Mike Harrah Claims He's Finally Found the Tenant That will Allow Him to Build 37-Story One Broadway Plaza
Anyhoo, Rick's scoop is this: Mike Harrah, the notorious SanTana developer who has for years wanted to build
Of course, that didn't sit well with Harrah, who magically added four stories to his as-yet-built tower earlier this year. Last year, Harrah also convinced the SanTana City Council to drop that threshold, which led to community activists filing a lawsuit; last week, a judge ruled that the issue must go back to the voters.

Harrah, of course, wouldn't disclose to Reiff--and if he wouldn't tell Rick, who's all for it, there's no way in hell he'd tell us, even if we did rent one of his buildings for a couple of years.
