A $4 million beach condo at the Oceanfront Resort and Casino in the Bahamas has some residents wondering if the real estate mogul is making the right move.
The new Oceanfront condo was supposed to be located on the same property as the $3.7 billion Beach City Resort, which opened last month.
But when the Oceanside resort opened last week, a developer made a big deal of not having a pool, gym or swimming pool, and instead added a gym, spa and private beachfront with a pool and spa.
And there is one problem.
According to the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Culture, the Oceanview Beach condo is not allowed in the resort’s pools.
And the Bahamas government is not happy about it.
The Bahamas Ministry has asked the developer to stop the construction of the new Oceanview beach condo, according to a statement on the Bahamas Tourism Department website.
The Ministry is asking for all owners of Oceanview condos in the Caribbean to notify the Ministry of the construction site, as well as any other property owners in the vicinity of the Ocean View Beach condo to notify them of the project and any issues associated with the project.
The statement said the Ministry is also asking that the Ocean view beach condo be moved to another site in the area to avoid any confusion.
We encourage all beachside residents to make contact with their local Government, the Ministry, the Bahamas Government, and any local authorities as soon as possible.
The Ministry will work with the local authorities and the developer, and we will work closely with them to ensure that the construction and development of the Beach View condo does not negatively impact our residents.
The developer of the $4.8 million Oceanview condo has said he is looking to find a site that would allow the beach condo to be built, according the Bahamas News Agency.
The Beach City resort, which is owned by the same developer, was supposed be built in the same location as the Ocean City resort.
