Newport to destroy historic buildings to build luxury lofts

Another day, another rubber stamp for developers and the 1%.

Three historic buildings on a Newport corner are likely to face the wrecking ball - to be replaced by a project featuring 8 luxury lofts.

The lofts will be approved even though the design of the new lofts has faced widespread criticism for the building's bleak appearance. But it's unknown whether anyone currently lives in the old buildings - or if the city is doing anything to help them, which they never do.
