Attman goes to City Council with plan


Leonard Attman, the developer whose plan to buy part of Redwood Street to build a $90 million office tower was rejected in June by Baltimore's Planning Commission, is pushing the proposal again, this time at the City Council level.

The chairmen of two council subcommittees have set Nov. 7 and Nov. 12 as dates for public hearings on pending legislation that would enable Mr. Attman to close and acquire a portion of Redwood Street between Charles and Light streets to make way for a tower, called the Baltimore Financial Centre.

The City Council can pass legislation even if the planning commission recommends disapproval, but it rarely happens. The hearings will be held in the City Council chambers at City Hall, 100 N. Holliday St., Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. and Nov. 12 at 10 a.m.

Mr. Attman could not be reached to say why he is pressing for public hearings on the project.
