Their plans to use part of the temple's property would mean a significant change to the east side of our building and, more importantly, the addition of a 25-story building which would be in very close proximity to our temple.
Even though the proposal is still in the development phase, the Hare Krishna temple felt the need to reach out to our community to solicit their feedback on this idea. The development firm is offering a significant financial windfall to the temple to proceed with this plan.
There will be a special Community Meeting wherein all devotees are welcome to come and hear from a representative of the company putting this proposal together.
This project by this condo development company has very serious implications for our temple and has many benefits and drawbacks. We are humbly asking for your feedback regarding this important proposal and thus are extending an invitation to all of our devotees to come to this Community Meeting to learn more.
Even though information is not public, we have been granted permission from the development company to share one conceptual drawing about what the condominium would look like, once it is completed. Click the image below to see the full artists concept about how our temple would be situated in relation to the new condominium development.
For those of you who figured we are too spiritual to play tricks on you, we'd like to wish you a Happy April Fool's Day!!! There are no condominium developments which are being planned for our temple... we promise! (Check out previous years' Aprils Fools jokes here and here!)
