In August, Dan Kent of the Galvan Foundation informed the Common Council in a letter that Galvan was "withdrawing from proceeding further with the 75 North 7th Street Project."
That was on a Tuesday. The next day, Charles Gottlieb, the land use attorney who is part of the Galvan team for the project, was before the Zoning Board of Appeals to appeal an interpretation of the city's zoning code made by code enforcement officer Craig Haigh.
Nothing much has happened regarding the project in the ensuing months, but at the ZBA meeting this past Wednesday, it was announced by ZBA chair Lisa Kenneally that Haigh had withdrawn his objection to the project after consulting with assistant city attorney Jeff Baker, and as a consequence the appeal had been withdrawn.
What's next for the project is not known.
