Granted, anyone who will buy the place is a good thing for the city- even if it is at a loss. I am talking about the Digital Domain Debacle building. I just finished reading in the Tribune that Richard Friedberg is still on track to close on Nov 22. He stated to the reporter that he has had multiple offers from businesses that were interested in renting the building, but he rejected the offers because he "felt it wasn't right for the city." Instead he has his heart set on some sort of art museum.

I'm quite confused about this. A business would bring jobs...jobs that this city sorely needs that pay more than Bass Pro. Instead, we will be better off with a museum? How many people does a museum employ? And who is going to drive out to BFE Port St Lucie to see a museum?? That's crazy. I can't believe this guy can think this will be successful.

I'll be glad to see the building sold, but I feel there will be a lot more to this story before it's all said and done.

I agree with you! I was wondering what real interest people would have in a museum and as you pointed out, wouldn't we know more about it by now? Why would he want to buy it and just sit on it until he decides what the right venue will be and how long will that take? Very interesting indeed!

If you have more than enough money, or you are just plain old rich you can do what-ever you want with your money. Perhaps he is looking for a financial loss to off set a profit somewhere else...or perhaps...it's like the movie stars having a residence in NYC...California...Hawaii...etc...and rarely if ever staying in any of them...they do it because they can!!!

As somebody who works in the hosting industry I am interested in what they are going to do with the small scale datacenter they have inside there.

Here's a pic:

Sad that PSL is still on the hook with this building, but what was this guy thinking??? A museum? Doesn't take a genius to figure out that wasn't gonna make money. It's a difficult building to sell to companies- mainly because of what is was built for. I have a feeling it'll be on the books for another couple of years.
