Small business continues battle with Brickell City Centre

A small business is squaring up again against its behemoth neighbor: Brickell City Centre.

Frame Art Inc. claims that construction at Brickell City Centre is showering its property with debris. This is the fourth emergency action against Brickell City Centre developer Swire Properties.

Last year, a trial judge refused to grant relief to Frame Art, a custom frame shop, and denied subsequent requests for an emergency injunction, according to the Daily Business Review.

“Chunks of concrete large enough to kill a man have fallen on Frame Art’s property,” read an injunction request filed in January as a follow-up to the lawsuit. Another injunction from March claimed a 10-pound metal plate fell from the construction site, causing damage to the Frame Art roof.

In response, the developer noted that netting and a barrier wall protection system made it impossible for anything but small pieces of debris to fall from the construction site.

They also questioned just how sincere Frame Art’s principals really were about their fear of falling debris, producing a photograph of someone relaxing at a picnic table on Frame Art’s roof. [Daily Business Review]Christopher Cameron
