Bal Harbour Shops has submitted an updated enhancement plan to Bal Harbour Village that ensures that the Shops will continue their 50-year legacy of world renowned shopping and substantial tax contributions, directly benefitting the local community.
The most recent set of plans does not include the Church by the Sea in Bal Harbour. The Church and Bal Harbour Shops had presented several location options to the Village, which deemed all of the sites unsuitable and prompted the Church to move outside Village boundaries. The Church by the Sea voted as a congregation to move to a new, nearby location that will allow them to better serve the community in a more adequate building. Specifically, congregants overwhelmingly voted in favor of the plan on four separate occasions, supporting the move by more than ninety percent in each instance. This change will allow the congregation to realize their long-contemplated plans for the future.
