Following a push last year to heed the Rebbe’s words and expand 770, plans were drawn up and published of what a future expansion would look like which includes the original Shul and downstairs Shul, the 788 office building, the Kolel Building on Union, and two more houses • Full Story
Over 30 years have passed since the Rebbe spoke about expanding 770 and placed the famous Even Hapina into the building which was then expanded on a small scale.
Around a year ago, there was a large awakening among Chassidim regarding fulfilling the Rebbe’s request that 770 should be expanded on a larger scale. This plan was endorsed by Mashpiim and a petition was launched and signed by thousands.
Yesterday, the next step in the process took place: Plans were drawn up and published of what a future expansion would look like which includes the original Shul and downstairs Shul, the 788 office building, the Kolel Building on Union, and two more houses.
From the plans, it can be seen that the iconic fron of 770 will be kept and will be the center of the enormous complex to preserve the famous image of Beis Rabeinu.
As of now, this plan has not been approved by those that are responsible to make it happen and is merely just a rendering in the event that it will be approved.
ChabadInfo.com has been informed that the obstacle blocking this from happening is not money, but rather the unfortunate ongoing court case that has been taking place for years regarding the ownership of 770.
