He will oversee long-delayed project, devise ‘coherent plan.’
A circuit court judge has agreed to the appointment of Delray Beach Mayor Cary Glickstein as a “receiver” to oversee the beleaguered Palm House condominium-hotel project, which has been under construction for several years on Royal Palm Way.
Palm Beach County Judge Donald W. Hafele appointed Glickstein as part of an agreement among several parties to resolve an internal ownership dispute that had raged since last fall. The appointment slammed the brakes on multiple legal actions filed at the county courthouse involving key Palm House players.
Glickstein will work to “secure, improve, repair, manage and oversee completion of construction” and improvements at the property, which has been under renovation since 2006, according to Hafele’s order.
In addition to generating lawsuits and construction liens, the Palm House project at 160 Royal Palm Way is the target of a foreclosure action brought by its primary mortgage lender.
