Construction of Long Beach towers to move forward after judge’s ruling

Nassau Supreme Court Justice Jack Libert reinstated the permit for Manhattan-based developer Sinclair Haberman to build three remaining buildings in the Seapointe Towers complex in Long Beach, Newsday reported. Three of the Seapointe Towers had already been built when the Long Beach Board of Zoning Appeals revoked the permit in 2003 over neighbors’ complaints and parking variances. In response, Haberman filed a lawsuit against the city seeking $50 million in damages, sparking a years-long legal battle. The town was found at fault for failing to respond to the suit in 2015. Libert’s decision awards no damages, but reinstates the building permit until the work is complete. [Newsday]
