Fight not over for Echo Harbor

In the wake of Council’s approval of the final amendments to the Downtown Master Plan, Richmond BizSense has put together a look at where things stand with Echo Harbor:

That gives the developers a little bit of leeway, but they are still about two stories over the recommendations in the downtown plan. But that isn’t stopping Echo Harbour developers from pushing forward, according to the attorney for the developers, Jim Theobald of Hirschler Fleischer. “I think some of the residents who are opposed to this case, some of them believe this is more than a guideline, but it’s not,” said Theobald. “It is not binding, it is essentially there as a planning tool. The city has the right to consider anything they want.” […] Theobald said he expects the proposal to go before council in the fall.
