Harbor Bay Isle

Harbor Bay Isle Associates has asked the city to pause its controversial application to build 80 luxury homes where the Harbor Bay Club now stands – and to speed approvals for a new fitness club on North Loop Road.

“It’s always great when Tim brings a new project to fill the chambers,” City Planner Andrew Thomas joked Monday of C. Timothy Hoppen, president of Harbor Bay Isle Associates.

Opponents of a proposal to build 80 luxury homes where the Harbor Bay Club now stands are saying the club was offered long ago in lieu of planned recreation space and that residents would lose their primary recreational space if the club is moved into the Harbor Bay Business Park.
