Demolition plans are a go for 240 W. Broughton Street after the Zoning Board of Appeals voted to overturn a decision by the Historic District Board of Review denying that request. The petitioner, HunterMaclean partner Harold Yellin representing Ben Carter Enterprises, said the historic board had abused its discretion during the May 14 hearing by designating the property historic. The zoning board’s action means the Metropolitan Planning Commission will now issue a COA, certificate of appropriateness, allowing demolition.
Attorney Harold Yellin helped mega-hotel developer Richard C. Kessler get City Council approval for Kessler’s newest building project in Savannah. The process included an amendment to an existing height restriction ordinance that limits the height of new structures in Savannah’s Historic District.
