The Coconut Grove Grapevine reports that the State Representative for the Grove has sent an email to the DEP about the Playhouse and its reverter clause:
"It is my understanding that the current use of the property may violate the restriction and cannot be cured within the time provided in the deed. Therefore, I respectfully request that the Department of Environmental Protection investigate this matter in order to determine all available options, including the possibility of the property reverting back to the state as well as who may take possession of the property once it is under the control of the state."My question: what, exactly, do they intend to do with the building once they get it? The building is condemned, and either they'll spend years trying to renovate an inadequate facility, or years trying to build a usable space. Will they honor the agreement made with Joe Adler and GableStage, or is there some behind-the-scenes hijinks going on?
