A loan review committee of the East Baton Rouge Redevelopment Authority granted a favorable score Tuesday to Danny McGlynn’s planned renovation of the Darensbourg building and the northern side of the Government Street block just west of it.

McGlynn is requesting $700,000 in gap financing for the project from the RDA, whose full board will consider the request at its June 11 meeting.

RDA Vice President Mark Goodson said the committee’s approval is contingent on the project getting a parking waiver from the city-parish.
