RDA vets potential buyers

The Granada Theater on Monterey Road in downtown Morgan Hill could be demolished to make room for a mixed-use project.

City officials will soon determine who gets to purchase four downtown Morgan Hill properties, based on how qualified a list of potential buyers are to develop projects that support their vision of a community with a variety of living, shopping and entertainment options.

A committee of Morgan Hill Redevelopment Agency staff and citizens have been in the process of reviewing 15 responses to a request for qualifications to develop the four properties, which was posted last year. They will recommend a buyer or buyers for the properties to the city council, serving as the RDA board at an April 1 special meeting, according to David Heindel, assistant to the city manager for downtown revitalization.

    Although the Granada’s only “appearance” on Conclave 2008 was via remarks made by me as the “bonus day” bus passed within a mile of it on Highway 101 en route to Hearst Castle, it is significant enough. The interior is a charming gabled structure with exposed varnished laminated wood beams, a band of Skouras-like scrolls running down the ceiling’s center, and murals on the sidewalls of flamingos, herons, ibis, magnolia trees, and cattails, done in tans and greys on a maroon background.
