The owners of the glitzy Grand Prospect Hall, on the far southern end of the Slope, have applied for zoning approval to construct an 11-story, 150-room hotel on the site of the next door parking lot, according to the Post.
Michael and Alice Halkias, who purchased the run-down building and fixed it up about 25 years ago, have apparently been frustrated by the success of the nearby Brooklyn Marriott, and feel that they can do a better job.
They'll be pleading their case at the CB7 meeting tomorrow night; they'll need approval because of the 2005 rezoning that prohibits buildings from growing to over six stories. If given the go-ahead, they'll also be building a much-needed 400-spot parking garage.
