The Port of Long Beach is soliciting comments on a Wrather Corp. plan that would add a 350-room hotel to the Queen Mary and Spruce Goose site by 1988 and dozens of specialty shops, four office buildings and a large exhibit hall within 15 years.
Port officials, who are working on an environmental impact report for the project, are asking for comments "so we can evaluate impact we may not have already considered," said planner Joe Chesler, project manager.
A hearing on a completed report will probably be held in June, with a final Harbor Commission vote in September, Chesler said.
The Wrather project, endorsed in concept by the Harbor Commission last March, probably would cost several hundred million dollars and build out the 55-acre site, company officials have said. Most of the new construction would be on what are now parking lots.
