The Hallandale Beach City Commission on Wednesday will consider the proposed development MG 100 Tower, which plans to bring a mixed-use project with high-rise apartments and commercial space to 100 South Federal Highway.

The developer is MG 100 Federal, LLC, whose director is Enrique Manhard, a Uruguayan investor.

Manhard is seeking approval to construct a mixed-use tower that would have 294 high-rise residential units and 9,603 square feet of commercial space. Permission to build the project as such rests on, among other things, the ability to use vested rights to seek approval under zoning rules that existed before Nov. 2014, when Hallandale Beach set up a regional activity center that includes the property.

Although the deadline to be vested was recently extended to Feb. 18, 2017, Manhard is now asking for an additional 12 months to allow the developer to work out an agreement that would be satisfactory to the city and the developer, according to documents filed with the city.

Last June, after the Hallandale Beach Planning and Zoning Board reviewed the plan for MG 100 Tower, it recommended against approving the zoning that the project would need to do the 350 units that were a part of the developer’s original plan, and against the conditional use that would allow residential on the site that had been zoned for business under the old code. But the planning and zoning advisory board recommended approval of the development with conditions: a maximum height of 25 stories (the developer had wanted to build 35 stories) and a parking ratio that conforms to the current city code.
