I think there is a simple solution to the Hope Point Tower dilemma — we provide developer Jason Fane with a road map of New England and then have Gov. Gina Raimondo and House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello escort him on Route 146 north to Worcester. He will probably be welcome to build his Hope Point Tower there, next to the new stadium that Worcester is building for our own PawSox.

I don't understand how the politicians of Providence refuse to do everything they can to encourage this project. All the projected news is good — 1,500 construction jobs, $70 million in property taxes over the next 20 years, $250 million in property taxes to Providence over 40 years, plus high-end living for some 800 people who would pay taxes and pump new life into the community.

I have read many articles that have said that Providence is the renaissance city. By definition, renaissance means "new birth" or "any revival or period of marked improvement and new life." The last time a skyscraper was built in Providence was in the mid-1970s. Hope Point Tower would mark Providence's entry into a new level of economic success and development.

I hope we are not forced to line up on 146 North and wave good bye to Mr. Fane as he is escorted out of our state to Worcester with our Hope Point Tower.
