Fisher Island homeowners sue developer and community association tied to ferry landings. Reported The Real Deal.
Plans for a new luxury condominium tower and a new single-family home development on Fisher Island would eliminate a third ferry landing used for emergencies, according to a recently filed lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
The developer, led by Heinrich Von Hanau, plans to build a 57-unit, 10-story condominium at 6 Fisher Island Drive, and 12 single-family homes at 68 Fisher Island Drive. The projects, designed by Kobi Karp, are to be built on 14.7 acres of land currently used for one of Fisher Island’s three ferry landings, which are the primary way to enter and exit the island.
