Coconut Grove Waterfront Development Being Delayed

Waterfront Site In Coconut Grove

A lawsuit against the Grove Bay Investment Group LLC filed by Stephen J. Kneapler that was dismissed, is now under appeal. 

Because of the lingering lawsuits, Scotty's Landing and the Chart House have agreed to remove the December 31, 2014 termination license and continue on a month to month basis, according to Miami Today.

In 2013, City Commissioners agreed to allow Grove Bay Investment Group LLC to develop 7 acres of waterfront land for $18 million that will include a Shula's and Oceana, Pub & Grub and retail space. Voters approved of the plan in November 2013.

A judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by Steve Kneapler against The Grove Bay Investment Group the claiming the city did not have enough votes to pass a referendum allowing the waterfront project to be built. 

Voters approved an $18 million two story waterfront restaurant to replace Scotty's Landing and The Chart House, which is next to Miami City Hall. Scotty's Landing restaurant has been there for 35 years and is a local favorite. Part of the approval process is the restoring of two old Pan-Am hangars, which was formally used to store airplanes. Coconut Grove architect firm Arquitectonica is designing the project. More renderings of the waterfront design can be seen here.

Kneapler plans on appealing.
