    Eagle Beach-possiable development

    I was not happy to get this email today from the property manager at Oceania. We are hoping this project does not go through because Eagle Beach is a low rise area and 8 stories with 800 units is not a good fit for this area.

    Dear owners,
    On behalf of the Board they want to inform.
    It appears the project on the Sands property next door may proceed to construct an 800 unit hotel, possibly 8 stories high.
    In order to protect our views, property values, and quality of life on Eagle Beach, the board has engaged the services of an experienced attorney to pursue legal remedies to maintain the low rise and low density regulations.
    We will keep you informed as to actions the board may pursue.
    Kind regards

    I wonder what is meant by "may proceed". Isn't there a law (or rule) about the height of eagle beach properties?

    ETA: I know the new structure by LaCabana is going to be 7 story, but only the height of LaCabana which is 4 stories.

    It is my understanding that from the beach/street to a certain point back, they cannot build over three stories, but after a certain point, they can. They want the whole building to be 8 stories starting at the road which will surely obstruct views and over populate the beach.

    800 Xtra rooms at say an average of 3 people per room will but over 2k extra people in that area whenever its sold out....that's a ton of extra people on the beach and would make it packed IMO. The people that own at Oceania and LaCabana etc....must be besides themselves.

    There are almost that many rooms if you combine LaCabana and Tropicana who share the same beach area. LaCabana is almost 400 rooms and Tropicana is around 360 rooms. They have the busiest beach area on Eagle Beach.

    I own at Oceania and am very upset. I am not against development of the lot, but rather the size and number of rooms. It should follow the set back rules and have less rooms.
