Ellyn S. Bogdanoff Scores Big Win for HOAs Blocking New Development on Hendricks Isle

Becker Shareholder Ellyn S. Bogdanoff successfully represented a large group of homeowners’ associations and residents against a condominium development on a neighboring lot.

“This is a high profile win in Fort Lauderdale,” said Becker Government Law & Lobbying Practice Chair, Bernie Friedman.

At issue was a plan from developer Lumiere to build a five-story condominium on a narrow lot on Hendricks Isle. Specifically, there were objections to the size and placement of the building on the lot.

Initially, the project was approved, but Commissioner Steve Glassman requested a new hearing regarding the development on the $2.4 million property, which is in an area experiencing a building boom. Ultimately, the board agreed that the setback of the proposed building from the street was insufficient.

In a win for Becker’s clients, city commissioners ultimately rejected the project by a 3-2 vote.
