Hilton Conrad Fort Lauderdale

hilton-conrad 01The spectacular beach property in Fort Lauderdale that was planned to have been one of Donald Trump’s treasures was sold on the foreclosure block on March 14th of 2012. There was 165.6 million dollars in debt owed on the beachfront property. The winning bidder paid a whopping one hundred dollars for it. Of course, the new owner is still responsible for the $165.6 million in debt. Actually, the winning bidder was Corus Construction Venture, LLC. Honestly, they were the only bidder on the Ft. Lauderdale property. This is surprising to many but in reality, is par for the course.

The Unfinished Condo Hotel

An unfinished condo hotel is worthless in the Ft. Lauderdale community. It’s an eyesore and many people have complained about it to the local authorities. Unfortunately, there isn’t much that could have been done until the foreclosed on Hilton Conrad Fort Lauderdale property has been sold. With the property now in the name of Corus Construction, the owners must do what it takes to complete the project or demolish it. Demolition would be counterproductive and create a huge loss for the owner hence; they will continue to build. Eventually, the twenty-four story tower in Fort Lauderdale will become something however; it is doubtful to become the wonderful vision upon which it was conceived. The cost would be outrageous and to the consumer, it would equate to a $500,000 a night room!

The Wonder of It All

There are so many pending lawsuits on the Hilton Conrad Fort Lauderdale property that a lot of bidders were scared away. Because there were fifty-two Fort Lauderdale condo units already sold, the lawsuits had been filed. This was prior to the foreclosure and sale. Those fifty-two people put sizable deposits on the luxury condo units that they never received however; they are only those that have filed suit. There were actually over one hundred people who brought twenty percent to the table when they signed the contracts. The lawsuits are still pending however; the hotel will be opening by the end of 2013.
