Big Trees

Yes, developer Asi Cymbal can move the Champion Rain Tree say Broward county commissioners in a 7-2 vote on Tuesday to build his large Marina Lofts project. Although moving the tree doesn't sound like the most environmental thing to do, Asi is committed to its preservation and the new Raintree Park he'll create, and has made some extraordinary efforts towards that goal. With a beautiful tree and three spectacular new towers designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels, if all this really flies, Fort Lauderdale would be getting its cake and eating it too. [SFBJ]
