Developer moves to change Grove Isle zoning
This would be asking the City to change the zoning to high density residential which must be done since the plans are not in keeping with Miami 21. The rezoning portion is limited to the current footprint occupied by the hotel, restaurant and spa, which is three-acres. The remaining four acres, which includes the current tennis court and adjacent areas are not included in the rezoning request.
The developer has new drawings for the 12-story project being prepared at present. The new request for rezoning is a process which includes public hearings which I am sure will be well attended by the Grove Isle neighbors who are against any changes being done on the island.
The previous plan was overbearing and deemed harmful to the environment.
All of this begs the question: Is this spot zoning? That's what killed the 200 Bay Residences/Mercy plan years ago.
