Developer pays the $475,000 fine for improper disposal, about $19,000 per condo.
Specifically, (District Attorney Jeannine) Pacioni said that inspectors with the Monterey Bay Air Resources District between November 2015 and September 2017 found that construction crews “had repeatedly disturbed asbestos-containing materials,” many of which had been identified in an asbestos survey of the building before the start of the renovation project.
While materials containing asbestos are supposed to be disposed of in containers intended for hazardous waste, workers at the Holman building threw the materials
away with regular construction waste, according to Pacioni, who said the developer and owner were cooperative throughout the investigation.
Is The Holman Building Cleared Of Asbestos?
To part time visitors. For millions of dollars. Tax the smack on them.
“We have been releasing them by floor,” Ruiz said. “Everything is sold except for the fourth floor and one unit on the third floor.”
Prices will set records for Pacific Grove condos, with fourth-floor units ranging from $2,049,000 for a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath unit to $2,495,000 for a three-bedroom, two and-a-half-bath condo. Ruiz said that 85 percent of the sales have been to people who want to use the condos as their second homes.
Great News! Holman Building Residences Sold Out
Give them 100% reclaimed toilet-to-tap water. Call it a substainable hotel.
Since its official approval last week, residents had 10 days to appeal the decision, which would then put the project into the hands of the P.G. City Council. Even if the council approved it, the project currently has no water credits. Those would have to come from the city’s Local Water Project.
“The council first has to decide what (water) will be allotted to commercial use and residential use from the reclamation site,” said Aeschliman. “Then it becomes first come first serve.”
Planning Commission Loves Durell Hotel
What? No Bowling Alley?
Currently, the building’s 3,000 square-foot lobby, which will include a weight room, media center, bar, stage and lounge for private uses and special community events is having all of its electrical work finalized, according to Daniel Crnkovic, superintendent of construction. Eventually, it’s set to include marble floors and a grand fireplace.
Gash has ties to the community through his great-great-grandparents who came to the Monterey Peninsula from Oklahoma to work in the canneries. He said that opening up the space for community use is the company’s way of saying “thank you” to both the city and local residents who have supported the project
Holman Condos: $1,400,000 And Up
Built in 1918 and serving as a downtown staple for more than 90 years, the building was purchased for $5.9 million by the real estate development company for the purpose of converting it into 21 high-end condominiums and four luxury penthouses and 18,000 square feet of retail space.
Current existing businesses Jeninni Kitchen + Wine Bar, Grove Nutrition Center and Monterey County Bank will remain on the ground floor with room for eight to 10 additional retail businesses.
Still hoping for the bowling lanes.
Holman Building Progress
Multi million dollar condos is the kind of town Pacific Grove is.
(Hahn) described 25 condominium units that will be located on the mezzanine, second, third and fourth floors and the rooftop as “very upscale” with 22 of them having ocean views and all priced according to the market and square footage. He expects them to be completed and up for sale by late 2017 or early 2018.the condominiums will range in price from $500,000 to upward of $2 million.
“As we build it, we want to honor the kind of town Pacific Grove is,” said Hahn, “and have it evolve in the right way.”
Holmans Getting Gutted
Never mind the minimum wage workers and those that prey on tourists that follow.
The Holman renovation will include four ocean-view penthouses, eight new stores, and 25 2,000-square-foot luxury condos.
The condos are expected to cost between $550 and $700 per square foot.
“We have never had condos built in this price range on the Monterey Peninsula with the exception of the Inn at Spanish Bay,” Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce President Moe Ammar said.
Ammar said he believes even though it’s a first for Pacific Grove, the development will be successful.
“We know it’s going to work because the demand is there,” Ammar said. “Everybody wants to live on the Central Coast. Everybody wants an ocean view. And ocean view development just doesn’t exist anymore.”
At the Tin Cannery, a 160-room hotel is being planned across the street from the aquarium.
Still in the early stages of the project, the development needs approval by the Coastal Commission. But first, the city’s voters will have to approve zoning changes that allow for a hotel.
The Chamber of Commerce predicts the hotel could bring in $30 million a year, or 25 percent of the city’s budget.
Moe Says More Tourists Will Solve Everything
Unlike sellers of fake antique clocks…
Pacific Grove police are on the lookout for two suspects in a theft at Holman Antiques on Lighthouse Avenue Friday.
A black man and black woman distracted the clerk while they took diamond earrings and two Rolex watches, police said.
The employees didn’t notice the items were stolen until they closed the shop.
Turn Of Events Holman’s Antiques Robbed
Nader’s Dream is back. This time the Holmans building becomes a bunch of multi million dollar condos and his big hotel takes up the rest of the block.
Developers are proposing two projects for the Holman Building property. The first project would turn the building into commercial space and condominiums. The second one would bring construction of Pacific Grove’s first hotel. To get it done, the developers need to split the lot and get multiple permits.
Developer Nader Agha is heading up the hotel project. The hotel, if all goes as planned, will be a 135-room Hilton Garden Inn. Agha wants to build it on the back two-thirds of the property.
Holmans Building Will Be Gutted
Would be cool, but no. Expensive condos for weekenders.
Chamber president, Moe Ammar calls the development partners “the dream team” who he believes can do great things with the property given their collective backgrounds and intent. “We want people to come out and give their input,” said Ammar.
If approved, the lot line adjustment would split the property into two parcels. Parcel 1 would be the 120,000-square-foot Holman building being purchased by the development company. The other would be a parcel consisting of the parking lot and Grand Central Station building behind the main parcel, which is currently owned by Nader Agha.
“It’s very simple to split the property, it’s my prerogative,” said Agha. As far as the process goes, Agha said he felt the city went about it the wrong way but now that they are at this point, “let’s see what they do.”
Agha was not ready to talk about his plans for the Grand Central Station property on Thursday. He has been the Holman block property owner since 1995 and has put it up for sale many times. The last was an online auction which was canceled.
