Coral Reef Developer Outlines Plans

More than 100 people attended a meeting to hear developer Robert Fleeting describe the proposed $60 million, 248-unit, 12-story twin-tower hotel. Many questions were raised including positioning of the new buildings, public beach access, and when construction would start. Another question was will it be a hotel, condotel, or timeshare? That will depend on the the hotelier chosen for the project.
City approval, hotelier agreement, and financing could take up to 10 months Once that is accomplished construction would start within weeks. Fleeting must wait 30 days from last week’s meeting to seek formal site plan approval, but he has already submitted a preliminary site plan.
The old Coral Reef Hotel has been closed since 2004. Two timeshare buildings are open and will be included in a revised site plan to be submitted to the city. Timeshare owners have agreed to be included in the revised site plan.
