Residents who live in waterfront townhomes are asking a Circuit Court judge to block the city approval of Atlantic Crossing.
The homeowners association for Harbour House, where townhomes sell for $2.85 million, say they will be trapped by Atlantic Crossing’s traffic pattern approved by city commissioners in a 3-2 vote on Jan. 21.
Several neighbors want an access road off Federal Highway into the mixed-use project to relieve traffic into residential neighborhoods. Commissioners didn’t require the road.
Harbour House residents, who overlook the Intracoastal Waterway at the eastern end of Northeast First Street, also object to the commission’s decision to temporarily close Northeast Seventh Avenue north of First Street.
“If an accident occurs at that corner, we can’t get out,” Harbour House homeowners president Bruce Leiner said.
A hearing date has not been set.
