Tension is growing between the town of Jupiter and a $150 million waterfront entertainment complex, Harbourside Place.
Harbourside Place LLC, the company tied to Nick Mastroianni’s development, just appealed U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra’s order denying its bid for a preliminary injunction against the town, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The dispute dates back about three years when the town of Jupiter complained the music emitted from Harbourside Place was too loud. It later suspended up to $350,000 in annual payments it agreed to make to the entertainment center for 15 years.
Town attorney Tom Baird told the publication that because the court determined that Harbourside had not met conditions of its approval to host outdoor events he doesn’t believe the development will have much success in court.
In previous reports Mastroianni said he has invested about $35,000 to try to muffle the sound.
Harbourside Place was completed in 2014 and celebrated in a grand opening party that included fireworks and music.
The appeal now goes to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. [Palm Beach Post] — Amanda Rabines
