From Bklyner: Has Brooklyn Paramount Theatre Renovation Been Permanently Delayed?

I have an article today in Bklyner, Has Brooklyn Paramount Theatre Renovation Been Permanently Delayed? Here's the start:
Nassau Coliseum, owned by the county and operated by Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov’s company Onexim, is closing indefinitely in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Onexim is seeking new investors to take over operations and pay off the building’s renovation debt, New York Post reported earlier this week.

The decision signals another retreat by Prokhorov, who once operated the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, from his one-time goal of becoming a venue magnate. It also raises questions about Prokhorov’s renovation of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Paramount Theatre in Downtown Brooklyn, which was announced in 2015 but has been delayed multiple times since.
