    “It’s a wonderful place. It’s exceeded my expectation immensely,” Holdings Acquisition Co. CEO Greg Carlin said during a media tour Tuesday.

    A massive 74-foot translucent chandelier hangs from the atrium, ending above a bar. Its dozens of Plexiglas-type strips can be illuminated with colored lights to create a light show, said president Ed Fasulo.
