The Palm Trees are located in Palm Beach, Florida, a small community with a few dozen homes.
The condo developments, which have received more than $100 million in taxpayer funds, are one of the few remaining examples of affordable housing developments in the Sunshine State.
The development’s developers have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in building the condominium complexes, which are located across the street from the city’s airport.
But as the city of Miami prepares to host a series of events that will include the world’s largest sporting event, the Locker Room Party, in 2022, the Palm Trees and the Locks have been at the center of a controversy.
The Palm Trees have been sued by the city for $10 million.
And while the city has defended its actions, the city and the developers have come under fire for what critics see as a series and misleading public statements.
In October, Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado announced that he had decided to allow the city to begin the process of demolishing the Palm Tree buildings, and that the city would have the final say over the future of the condottieries.
Regalado said at the time that he planned to make a decision on the development in the coming months.
The city’s website states that the Palm trees, as part of the city-owned, affordable housing development, will be demolished “at the earliest available opportunity” and that “the Palm trees will be replaced by the Palm Beach Gardens.”
At the same time, the City has announced that it is withdrawing from the negotiations for the LOCK project, as well as any other future development agreements, pending the outcome of the litigation.
While the city does not publicly comment on litigation, Miami-Dade County Judge Charles Davenport has ruled that the development will be allowed to continue, even though the developers, the Miami-based developer Citi-Group and the developer DHL, have been under investigation for corruption and other allegations, including money laundering and tax fraud.
Citi-Guess, the developer, has been accused of paying a developer $25,000 to make an anonymous contribution to a local candidate for Miami-dade County Commissioner.
DHL has also been charged with money laundering, conspiracy and violating tax law, the county has said.
A series of articles published by the Miami Herald last month detailed allegations that Citi and DHL are violating the terms of the Miami Beach, Fla., hotel license agreement, which states that only developers that have completed construction on the Palm Towers will be eligible for development permits.
Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, who announced his decision to approve the Palm Tower project in January, told reporters last month that the developers should have met the terms and requirements of the license agreement.
The Palm Towers are among more than 50 condominium developments in Miami that have received taxpayer-financed funds.
At least 10 have received funds through the American Conservative’s $1.5 billion National Housing Initiative.
The majority of the $3 billion in federal and state funds have gone toward affordable housing and support for Miami’s elderly.
Miami-DADE COUNTY’S OFFICIAL STATEMENT on the $10 Million Settlement of the Palm Trees lawsuit:The Miami Beach City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday, July 10, to settle the lawsuit against the PalmTrees and to withdraw from any future negotiations with the developers.
The City will retain all responsibility for the development of the units and their future use.
The City of Miami is proud of its commitment to affordable housing, supporting low-income residents, seniors and those with disabilities, and will continue to work to make Miami more affordable for all Miami residents, Mayor Tomás Regalados said.
The city will continue its work to ensure that the condontowns continue to be a vibrant and economically diverse community, and we look forward to working with the PalmTree development team, the development’s owners, the County Commission and the City to continue the progress Miami made with affordable housing.
