Island Gardens survives Miami’s attempt to evict

A Miami-Dade County circuit court judge ruled on Friday that development on the upland area of Island Gardens on Watson Island in Miami can continue, according to news reports

Judge William Thomas rejected an attempt by Miami city commissioners to declare the developer, Flagstone Island Gardens, in default of its ground lease, which would have opened the way for them to evict Flagstone, according to a story in the South Florida Business Journal.

The marina section of the development, home to the large yacht section of the Miami Yacht Show, was completed in 2016. Plans for the land portion include parking, hotels, condominiums, retail shops and restaurants.

The judge said the city breached the lease by refusing to approve routine building permits to start construction by April 30, 2017, and that Flagstone Island Gardens is in full compliance with its lease.
