Developer Gil Dezer is asking the city of Sunny Isles Beach commission to renew a building permit for the 53-story Solis Sunny Isles tower.
Construction on the tower began in 2007, but was halted after 10 floors due to the economic collapse. Lender Mercantil Commercebank filed a foreclosure lawsuit against developer Alex Forkosh, but Mercantil later sold the note on the property to Dezer.
Although the case is still in court, Forkosh and Dezer appear to be cooperating in an effort to renew the permit; Both wrote letters to the Sunny Isles commission requesting the extension.
A memo issued by the city’s finance department in May reveals that the city is expecting construction at Solis to resume by the end of fiscal year 2013.
Solis was designed by Arquitectonica.
