HWSNBN, and when you see this you know its gonna be more bullshit, announced the sale of his prized resort, the marina where I and many others used to call home. Final price: $175 million. Nice profit if you can get it.
For those of you new to the Fritter, go back in the archives a few years, and you can follow the whole sordid affair. Millionaire investor comes in, buys up a marina full of live aboards with several businesses, tears everything down, throws everyone out, builds an ugly, definitely not keysy, designer resort for upscale customers, makes a profit on the sale. He lied to everyone and anyone involved, played fast and loose with the housing codes, and walked away with a box full of money. More than a few people were rendered homeless. People who actually owned some of the docks in the marina found out ownership don’t mean shit when there is more money involved. Overall, it was quite the saga, enough for a not so successful author to pen a novel loosely based on the events.
This is not a nice person. He continues to push out those who simply want to live in the Keys so the rich can come down and show off in their little enclaves. I give him credit for having the know how and resources to pull it off, over and over again, but he obviously has no conscience when it comes to hurting people.
Well, good for him. Hope he enjoys the money. Fucking asshole.
If you read the story you might notice he made mention the marina was full of murderers, prostitutes, and drug dealers. I can tell you here and now, in all the time I lived there I did not do drugs.
