Join the fight!! SaabReplay's building could be demolished so developers can install a ground level parking lot! This is to meet city parking requirements for a Kaiser medical facility project a block away. Our landlord is the developer! We are encouraging our local customers and Saab enthusiasts to show up for this hearing AND or write to Berkeley's mayor expressing your feelings about this. SaabReplay will have to relocate, this means being exposed to stupid high current lease rates and loose our iconic location. As well as break up our Saab community here in Berkeley. I believe the parking requirements are imposed by Berkeley on the project. As a solution, developers proposed to demolish our property to accommodate the parking requirements. However, it has been denied, but developers appealed. So this upcoming hearing is important to stopping the demo. We don't have a problem with the medical facility, but Berkeley should drop the parking requirement. Aside from SaabReplay, other businesses and jobs are effected and more warehouses lost. Artists, craftworkers and blue collar are being pushed out Into unaffordable locations, jeopardizing survival. Support however you can, in person, with your knowledge, emails etc.. we will be posting more on this.... Thank you to all of our customers, followers and supporters. Hearing can go late, it can also be viewed live from city of Berkeley website.
