Stamford Zoning Board approves demolition of iconic tower

The Zoning Board has approved plans to build a 16-story luxury apartment block on the site. No one from the public spoke during two hearings when the board discussed the multifaceted proposal before voting unanimously in favor of the new structure. Noel Cooke, who manages the towers for St. John, told zoning earlier this month that the $4.3 million would go toward renovations of the other two towers, which still contain some 240 affordable units.  Those renovations will likely cost around $70 million, or $35 million a tower, he said.
