West Palm Beach developer asks commissioners for delay

The developers of the proposed Palm Harbor Marina hotel in West Palm Beach want city commissioners to delay voting on the project until June 9.

Attorney Samuel Poole, who represents the developers of the Marriott-branded hotel, did not provide a reason for seeking a two-week postponement in his letter to the city. Commissioners did warn the project team last month that they had plenty of questions about the development before a final vote could be cast. The 75-foot, 108-room project passed an initial round of voting on April 28.

City spokesperson Elliot Cohen told the Palm Beach Post the developers are trying to resolve issues with residents of the adjacent Waterview Towers. Many of the residents are against the hotel design.

The owner of the marina claims that two-thirds of the Waterview unit owners must approve any project higher than 75 feet on the Palm Harbor site. That is based on a 99-year lease the city granted the owner for the marina and hotel property in 1979. [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
