Developer planning restaurantShaul Zislin eyes spring opening for Gulf Place eatery in Gulf Shores Wednesday, October 03, 2007 By RYAN DEZEMBERStaff Reporter in Mobile Press RegisterGULF SHORES -- With a sluggish demand for resort real estate, developer Shaul Zislin told the City Council that he plans to wait on building a mixed-use tower at the city's main public beach and put a restaurant there until the market improves.

Time Running Out For Non-Conforming Condo Projects In Gulf ShoresBy Clayton Wallace in Condo Owner MagazineDevelopers of eight condo projects in Gulf Shores have been given a deadline of Oct. 10, 2008, to acquire a building permit or forfeit approved site plans. According to city officials, if the site plans are forfeited, the density of subsequent plans could be reduced dramatically, thereby endangering the financial viability of the projects.When the city of Gulf Shores enacted its "Envision Gulf Shores" zoning plan to limit building height and density in the city, it received high praise from most people. Officials said the goal of the plan was to limit development along the city's beachfront areas. One goal of the plan was to create a pedestrian-friendly area at the foot of Ala. Hig...

Appraisals must be done fairlySunday, September 02, 2007 By STEVE McMILLANSpecial to the Press-Register Given all the recent attention being paid to property taxes in Mobile and Baldwin counties, I think the public would benefit from some more information and background on property tax and appraisal issues. The Alabama constitution and state law make it very clear that all property must be appraised at fair market value. Property owners must be treated fairly and governments must comply with the law. Indeed, the constitution demands that "all taxes levied on property in this state shall be assessed in exact proportion to the value of each property." Furthermore, the Code of Alabama clearly mandates involvement of each county tax official, governing body, board of equalization and the St...

Gulf condo projectsSunday, September 02, 2007 By KATHY JUMPERReal Estate Editor Larry Wireman won't build more condominium units at Caribe Resort in Orange Beach until the market heats up, but he does plan to construct the 14,000-square-foot Caribe Restaurant overlooking Perdido Pass, the Gulf of Mexico and Cotton Bayou. "It's something I promised the people that bought in here a long time ago," Wireman said. "I think it will enhance the property values. The owners can walk from their unit along the boardwalk to the restaurant." Almost two years of sluggish condominium sales have caused many developers to kill some new projects and put others on hold. It's difficult to get financing for new condo construction with almost 3,000 units -- about 1,350 of those Gulf-front -- already on the m...

Coast condo industry pushes for action on rising insurance rates9/1/2007, 11:00 p.m. CDT By GARRY MITCHELL The Associated PressMOBILE, Ala. (AP) - As Labor Day tourists take an end-of-summer beach trip, owners of thousands of condominiums that line the Alabama Gulf Coast say they're getting burned by soaring insurance premiums. Insurance legislation aimed at making coverage available and affordable on the coast since rates spiked after Hurricane Katrina couldn't come soon enough for the resort real estate industry. "It's horrible. Rates have gone through the ceiling," said Fort Morgan builder Greg Miller. Miller said Friday he paid $22,000 in coverage on four condo units until Katrina struck two years ago. He said he now pays $108,000 on his units for less coverage. "That's all we could...

The construction of Fort Morgan began in 1819 and finished in 1834. Fort Morgan was the first line of Confederate defense during the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864.
