AVENTURA, Fla., October 12, 2017 – In the querulous ongoing litigation between residents of two islands in Aventura’s Dumfoundling Bay and the developer of the luxury condominium project, Privé at Island Estates, on a neighboring island, a circuit court judge has handed Privé Developers, LLC, yet another victory.
In his latest ruling in favor of Waldman Barnett’s clients, developers Gary Cohen and Two Islands Development Corp., Miami-Dade Circuit Judge William Thomas confirmed, over objection by neighboring residents, that Privé condominium unit owners have unfettered access to the island where Privé is located and an easement to travel over the connected island to reach their new units. Judge Thomas also clarified that a contested marina on the South Island is for use by the residents of both the North Island, where Privé is located, and the South Island.
“This ruling is a welcome validation and acknowledgment of our clients’ rights for their iconic and nearly completed island project,” said Glen Waldman. “We are beyond pleased with the unquestionable clarity the judge has provided.”
Joining Waldman on the Waldman Barnett team working on this case were co-managing partner Eleanor Barnett, along with partners Jeffrey Lam, Jason Gordon and Michael Sayre, and associate Michael Azre.
With this latest victory, the firm has removed all obstacles to the completion of Privé, paving the way for residents to move in, beginning next month.
