Atlantic Crossing developers suing Delray Beach for $25 million in amended lawsuit

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - A twist in a lawsuit between the city of Delray Beach and the developers of Atlantic Crossing.

In paperwork filed Friday, developers Edwards CDS and CDS Delray Redevelopment, amended their lawsuit against the city now asking for $25 million.

“Atlantic Crossing earned final city commission approval more than 19 months ago. Since then, we’ve faced seemingly endless, unreasonable and costly delays trying to complete the final administrative steps with the city,” said Jeff Edwards in a statement.

The project has been in the works since about 2009. The developers sued the city in June 2015 saying the city unnecessarily delayed the final approval process.

The lawsuit also asks a judge to urge the city to certify the final site plan for the project. It is currently not scheduled to appear before the city commission.

City leaders say they will discuss the lawsuit in a closed door meeting next week.

Atlantic Crossing is a 9-acre mixed use project. It will include more than 300 residences, room for offices, retail and restaurants.

It will be built on the north side of Atlantic Avenue from NE 6th Ave to Veteran's Park. Some demolition is underway.
