The Central Beach Alliance, the civic group that represents folks on the Fort Lauderdale Beach, got word early yesterday that the lawsuit against them by the developer of an approved condo would be dropped.
site of approved condo
The developer of the approved condo, the Grand Birch, ( 115 feet tall, 22 – units starting at over a million dollars), was suing the CBA for $7000 for interfering with their approval to build the condo by joining a lawsuit filed by neighbors of the approved building trying to halt the start of construction.
In the end, the developer needed more time to build the condo, and agreed to halt their lawsuit in hopes of an extension of time to build from the Fort Lauderdale City Commission.
The vote to grant the extension was approved by the Commission 4-1, Commissioner Trantalis voting no.
The lawsuit went away with the extension!
