    I'm all in favor of it for Punta Cana and Cap Cana. This area is already nothing like the rest of the DR so why not let them go all the way. Turn it into Miami Beach and leave the rest of the country like it is. That way we can keep all the damn tourists in one place and take their money more easily. I think it's great. Capitalism at it's finest....

    A corporation is being paid. Maybe.

    According to the terms of the trust, Trump has very limited access to information from the trust. It is a revocable trust.

    Problem is the rules have not been officially changed according to law.

    I sense some Corrupt Back-Room Shenanigan Encounters of the Dominican Kind...

    I also think it should be considered and keep it zoned. Maybe even just Cap Cana. Macao Beach would be a real shame though. But somebody mentioned it was at the Roko Ki site. There are only cliffs there and no beach really, as far as I remember, having seen it just once. Cap Cana is a big area. If they keep it some way behind the beach. 22 floors sounds like a lot though and there are many concerns. And I also agree with keeping the rest of the country like it is. They already build high rises though in SD on Av Anacaona and JD. No turning back there.

    22 floors

    I'd be looking at Cdn Gringo's earthquake map before doing that.

    Quite a lot shaking off that coast......

    The developers will do as they may. Avoid rule and regulation with a wink from the authorities. Investors, meaning those who will purchase or rent completed units within the towers will have to consider two hazard risks, earthquakes and fire. Will the towers have fire suppression systems and earthquake construction. Fire suppression is needed as the local fire departments do not have the equipment to address a high rise fire. Earthquake construction is a must due to the high incidence of quakes in the east of the country.

    Suspect both risks will be dismissed by the developers.



    Regards,

    PJT
