What do you get for the man who has it all?How about a resort and marina, 900 miles away from your hometown?
One of these was a plan to build a massive resort on the shores of Lake Michigan that has divided a local town.
Yesterday, McClendon cleared a major hurdle to seeing the plan through, as a judge okayed a settlement between Saugatuck Township, Mich. and the LLC McClendon has set up to develop the property.
McClendon purchased the property some seven years ago for $38 million. Local news reports have described it as “pristine piece of dune land,” while the firm representing McClendon has argued it’s derelict.
In any event, here are the specs for the project, which would be called “Singapore Dunes”:
- Three towers with condos
- 24 houses
- 66-slip marina
- An equestrian centre
- An inn with 25 rooms
- 9-hole golf course
Here’s what the project looks like. (And to be clear, this is a planned development, not a future McClendon residence.)
Here’s the project’s logo
And here’s how part of the property currently looks:
