The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) has delayed the public review of Suffolk University’s plans to build a dormitory on Beacon Hill.
Neighbors say that the building which Suffolk wants to tear down should be declared a landmark.
Neighbors say their opposition has nothing to do with college kids running through their neighborhood nor is it because their homes would end up in the shadows of the high-rise.
The building, as currently proposed, would rise 31-stories high, and house 800 students.
Truthfully, the delay will give Suffolk time to revise its plans for the building, as well as time to meet with residents and hopefully work out a compromise.
The landmarks commission will issue its decision within four to six weeks, after which the BRA will take up the proposal.
