Tenant defies eviction despite ongoing renovations at Miami building

Steve Leidner is the only person living at the Hamilton on the Bay, a 28-story residential building in Miami’s Edgewater bayside neighborhood. He said he was outraged when he received a letter saying he had 60 days to leave and he has refused to do so.

Leidner said he has lived in apartment 2610 for nearly two decades and had a lease until June 2022. He said he was paying $1,496 monthly for the one-bedroom apartment, but his landlord has not allowed him to pay September or October and wants to charge him fees.
