Photo by Stan Zimmerman The site plan was submitted July 16 for review by the city's Development Review Committee to ensure it complies with all appropriate city building and zoning codes. By the time the ribbon is cut on the project, the total cost — including work on the "invis- ible" design — could exceed $28 million. City staff and the City Commission hope some of that can be recovered from the city's lawsuit against AECOM. Depending on final cost estimates, the building could feature solar power panels on the flat roof, and it could be faced in brick or stucco. The original Hover Arcade was demolished in 1967 to make way for the rerouting of U.S. 41 along the bayfront. % Sarasota News Leader July 18, 2014 Page 41
