Lawsuit Seeks to Block Development on Long Beach Property

Christian Browne, a Partner with the Firm, is co-counsel in a lawsuit filed on August 3 in New York State Supreme Court, Nassau County, seeking to halt the development of a six-acre parcel in Long Beach as two high-rise apartment buildings.

The project calls for construction of two 160-foot-tall, 15-story buildings, with 11,000 square feet of retail space along the boardwalk on a six-acre parcel located between Riverside Boulevard and Long Beach Boulevard, including two levels of underground parking. The developer was granted the necessary permits after reaching a settlement with the city in January 2014. The city also granted a variance for the buildings, allowing the developer to exceed the city’s height limit of 110 feet and 10 stories.

Mr. Browne and his co-counsel have argued the development should not move forward because the developer missed the deadline in obtaining the permits. They are seeking to have the permits invalidated and the variances deemed expired. A court date has yet to be determined.

This was reported in Newsday.
