A neighboring homeowners association is suing the developer of the $200 million Atlantic Crossing project in Delray Beach.

The Harbour House Homeowners Association wants developer Edwards Cos. to create two roads they say were promised in the original site plan, Daily Business Review reported. The development was approved by Delray Beach commissioners in January. The association’s members live about 500 feet from the development site.

“We feel that something very serious has failed here in Delray Beach,” Harbour House president Bruce Leiner told the Review.

According to the lawsuit, Edwards Cos. reneged on a promise to construct two access roads to accommodate the 11,000 cars projected to use the streets each day. The association claims a 2009 city approval awarded the developer nearly an acre of public land as long as it built a new surface road from Federal Highway. [Daily Business Review]Eric Kalis
