Issues & Lawsuits

Gran ParaisoEdgewater

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.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
