Without yet knowing the specifics of City Attorney Mike Aguirre’s proposal for the city to take down the Sunroad building itself, Mayor Jerry Sanders is supportive of any “aggressive posture” that would result in lowering the controversial office tower, a spokesman said today.

Sanders spokesman Fred Sainz said the mayor, who is traveling to Washington D.C. today to meet with the Department of Transportation, will not make a decision on the proposal until he reviews it. But Sanders endorses the concept of the proposal, Sainz said.

“The mayor would be highly supportive of continuing the pressure on Sunroad and any kind of abatement order that would remove this kind of public nuisance,” Sainz said.

Sunroad spokeswoman Karen Hutchens declined to immediately comment, saying the company is weighing its options.
