Court Rules Against New Development on OCR

On Wednesday, September 21st, an appellate court ruled against Publix Supermarkets and the town of Cutler Bay regarding the building of a new Publix shopping center on Old Cutler Road at Marlin Drive. Realty Associates, the owner of the Old Cutler Towne Center successfully argued that moving the Publix out of the existing shopping center was a breach of it's contract and that the approval of the new development violated the town's comprehensive plan due to the lack of residential units.
