BrickTop’s faces parking code violation

Palm Beach council is requiring the restaurant to lease additional spaces

A popular Palm Beach restaurant, BrickTop’s, and its landlord have landed in hot water with the town’s code enforcement after trying to avoid a parking requirement.

Town codes require the restaurant, located at 375 South County Road, to provide 22 off-street parking spaces at the Apollo parking lot on Peruvian Avenue. But since it open in January, the restaurant hasn’t complied.

BrickTop’s attorney, Maura Ziska, told the Town Council that the restaurant never leased the spaces because it doesn’t need them. She has requested a zoning variance that would have eliminated the requirement, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

“If you make them rent the 22 spaces, they’re going to sit empty,” Ziska said.

However, the council is insisting that BrickTop’s honor the agreement and lease the 22 spaces at the Apollo lot at a cost of roughly $25,000 to $30,000 a year. [Palm Beach Daily News] – Christopher Cameron
