    Default Lifestyle development in Cabarete

    Here's the latest on the Lifestyle development in Cabarete. Apart from the possibility of increased employment, it doesn't seem like good news.

    It is a story about illegal construction. Will anything be done about it is the question.

    The construction has been going on for over a year and now they suddenly decide it's illegal(?). Sounds to me like they waited so they could squeeze more money out of Lifestyles.

    It was quite obvious it is illegal, how could anyone not know?

    I think it will be good for Cabarete, hopefully it does something for the dead town!!!

    It will do better than that Ahnvee place in Sosua. Even though you must cross the street to get to the beach it's only 100 yards away. More restaurant options, better beach, much better for couples, families and sports enthusiasts.It even has a little Sosua action sprinkled in.

    The lifestyle project includes the construction across from the street from the 5 story building where dozens of 3 story units are to be built. The plan may still include a pedestrian bridge linking the property on both sides of the street. When questions arose regarding the lack of any permits for this new work on the beach side, the Lifestyle folks where able to get a quick presidential decree from their friend Danilo. There is no presidential decree covering the five story building or other work on the other side of the street, but no doubt they can get it if they are pressured due to the lack of permits from the ministry of tourism and the ministry of environment.

    Agreed beyond any doubt on that.

    For all the above reasons, including the beach club currently being built on the ocean side.

    I cannot imagine breaking the laws regarding the project's construction having any impact on completion of the project. Why would such things make any difference?

    The original plans, before Lifestyles purchased the abandoned project, were to have a pedestrian bridge for clients over the highway. Not sure if this is part of Lifestyles design.

    The risk being if/when a new President, they may "TRUMP" the previous agreement!

    Once its built and people are there, another administration three years from now will not care nor want the publicity for the harm it would do to tourism.

    I need to correct my prior post. Lifestyles did get a license for the beach side part of their project from medio ambiente in February. The presidential decree that authorizes limited use of the 60m from the water was from an unrelated prior project promoter in 1992.
