting the development did say he believes that Perez Architects (the developers of the site) have to start the process from the very beginning, which judging from the last go-round in city planning meetings, could be a long, long road.
