RALEIGH -- A Raleigh developer has revised its proposal for a tower project in the city's downtown warehouse district, banning bars and limiting the number of stories for two buildings.

The News & Observer reports that Kane Realty submitted its new plans for a $150 million mixed-use project Thursday after having faced complaints from some residents and Councilwoman Kay Crowder at a July hearing.

Aiming to address late-night noise concerns, the plans prohibit bars and nightclubs as tenants. The plans also cap the heights at 17 stories for the tower and nine stories for the smaller residential building.

Kane Realty CEO John Kane says the project could still feature restaurants that have bars and stay open late.

City council is scheduled to review the proposal Sept. 1.
