The developers of the partially collapsed Hard Rock Hotel are filing permits to take down three adjacent buildings as part of their demolition plan.
According to officials, the proposal involves tearing down two buildings on Canal Street and one on Iberville Street.
Historic preservationists and at least one City Council member are worried the demolition of the three buildings near the partially collapsed Hard Rock Hotel may not be necessary but building officials assure that it is.
A spokesperson for the mayor's office said the developers have not yet turned in a complete demolition plan explaining how getting rid of the adjacent buildings would be part of the hotel demolition.
