Oakland Park rejects hotel proposal and approves townhouse project

The Oakland Park City Commission rejected a proposed hotel development and approved a townhouse construction project.

City commissioners voted 3-2 against a proposal to build a 124-room Residence Inn by Marriott.

Residents of the nearby Royal Palm Isles neighborhood opposed the hotel proposal.

The proposed hotel development site at 3701 Powerline Road, just east of Interstate 95, is vacant land where hotel construction requires approval from the city commission.

Commissioners did approve a proposal by restaurateur Alex Giampietro to build a cluster of eight townhouses in downtown Oakland Park.

Giampietro, owner of the Garlic Knot restaurant in Oakland Park, plans to build eight 2,200-square-foot townhouses priced  in the $400,000s.

The city commission last month approved new standards to freestanding housing developments in Oakland Park’s downtown district north of Oakland Park Boulevard between 13th Avenue and 10th Avenue.

The commissioners approved the new standards Oct. 18, when the city’s temporary moratorium on small multifamily housing developments in the downtown district expired.

But the new standards don’t apply to the townhouse project Giampietro is pursuing because he submitted his development plans before the city imposed the moratorium in May.

If the new standards had applied to him, Giampietro said he would have been forced  to build fewer than eight townhouses on his half-acre site at 1062 Northeast 35th Street. [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
