Margaritaville cost Hollywood taxpayers $28M more than expected

The three-year-old Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort cost Hollywood taxpayers $28 million more than city leaders realized. Hollywood city commissioners thought the city made a $28 million loan to help finance the development of the 17-story, Jimmy Buffet-inspired resort. But the $28 million loan changed to a grant between the third draft and final draft of a 99-year agreement by the city to lease five city-owned acres where Margaritaville was built.

West Palm Beach may revive rezoning plan to encourage downtown office development

West Palm Beach may reconsider a business district that would encourage downtown office development through rezoning. Mayor Jeri Muoio directed city staff to revive planning for the Okeechobee Business District downtown, which the city commission rejected last year. The proposed district would have rezoned an area that now limits the height of buildings to five stories. But opponents saw the proposal as an attempt to promote one development within the district: One Flagler, a 25-story office building proposed by The Related Companies, led by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Mayor Muoio told the city’s development services director, Rick Greene, to revive planning for the Okeechobee Business District to encourage downtown office development. The city’s Planning Board is scheduled to consider the district on May 15. ...
