The sponsor of the Tobey & Leon Cooperman Sinai Residences in Boca Raton is planning a major expansion of the two-year-old senior housing complex.

About 100 independent-living residences, at least two dining venues and a ballroom would comprise the expansion, estimated to cost more than $125 million.

The sponsor of Sinai Residences, the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, also plans to upgrade the existing common areas at the residential complex, located at 21036 95th Avenue South in Boca Raton.

The federation selected Des Moines, Iowa-based LCS Development, to develop and market the expansion of Sinai Residences.

Opened in 2016 at a cost of $265 million, the residential complex has 234 independent-living units, 48 assisted living units, 24 memory care units and 60 beds for residents who require skilled-nursing care.

Litigation recently has erupted over the cost of remediating mold infestation at Sinai Residences.

Boston-based Suffolk Construction filed a lawsuit alleging that a subsidiary of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County failed to pay for fixing the mold problem.

Suffolk claims that errors and omissions in the design of Sinai Residences caused the mold infestation in the independent-living wing of the property. Suffolk’s lawsuit claims $3.4 million for unpaid repairs.

Separately, a subcontractor that worked on the construction of Sinai Residences, H&J Contracting, has sued Suffolk for $2.4 million of allegedly unpaid work. – Mike Seemuth
