The husband-and-wife team who want to build an 11-story hotel and parking garage adjacent to their Grand Prospect Hall in South Slope have already sparked a neighborhood controversy with their plans, and now the chair of Community Board 7’s land use and landmarks committee is calling on them to appear at another public meeting to address the community’s concerns. In a letter obtained by Brownstoner, CB 7’s John Burns told Grand Prospect owner Michael Halkias that his descriptions thus far of the height and depth of the project have been “vague” and that “some very basic question [sic] could not be answered.” In the letter, below, he asks Halkias to conduct an environmental impact study for the site, on Prospect Avenue between 5th and 6th avenues, and to release more detailed figures about the project’s scale and construction.
