For the past 10 years, Grove Isle Condominium Association in Florida has been entangled in lawsuits regarding a proposed development project on the island. Several residents were said to have been disgruntled about the plan, saying it would destroy their beautiful views of the water and would also cause them to lose their club house. News of a settlement was recently announced, and the developers are finally ready to get their project underway.
65 New units are part of the plan
Construction is set to begin in 2022. Plans include 65 new dwelling units, as well as a new club, eight tennis courts and a restaurant. There are already 18-story buildings on the island, each with approximately 165 units. The price range of an island condo in Grove Isle is between $650,000 and $1.3 million.
An appeal is still pending
While construction plans are moving forward, developers are still facing a pending appeal where a number of residents have stated that the building permits in question are not valid because the property was not re-platted. The new project is also contingent upon completion of bridge repairs and inspection. There is reportedly concern over whether the bridge can withstand the weight of massive commercial trucks used in construction.
Support is available for anyone facing similar condominium problems
It is not uncommon for legal complications to arise between condominium dwellers, homeowners’ associations and developers. Whether issues include violations of rules or covenants, or disputes over proposed construction on a property, it is helpful to seek additional support rather than trying to resolve a complex issue alone. An experienced property law attorney stays updated on codes and regulations and can recommend the best course of action in a particular set of circumstances.
