Revised plans for the Children’s Memorial Hospital redevelopment call for fewer residential units and shorter buildings.

The new proposal includes 702 residential units, down from 996 units proposed in 2012. Developer McCaffery Interests Inc. also cut the height of the tallest building from 27 stories to 19, reported Thursday.

A neighborhood meeting is scheduled for Jan. 14.
