LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) --  The future of a controversial 17 story high rise in the Highlands Remains in limbo.

A Metro Council Committee voted to send the Willow Grande proposal back to Planning and Zoning, to come up with a plan that everyone can agree on.

For months, residents around the Cherokee Triangle area have voiced their concerns over a proposed 17 story condo, called Willow Grande. Neighbors say it's just too large and doesn't fit the style of the historic area

"The plan is just way too big for the development that we have here, the historic nature of the Highlands," a resident, said.

On Tuesday, the Metro Council Committee on Planning and Zoning voted to send the plan back to planning and zoning and get both sides to come to the table and come up with a better development plan. A decision that tosses the plan back to Planning and Zoning and further leaves residents in limbo.

The committee tabled the decision earlier this month because it wanted more time to decide. Now, it's back to the drawing board. The attorney for the developer left the chambers without commenting.
