Important Announcement Regarding the Cenacle Property (South of JPC)

Members of the James Place Condominium and Surrounding Neighbors, please see below a redacted email James Place Condo (JPC) received Thursday May 29th, 2014.

Date: Thursday, May 29, 2014, 2:08 PM

5/29/14, Manny Martinez

Dear [James Place Condominium Association],

I am reaching out to you as a neighbor of the Cenacle Property located at 1400 S. Dixie Highway in Lantana. Jerry Goray and I are the contract purchasers of the Cenacle Property which we would like to redevelop with a luxury first-class multifamily residential community. We are local developers with a positive track record building outstanding communities. We have been reaching out to area residents to share our plans and get input to improve the plans. On March 20, 2014, we hosted a community meeting at the Lantana Recreational Center. As resident of James Place Condominium, we would like to speak with you.

As a brief update, we applied to the Town of Lantana for zoning and site plan approval along with variance requests to allow 6 stories, to reduce the parking requirement which is very high compared to National and South Florida standards, and to maintain a 6 foot tall fence. Attached please find a color site plan.

In designing the new community, we have been very sensitive to neighboring properties like yours. We placed the buildings in the center of the property to provide more than 7 times the minimum setback. The trash compactor is discretely placed next to the Manalapan water plant. We are providing 10 feet or more of landscaping buffer along the perimeter that will have trees, palms, and shrubs. The entire front of Dixie Highway will be very attractive with a new Welcome to Lantana sign, lush canopy trees, elegant palms and layers of flowering shrubs together with a fountain, pavers, and other design features to enhance the public experience while driving through Dixie Highway. Our open space will be close to twice the open space required by code. The residential units will feature high end finishes and amenities comparable to luxury condominiums. We believe that our development will help Lantana by redeveloping the Cenacle property with a use that is more compatible with your property, by building an exceptional residential community that attracts upper income professionals to support local businesses, and by raising property values.

A hearing with the Town Council is scheduled for Monday, June 9 at 7 PM to discuss changing the use from commercial to allow residential. The site plan will be discussed at another hearing. At your earliest convenience, I would like to speak with you and the Board of James Place Condominium about the plans and any feedback you may have. Please feel free to reach me at my cell 305-796-4562 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

James Place Open Letter to Trinsic Residential Group

JAMES PLACE CONDOMINIUM UNIT OWNERS

To:       Trinsic Residential Group, Trinsic Acquisition Company and Goray Development

Attn:   Mr. Manny Martinez and Mr. Jerry Goray

Fr:        James Place Condominium Unit Owners

Re:       Sisters of the Cenacle Property Lantana

Gentlemen,

We are writing to express our collective concern with the current plan for redevelopment of the Sisters of the Cenacle Retreat property. As you are aware, this property borders our own property directly.

Our concerns are focused in the following areas:

1.      Unit Density

2.      Bordering Wall/Fencing

3.      Building Height

4.      Available Parking

Unit Density

We have a high degree of concern related to the re-zoning of this property. As we currently understand, the proposed plan wishes to place as many as 320 rental units there. This relatively large number of non-ownership occupied units raises concern in many areas including, but not limited to:

o   Safety

o   Noise

o   Cars, Traffic, etc.

We all agree that an R-15 zoning designation is more appropriate and feasible for this property. In fact, many neighboring communities including our own have considered commissioning our own traffic study to further understand the impact of such a high number of rental units to our roadways.

Bordering Wall/Fencing

Even at 150 units, our residents feel a (6) foot masonry wall would be appropriate to ensure the security of our residents and property as well as other residents and properties nearby.

For many years we have endured strangers traversing our property from all directions. Without a solid border, a new development of any size with likely increase the number of unwanted foot travelers exponentially and bring with it the omnipresent threats of theft, vandalism and general criminal mischief.

Building Height

In addition, we understand you wish to construct a building that is (6) six stories in height while the current ordinance only allows (5) five stories. Half Moon Bay, Hidden Banyan and ourselves are 5 five stories which adheres to our current neighborhood and within the variance allowed. We feel a 6 six-story rental building on each side of 5 five-story homeowner condos will potentially dwarf us and thus reduce our property values.

Available Parking

We also noticed a parking variance to allow 1.8 parking spaces per unit. The residents at James Place can speak to this issue directly: we have the same problem here and this is a quandary in the making.

There is and always has been an issue of parking spaces at James Place. In fact, this very issue has been, and continues to be, a sticking point on sales and rentals in our building. Many would be purchasers and lessors have walked away from deals due to the lack of parking.

Many of the unit owners use the guest parking spaces of which are few (5 total for 25 units) and we end up in disagreements. Many times the police, a tow truck or our fining committee has been called in to settle said disputes. Despite many units being seasonal, this is a focal issue at James Place and we cannot ignore it.

Summary

It has come to our attention that Patrick (Pat) Smith was or has worked out some sort of an agreement with you. Pat has spent much of his time and his own money on this case and we appreciate his input. Additionally, our own Board has spent funds previously to secure a desirable development at the Cenacle property in the past, as well.

When considering the development plans please keep in mind our own valid concerns. Additionally, Pat has indicated that our building was going to have a much-needed improvement and in return we would help our soon to be neighbors complete their plans and kick off development of their project.

We are asking for this agreement on paper and would like to see precise terms and agreements. We as unit owners would like to know what these terms are before any Lantana Town meetings.

We want to give Pat all the support he needs to finish what both he and we have been working on for many years. That said, we ask that you contact Pat Smith so that the unit owners here at James Place will not be charged any additional assessments for additional legal fees. Too much has been spent and we as unit homeowners feel Pat now deserves the help and support he will need.

Members of the James Place Condominium and Surrounding Neighbors, please see below an email James Place Condo (JPC) received Monday July 7th, 2014.

Dear Resident of James Place Condominium,

We are cordially inviting you to the Lantana Town Council hearing of next Monday July 14 at 7PM in which the redevelopment plans for the Cenacle property (1400 S. Dixie Highway) will be discussed including the site plan. My partner Jerry Goray and I previously reached out to you as contract purchasers of the Cenacle Property. Our site plan has remained substantially the same site plan that we shared with you previously and we have added more details such as the landscaping buffer and the fencing details which provide adequate buffer and security between the properties.

In designing the new community, we have been very sensitive to James Place Condominium. We placed our buildings in the center of the Cenacle property to provide more than seven times the minimum setback. The trash compactor is near the Manalapan water plant, very far from James Place. Our building elevations are very attractive and are buffered with a wide landscaping strip along the perimeter that will have trees, palms, and shrubs as well as another buffer strip in front of the buildings. The entire front of Dixie Highway will be very attractive with a new Welcome to Lantana sign, lush canopy trees, elegant palms and layers of flowering shrubs together with a fountain, pavers, and other design features to enhance the public experience while driving through Dixie Highway. In addition, we are providing work-live townhome units along Dixie Highway to be rented by professionals such as tax accountants, interior designers, architects, artists, and others which do not generate the impact of more traditional commercial uses. Our open space will be close to twice the open space required by code. The residential units will feature high end finishes and amenities comparable to luxury condominiums. We believe that our development will help Lantana by redeveloping the Cenacle property with a use that is more compatible with James Place, by building an exceptional residential community that attracts upper income professionals to support local businesses, and by raising property values.
