The developer of the Hard Rock Hotel is asking for a delay on the demolition of buildings next to the partially-collapsed hotel.
Attorneys for 1031 Canal Street Development on Wednesday sent a request to the CBD Historic District Landmarks Commission to put a hold on any removal of structures adjacent to the site.
Developers told the commission that the current situation at the location needs more research and study before a finalized plan can be placed into action.
The commission unanimously approved the delay, which will now be heard at the next Central Business District meeting in early February.
