Dominican republic on north coast – MAGIC SPOT – Villa of 220m2 with 5 bedrooms

100_1268

MAGIC SPOT is a community residence located on the north coast on the heights of the small village of Cabrera, only a few kilometers from the famous Playa Grande Golf Course and its splendid beach.

The nearest international airports are Puerto Plata and Samana (El Catey). You just have to walk along the coast for barely an hour to reach the Costa Verde region, which combines both authenticity and tourist attraction. It is a region apart, different from the poles dedicated to the mass tourism of the south-east of the island. It offers both quality tourism and charm, with many opportunities for excursions, since Cabarete is less than an hour away and Las Terrenas about an hour and a quarter away. The center of the capital is accessible by the new highway in two hours and thirty minutes maximum. You will not be tired of discovering the many beaches and wild coves, such as Playa Entrada, Playa Diamante, Playa Caleton, Playa Magante.

The residence has a private access and the association of 15 owners shares the various monthly charges. You can install high-speed internet access and the package of TV programs Canal Satellite. The owners are mostly foreigners, of all origins, all concerned with a service and a quality living environment.

Casa Felina is an excellent product of rental profitability, since Cabrera is above all a charming village recognized in the Dominican Republic and on an international scale as tourist hub. Several agencies ensure the regular maintenance of the villas and the management of the seasonal rentals, which will allow you to enjoy your villa during the period of your choice and to rent it for the rest of the year.

The Packard Plant redevelopment will start construction this spring in DETROIT

1136661483

One of the largest redevelopments in Detroit right now that’s moving forward is the Packard Plant. The undertaking will be massive (10-15 years), but tenants could be moving into the administration building by late 2018.

The admin building, which faces East Grand Boulevard, is currently undergoing asbestos abatement with the help of a $300,000 Wayne County loan from the Environmental Protection Agency. Once abatement is complete, construction will begin on renovating the 121,000-square-foot building. The administration building was the last in the complex to be vacated and its condition isn’t as bad as many of the other buildings.

Tenants for the admin building are lined up already, including Arte Express, the group who owns the Packard Plant and is running the redevelopment, Silveri Architects, Detroit Training Center (an organization that trains Detroiters for jobs), Environmental Consulting & Technology Inc., Testing Engineers & Consultants, Sterling Security, and Esto’s Garage.

The first floor will have a gallery and event space.

 Also included in the renovation: the bridge over Grand Boulevard, which has been cleaned of graffitti and wrapped to protect the street from falling debris.

Speaking of debris, it you’ve driven near the site, you know that there’s quite a bit everywhere – from the building, from people illegally dumping garbage. Much has been cleaned up, but since it’s such a large area (millions of square feet) and it’s been happening for so long, there’s still a lot of clean up to be done.

The group was granted a 12 year freeze from City Council on taxes, meaning they will pay taxes on what the property is worth now, but they won’t see them increase as the renovations increase the value. They’ve also received approval for their Brownfield Plan.

Location

Diversity

 

As a business owner, you’re able to serve a diverse consumer market. Michelle adds, “There is such diversity in the types of businesses. Where creativity and industry come together. As a consultant, I have had poets to governmental entities as clients.” Grace Keros, owner of American Coney Island, a family-owned business that’s been a part of Detroit’s fabric for 99 years, says, “The people of Detroit are different. We have a location in Vegas, and though we get a diverse crowd in Vegas, it still doesn’t compare to the people in Detroit.”

 
Resources, Resources, Resources

 

Detroit continues to focus on rebuilding and strengthening its economy, providing an abundant amount of resources to assist already established businesses, and to attract new business. The Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC), Detroit Biz Grid, and Motor City Match are just a few of the organizations that provide assistance for Detroit business owners. These organizations and many others are connecting business owners with services that include business planning and strategy, real estate assistance, funding, co-working space, and more in their proactive efforts to aid in Detroit’s economic growth.

Automation Alley’s 2016 Technology Industry Report forecasts that Southeast Michigan will be a better place for technology companies to do business than Silicon Valley. Amazon recently opened its tech hub in downtown Detroit, positioning Detroit in becoming a key location for the technology industry. There are also local companies that offer tech training and business startup assistance in efforts to cultivate and grow the local tech talent.

Real Estate Scheme (RES) Mauritius

788483246

What is the Real Estate Scheme (RES)

The Real Estate Scheme (RES) is essentially a slimmed down version of the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS) that has made such an impact on the Mauritian
property market in the last two years.  The thinking behind the scheme is to let smaller land owners have a share of the property development pie.  IRS development has been dominated by the large sugar companies. The benefit for investors is that RES property will be more affordable than IRS property.

No Mauritians may purchase the property

The project property size must be between 1 Arpent (about 1 acre) and 10 Hectares
•    Must be freehold land – this rules out any beach front property that is usually government owned and leased.
•    The scheme must offer commercial and leisure amenities in addition to residential.
•    The scheme must provide day to day support services such as solid waste disposal, security, maintenance, gardening and household services
•    Only small land owners who have owned the land for at least 5 years may apply for an RES permit.  This land owner should not own more than 10 hectares in total in Mauritius.
•    Individual sites should not exceed 1.25 arpents (about 1.25 acres).
•    There is no minimum investment value (IRS has a minimum of USD 500 000)
•    Payment for purchases off-plan shall be in installments according to construction progress.
•    The first purchaser pays registration duty of $25 000.
•    Re-sales require the purchaser to pay land transfer tax of 5% on the property value plus the registration duty of $25,000.
