I have a little follow up on the situation with the Fleur de Lis project site. Kind in mind that this is only a rumor at this point, but apparently the City’s Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) was none too happy about Millennium trying to sell the site. They went through a lot of effort and spent a lot of money to secure the site from the former gas station and Hardees that formerly sat at the location and were a little peeved that Millennium was trying to make a profit at the taxpayers expense.
Word has it that there was a “Right of Re-Entry” clause in effect and that the City is calling it in. Perhaps the they will take over the site and shop the development at a more reasonable price to local developers. Anyone want to take on a big project? Please remmeber that this is only a rumor at this point. I’m sure we’ll find out more in the coming weeks.
