Even as the future of the Community Redevelopment Agency hangs in the balance, the agency is set to vote this Thursday on up to $17.5 million in aid for developer J.H. Snyder's two-tower apartment project designed by local architecture firm Jerde. Located above the Purple and Red Lines, the project-- a 25-story tower and a 30-story tower with 464 one- and two-bedroom apartments--was announced earlier this year. Previously, a mall--people were pretty excited about that one--was planned on this site. The CRA agenda for Thursday is on the city's web site.
