Related, Crescent condo tower could need voter approval

Miami Beach voters may get to decide whether the Related Group and Crescent Heights can develop the city’s tallest building.

City Attorney Jose Smith recently released a written opinion suggesting the proposed 50-story condo project next to the Alton Road flyover at the end of the MacArthur Causeway could require a transfer of development rights to a site across a public street, according to the Miami Herald. Such transfers must be approved in a voter referendum. Smith wrote that the land can’t be deemed a single site because at least one public street separates one of the parcels from the other two.

If considered a single site, Related and Crescent would have a much easier time getting the tower approved. They could take the entire development rights from all three properties and use them anywhere on the site.

Crescent managing principal Russell Galbut told the Herald the development is in the infant stages. He said it is too early to predict how Smith’s opinion would impact project plans. [Miami Herald]Eric Kalis
