The proposed development

A 4-1 vote last month by the City of Miami means the remake of the
southern end of Watson Island by the Flagstone Island Gardens group is
still alive. It was nine years ago that developer Mehment Bayraktar got
approval from voters to build a village on the island. Watson Island is a
man-made split of land that connects Miami Beach to downtown Miami, and
has long been described as a waterfront jewel. But the southern end has
remained empty for years. [Miami
