Bay Pines Mobile Home Park Up For Sale Again

The former Bay Pines Mobile Home Park, across from the VA hospital is for sale again. In May 2006 John Loder bought the 59 acre park in a controversial sale that displaced hundreds of elderly residents who thought that was where they would live the rest of their days.
By the end of 2006 all the residents were gone and it was razed. Today, there is still nothing but dirt and trees. The promise of luxury condos disappeared in the housing bubble, and the property is for sale again.

Loder paid $38.5 million for the property. Today it’s listed for $19 million. The residential zoning allows for 15 units per acre. Possible rezoning of part of it could allow for a hotel, medical office and retail.
