Lawsuit filed to stop massive Rybovich project

The massive development proposed at the Rybovich marina is the latest to face a legal challenge from nearby residents.

A Palm Beach Circuit Court lawsuit was filed by a Northwood couple and two neighbors last week. The group asked a judge to issue an injunction to prevent a joint venture between Huizenga Holdings and the Related Group from starting construction. It claims city commissioners failed to comply with their comprehensive plan and zoning code when approving the development on April 29.

Rybovich vice president Carlos Vidueira told the Palm Beach Post the company is “confident” the Northwood group’s lawsuit would not halt the 1,000-residence project.

The marina’s ownership “is disappointed that the residents and businesses of the North End of West Palm Beach must face yet another obstacle in our quest for a collective prosperity and improved quality of life,” Vidueira said via e-mail.

Residential and community groups are also legally challenging a planned Marriott hotel next to the Waterview Towers condo and a planned condo project at the Chapel-by-the-Lake site. [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
