CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A panel in Cedar Rapids is recommending the City Council approve a proposed 28-story high-rise that would become the tallest building in the community.

KCRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TTaBIr ) the panel of city leaders and experts favored the proposal from One Park Place over two other buildings proposed for a downtown vacant lot.

The One Park Place plan includes a first-floor grocery store with condos, a hotel and spa above. The building would also feature a rooftop restaurant.

It would replace the Alliant Tower as the city’s tallest building.

Mayor Ron Corbett has suggested finding a place in the city for the two other proposals, which were 11-story and 14-story buildings with a mix of retail and living spaces.

The council is expected to vote on the matter May 24.
