RESURRECTION

RESURRECTIONThe building sat empty and abandoned, surely feeling forlorn if she could feel—the Grande Dame of Anguillian architecture, society, history and commerce had lost her premier position on island…lost in the rush toward concrete office buildings, small malls and beach front services. But after the fall from grace comes the opportunity for resurrection and salvation […]

The Trifecta Revisited

The Trifecta RevisitedThe Trifecta Revisited In a recent article I wrote for Anguilla Life Magazine I discussed the Trifecta I envisioned on the real estate horizon, whereby a Trifecta (for those who don’t gamble on horses) relates to picking the first, second and third place winners in a race—not an easy trick. At the time […]

Golf, Anyone?

Golf, Anyone?Golf, Anyone? As Anguilla heads into general elections (which will in all likelihood be held in early 2010) the issues concerning the golf course and resort development at Rendezvous Bay may well be a key component of the political discussions–regardless of whether or not the golf course is open or construction has recommenced by […]

Multiple Moratoriums

Multiple MoratoriumsAs Anguilla attempts to accommodate and adjust to the rapid pace of development that has occurred over the past few years, Government has (quite logically, in my opinion) resorted to development and sales moratoriums in an to attempt to moderate the growth of the economy—for while there are numerous benefits associated with economic progress, […]

The More Things Change…

The More Things Change…The More Things Change The overall economic activity on Anguilla is impressive—not only in the real estate sector (which is usually the most obvious area of change, as it impacts the immediately visible physical environment) but across all lines of economic activity. In addition to real estate, with regard to my areas […]

Moratoriums and Things

Moratoriums and ThingsMoratoriums and Things The increased (and increasing) interest in real estate on Anguilla has induced Government to declare a moratorium on large foreign owned development projects—which is, I believe, a correct decision. The primary impetus behind this temporary freeze was the proposed hotel and golf course project in the east–the scale of which […]

HIGH VALUE / LOW VOLUME
