Huizenga Holdings and the Related Group want to get directly involved in a Palm Beach Circuit Court lawsuit challenging West Palm Beach’s approval of their planned Rybovich development.

Attorneys for the companies filed a motion in the case asking to intervene. Huizenga and Related cited “the direct and immediate impact the decision in this case will have upon the property owners” in Monday’s motion. Huizenga owns the Rybovich yacht center and is partnering with Related on the 14-acre project, which was approved by the city in April.

The move by Huizenga and Related is similar to one made by the developers of a proposed condo building at the Chapel-by-the-Lake. G.A.K. Partners were able to get partial standing in legal challenges initiated by Citizens for Thoughtful Growth. Those lawsuits were filed after the city approved the project in January.

Lee Skinner, the lead plaintiff in the Rybovich case, told the Palm Beach Post the developers should not get a chance to be directly involved in the lawsuit. Skinner said the complaint is about the city allegedly violating its own rules when approving the massive development.

“There’s too many developments coming down the pike that are on steroids,” Skinner said. [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
