The latest plan is for a 32-story, 340-foot tall condo building at the north corner of the island, where SkyForce’s helipad and an antenna sit now. Attached to it will be a 4-story garage with a pool on its roof.

Whether this project happens or not we’ll have to wait and see, but the courts have so far sided with the property developer. In November a judge in the latest case ruled that per Sunbeam’s 1962 agreement with WIOD the station has an irrevocable right to park on at least some of WIOD’s property.
