Interesting June for real estate in South Florida – and this is only June 8

Jimmy Buffett sells his 1925 Palm Beach mansion at 540 S. Ocean Boulevard for $18.5 million. The priciest sale for 2010, it was not listed, sold to a Delaware company with offices in New York, Via Marina, and was appraised for $23.3 million… we wonder – are his stone parrots that top the gates to his drive included in the deal? And that little duplex that he owns on Root Trail? Renters were told the lease will not be renewed.

A UK business school is opening in Miami. Starting with 30 part-time students, it has plans to grow to 600 students over the next three years…

Green Now’s plans to build a recycling facility in Sunrise were voted down in February by commissioners who said it did not meet city code. It also was protested by residents, who cited traffic congestion, noise and pollution as reasons. Principals of Green Now have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to force the city to reconsider.

And a $6 million plan to expand the Delray Beach retreat center of Opus Dei is being opposed to residents who see that, down the road, it may well end up as a drug rehab center.

So, I see, I have not been the only one protesting.
