The former CEO of La Quinta Holdings is suing the development group of Sabbia Beach. Wayne Goldberg is alleging the developer falsely induced him to purchase a condo for $5.35 million. He is now seeking to close on the penthouse and recover compensation for the harm he and his family have suffered. The complaint alleges that Fernbrook Florida falsely represented that only seven units at the Pompano Beach condo project were still available at the condo development, driving up the sales price.

Fort Lauderdale has a big water problem. The city will hold on fixing its water treatment plant after the lowest bid it received was $15 million higher than the city’s budget, according to the Sun Sentinel. The city commission still plans to use about $10 million in utility funds to pay for other city services, despite the city’s aging water and sewer systems, and crumbling pipes. [Sun Sentinel]

Developer Jeff Greene is back to building condos on a West Palm Beach site he’s building on. Greene bought the property at 550 Quadrille Boulevard in 2014, and planned to build 84 luxury condos at the mixed-use project. Then, he decided to replace the condos with rental apartments when he reconfigured his plan to include less office space. Now, he told the Palm Beach Post that there is “such a demand for smaller units that are super luxurious and have an enormous amount of amenities” that he’s leaning toward selling the 300-plus units as condos.

Robert Finvarb and Tony Cho closed on a $67 million loan for a mixed-use hotel near Brickell City Centre. The partnership secured the financing from City National Bank to build a 21-story, 264-key dual-branded hotel on the property. The project, designed by Arquitectonica, would also feature 25,000 square feet of retail space, structured parking and a rooftop terrace. [TRD]

Ex-members of Trump National Doral have been waiting to inch forward on the refund list at the Doral golf course and resort — and they may have to wait decades more. To move up on the list by one spot, four new members need to join the golf club, and the list is more than 265 people long, according to the Miami Herald. Few members have joined between December 2017 and January 2019. One member said that he moved up by two spots, which means only eight members had joined in that period of time. [TRD]
