West Palm Beach commissioners are expected to finally vote on a long-delayed proposal for a hotel next to the Palm Harbor Marina.

The developers, who have asked the City Commission to delay a second reading of their proposed 75-foot, 108-room boutique hotel four times, have indicated they are ready to present their project during Tuesday’s commission meeting, the Palm Beach Post reported. The delays gave the developers time to address concerns from residents of the nearby Waterview Towers, who oppose the hotel as designed. However, the city’s senior urban design planner says the plan has not changed.

The family that owns the marina contends its lease agreement grants the residents of the Waterview Towers the ability to approve or deny structures above 75 feet with a two-thirds vote.

Earlier this year, a legal challenge was filed claiming the hotel violates agreements with the city and Waterview residents. [Palm Beach Post]Frank Maradiaga
