Issues & Lawsuits
Safety concerns over broken crane due to Hurricane Irma
Thankfully, most pre-constructions were spared Hurricane Irma’s wrath, except Gran Paraiso that suffered from a partially collapsed crane. City’s building official, Maurice Pons has recommended a voluntary evacuation of two neighboring buildings. Contractor Plaza Construction has sent him several letters stating that the crane and its damaged jib have been secured and caused no damage. However, Pons is not convinced.
Gran Paraiso is part of the four-tower, 10-acre mega development by the Related Group. The complex, once complete, will infuse 1400 new condos to Edgewater. The quadruple condo complex will feature a Michael Schwartz eatery, three pools, a beach club, two-story gym and spa with juice bar.
Another Related Group development that suffered at the hands of Irma is the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa in Fort Lauderdale. The storm toppled a crane here, though no extensive damage was reported.
Prices at Paraiso range from the low $600,000s to $2 millions, with a choice of one to three bedroom units and penthouses.
