Lander Questions Grand Prospect Hall Project


    We haven’t heard much about the ongoing saga at Grand Prospect Hall lately, where owner Michael Halkias wants a spot rezoning to build a controversial hotel/parking garage next to his venue, but a recent letter from Councilman Brad Lander makes it clear that Halkias’ plan isn’t dead and the community still has questions about it. In the letter, Lander says an environmental review will be necessary for the project in order to answer questions such as how it would affect traffic patterns how exhaust would be extracted from the garage; it also asks how high the structure is supposed to be, what the construction timetable would be like, and whether Halkias will commit to using a “responsible contractor.”
