After a ton of drama, Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein and husband Lenny are finally allowed to tear down their mansion and build a new one.
The Miami Design Preservation League had been fighting Lisa and Lenny tooth and nail to save the couple's existing Star Island home, which the league considers historic. Now, the league is finally giving up the battle due to money issues.
As you can imagine, the Hochsteins were thrilled to finally move on with their new planned home, which will be a 9-bedroom, 20,000-square-foot mansion. "Trying to make someone else's home historic against their wishes is not what we believe the city of Miami Beach stands for," Lenny says.
Lisa and Lenny were granted approval last year from the Miami Beach City Commission to demolish the house, but the MDPL filed an appeal. The appeal has now been abandoned, as the group didn't have the proper funding to continue it.
Meanwhile, Lisa celebrated the victory on Instagram by posting a video of the news story. "Our victory to finally demolish our home, all over the news last night #houseThatboobsbuilt #rhom #winning #Wealwayswin," Lisa hilariously captions the video. We wish the couple all the best as they build their dream home.
Do you think that the right decision was made in this situation?
