As former cottage owners in the 70’s and visitors in the 2-3 winter months to your lovely north end Beach, I am really concerned about the proposed Margaritaville proposed project. Why is it so many stories above what is allowed in this north end of the island? To me it will diminish the unique character of this end of the island and be more like the high rise south end. And – will it be an incentive for other developers to do the same? Step by step this end will surely loose it’s irreplaceable character. I love what you have done so far and hope your will keep up the exciting great work!

Editor’s note: The Margaritaville Resort on the Helmerich Plaza site will be 52 feet tall with a total of four stories, with lower height and density than several current downtown/north end properties.
