Grove Isle Developer Fails to Respond to Residents… Again.

Grove Isle residents recently received an update from the island’s Board of Directors. 

 The key points of this update are as follows:

  • The Association is initiating legal proceedings against the developer who has failed to respond to residents’ questions regarding the loss of shared parking on the island.  Prior agreements between the owners of 1-2-3 Grove Isle (the Association) and 4 Grove Isle (hotel, club, spa, etc.) provide easements to the other’s properties, as defined in recorded documents.
  • The City of Miami has not approved or declined the developer’s request to demolish the Grove Isle Club.  The Association has voiced strong opposition to demolition in the absence of a building permit.
  • As an internal matter, completely separate from the issues with the Developer, the capital improvements assessment is undergoing a value engineering review.  A group of concerned residents have asked for (and sponsored) a peer review process of the capital improvements project(s) before the Board of Directors passes a resolution to proceed with these works.

A copy of the Board’s memo follows below (click image to open document).

Grove Isle: legal & parking update

And now bicycles…

The developer has now demanded that Building III’s bike room be emptied — and residents have been given seven days to vacate this space.

During Monday’s Board of Directors’ meeting, Tony Recio of Weiss Serota,  presented a much appreciated legal update regarding the developer’s various plans for the island.   Excerpts of this meeting, which include comments regarding the mediation process and parking saga, may be reviewed by clicking this [link] or the image below.

Grove Isle: New member-only valet parking policy

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday the developer sent out the March Grove Isle Club calendar.   On the back is a notice that complimentary valet parking is now being offered to all Club members.   This appears like a retreat on the developer’s previous position (see previous posts).

This last development shows at best poor planning and communication from the developer, or at worst an attempt to manipulate the feelings of as many people on the island as possible.

The simple fact is that Grove Isle could not have been built without enough parking spaces.   An agreed number of shared spaces (our research shows this to be 111 spots) was/is a city requirement.

We trust that the Grove Isle Board will continue to robustly deal with this dispute.

Miami Police were present with tow trucks on Grove Isle at 6am this morning

Extremely rapid action by our Board and lawyers halted the latest parking action by the 4 Grove Isle developer.  An emergency injunction was issued in our favor at 8.19pm on Sunday.  This court order was shown to the police at 6.00am this morning.  The police then ordered the developer’s tow trucks off the island.  The Board expects the matter to be addressed in court later this week.
