A company controlled by Moishe Mana has filed a lawsuit against the Miami Parking Authority after losing out on a bid to develop a downtown lot.
The suit alleges that the Authority violated state law when they voted to approve a deal with Grand Station Partners to build a rental tower. Mana representatives had met with MPA officials about the property prior to Grand Station submitting a proposal, but illegally kept Mana out of the loop through various means.
Grand Station is controlled by Oscar Rodriguez, who is a personal friend of MPA Chief Art Noriega, according to the suit.
Mana’s proposal called for a 55-story mixed-use tower that took advantage of adjacent property he owned. Grand Station’s winning bid includes a 33-story, 300-unit apartment tower.
Attorney Bruce D Fischman is representing North Miami Avenue Realty, LLC, which is controlled by Mana.
