Court nixes Coconut Grove condo project

A May 7 ruling by a Miami-Dade Circuit Court appellate panel has nullified City Hall’s approval of a three-tower Coconut Grove condo tower planned by the Related Companies. The panel ruled that the project’s April 2007 approval violated zoning laws and was approved by discussions with Mayor Manny Diaz “away from the public earshot.” Plaintiffs alleged that it would block views from Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
