Appeal Court overturns demolition order for $100 million Montrose Road apartment complex
The Court of Appeal has set aside an order by the Supreme Court to demolish a $100 million apartment complex at 18 Montrose Road, in St Andrew.
This follows a unanimous decision by the Appellate Court today (March 31).
Six residents had taken developer Martin Lyn to court, contending that the area was not slated for an apartment complex.
In 2020, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the residents, noting that the area was designated for only single-family houses. The demolition order was therefore issued.
However, Mr Lyn and his children appealed the decision, which led to the demolition order being stayed until the appeal was heard.
The Court of Appeal heard legal arguments on March 22 at the appeal hearing and reserved its decision, before overturning the demolition order today.
