The Related Group’s planned Icon condominium, on the lot adjacent to the historic Stranahan House in downtown Fort Lauderdale, won another victory yesterday when a judge ruled in favor of the developers and against supporters of a proposed park next to the two-story cottage, which was built in 1901. The park’s supporters said the Icon, which is slated for the 500 block of East Las Olas Boulevard, does not meet city codes and should not have been approved by the city. The battle over the lot has been ongoing for 10 years, and this is the latest ruling in favor of Related and its partner in the project, Coolidge-South Markets Equities. The Stranahan group has the option to appeal the ruling.
