Theater Square Sues Both Hearst Newspapers LLC and Block 58 Investors LLC

Theater Square sued both the Chronicle's parent company, Hearst Newspapers LLC - and its new owner, Block 58 Investors LLC. The plaintiff, Theater Square LP, claims the demolition will interfere with its agreement to construct a pedestrian tunnel under the building. The Chronicle building is on Block 58, and Theater Square owns Block 43, which is just north of the building and separated by Prairie Street. According to the lawsuit, access to the tunnels is an essential component of Theater Square's plans for developing Block 43. In 2007, Theater Square and Hearst entered into an agreement in which the latter granted the former "perpetual easements for the purpose of access and passage through" the existing passageways that connect Block 58 with the Chase Tower and with 717 Texas, as well as the existing passageway in the basement of the Chronicle building. The lawsuit alleges that both Hearst and Hines breached their obligations under the Prairie Tunnel Agreement, "including but not limited to denying TSLP access to its easement rights and failing to assist TSLP in obtaining necessary permits and vault rights." Now that Hines appears to be preparing to demolish the building, Theater Square filed the lawsuit to prevent further interference with its efforts related to the tunnel construction and to prevent activities that would demolish or damage the basement areas of the Chronicle building. Theater Square is seeking a temporary restraining order, a temporary injunction, a permanent injunction and a declaratory judgment against Hines, as well as actual damages and attorney's fees against Hearst and Hines.
