TPI-FMB moves into Phase II, following the final Town Council unanimous approval yesterday afternoon.  Phase I, the zoning approval, is now behind us and documented in an extremely binding protective fashion, in all parties best interests.  Phase II entails design and construction documents along with permitting, which officially launches 9:30 this morning at DeAngelis Diamonds office in Naples.  Our intended schedule has us permitted and starting construction by the very beginning of next year, as close to January 1st as is attainable.  Phase III will begin at that time and include construction and pre-opening operations lasting for two years.  If we are able to hold this schedule, the resort would open to the public January of 2021.

All of the employee/owners at TPI Hospitality want to thank you, the entire community and governing jurisdictions, which have allowed for this opportunity to improve our little island with this community project.   We still need your help and welcome your involvement as we proceed forwards.

From a personal standpoint, I am terribly proud to be a part of this community and project!

Sometime in the next few months, we will have chosen a marketing affiliation for the resort.  At that time, we would like to host an unveiling party and will send out an invite to that festive event, stand by.

Thanks again, and please feel free to share this e-mail with any and all interested parties.  This is a big e-mail list, almost 1,000 people now and growing, we have no way of including everyone and for that reason ask you to share the information as you feel appropriate.

Oh yes, on an affiliated topic, last Friday we closed upon the purchase of 15 acres at the corner of Pine Ridge Rd. and San Carlos Blvd.  We are about two weeks into a market study for the evolving San Carlos Village residential community.  The “Village” will be linked to the TPI-FMB Resort in many ways, enhancing the Resort operations while simultaneously enhancing its immediate surrounding neighborhood.  Standby for more on this in the near future as well.

Thank you,
