HOLLYWOOD - Hollywood Beach residents voice their
frustration at Hollywood city hall about a proposed condo complex that
surpasses height restrictions.
Residents and business owners spoke in front of the technical advisory
committee after hearing about the proposed 12-story, 25-unit condo building
set to be constructed along the 1900 block of Surf Road.
The owner of the condo building, called The Bellamar Residences at Hollywood
Beach, Luis Stabinski, believes it will revamp the area.
Those against the project believe the building will create more traffic
along Surf Road, which will need to be reconstructed for the condo complex.
The high rise will also be taller than what is normally allowed in the city
of Hollywood, but Stabinski reached a settlement with Hollywood City
commissioners easing the height restrictions, which is another reason people
"Why weren't we notified that there was, in fact, going to be a settlement
agreement put on the board so we would be notified so that we had a
recourse?" Hollywood resident Gale Levine said.
Supporters of the condo high-rise say it will increase property values along
the beach in Hollywood.
"Having a project like this on the books is going to bring a higher property
value to the area and really start changing the look of what Hollywood Beach
represents," Hollywood resident and business owner Debra Case said.
