GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - The way is clear for developers to complete plans for a new 3,000-seat Balinese Room concert venue on the Galveston beachfront after the city’s governing council approved a zoning change.

The change approved by the City Council a week ago will allow the proposed concert venue and restaurant to be built to a height of about 70 feet. Architect Michael Gaertner said the height was needed to accommodate the kind of equipment needed to produce the concerts.

Gaertner says the attraction at the site of the original Balinese Room, which Hurricane Ike demolished in 2008, would include four to five restaurants. Owner Scott Arnold said the design would reflect the character of the original and would book top musical performers.
