    ” Adesso non è la fine, nemmeno l’inizio della fine. Ma è probabilmente, la fine dell’inizio!!!”

    “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

    Roy and Lea Black’s Star Island mansion is back on the market with the price cut to $16.5 million — and it’s being offered as a possible teardown.

    Alexander of Elliman is now co-listing the waterfront estate at 45 Star Island Drive in Miami Beach with the previous listing agent, Lourdes International Realty. Alatriste had the listing for $16.995 million before the home was taken off the market in mid-October.

    The 10,636-square-foot house, built in 1981, sits on a 1.07 acre or 46,429-square-foot lot, property records show. It has 193 feet of water frontage, according to the listing.

    “It presents many opportunities,” Alexander said. “It has an existing house, so you can keep the existing house and renovate; or if you like, you can take it down and start from scratch.”
    The price equates to $1,551 per square foot for the home or $355 per square foot for the land. Prominent criminal defense attorney Roy Black and his wife Lea, a star of the former Real Housewives of Miami, paid $7.1 million for the home in 2011, records show.

    Alexander said they intended to build their “dream home” there, and had rented the existing home in the meantime. But they decided not to move to the property, and are instead remaining in their current home. Property records show they own a house at 832 South Greenway Drive in Coral Gables, and maintain their homestead exemption there.

    “It had to do with the buyers having a change of heart, change of plans,” Alexander said. Architectural designs by Ralph Choeff for a new home can be included in the sale, he said.

    The property is next to Shay Kostiner’s 44 Star Island, which was just listed for $24 million. Kostiner has scored approvals for a new 27,000-square-foot mansion on a 1.1-acre lot, and the plans are included in the sale price.

    “If someone wanted to have a large piece of property, they could have the potential to buy them both,” Alexander said.

    Star Island, among the ritziest enclaves of Miami Beach, is home to entertainers Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Lennar CEO Stuart Miller, billionaire Phillip Frost and his wife Patricia, Sean “Diddy” Combs; the “Boob God” Leonard Hochstein and his wife, Lisa, of the Real Housewives of Miami — who have torn down their home and are constructing a new mansion.

    “We’re very confident in the current market for this type of product,” Alexander said, “because there are very few large lots, and this is where we are seeing demand from ultra-high net worth individuals.”

    Whether you’re on a bike or in a car, you’d better drive DEFENSIVE. This is NOT aggressive NOR passive aggressive, but plain simple calm defensive. Plan what is on the road ahead of you and all around you. Be proactive. Take responsibility for your skills & the skills of the other drivers. Never assume they are as good as you, bad skilled as you or excel your driving skills. Stay neutral and respond to the road, the traffic, and circumstances in a calm way. Why? Why? Why? It could save your time, your life or someone else’s life. Agree?

    Hope or Expectation or Cry of Desperation 

    Make It Your Problem

    I was out early this morning to watch a grandson play hockey and made two stops on the way home. We don’t ‘shop’ on Saturday very often and completely forgot that this is the Dark Side Weekend (Black Friday to Cyber Monday). Everywhere there were people rushing from one item to the next, clutching their bounty and praying that the next thing would fulfill them. The icon of stuff isn’t rooted in hope, it is covered in desperation, Meaning doesn’t come from acquiring more, it comes from inside by being more.

    Hope allows and urges you to stop piling up stuff you think you need, believe you need, want to need beside the stuff you bought yesterday, last week, last year (that didn’t bring anything more than a fleeting relief from the anxiety and emptiness).

    Seek hope in relationships. Find hope in experiences. Cherish hope in a good book. Delight…

    Ten Years From Now 

    Make It Your Problem

    I heard a business leaders, last week, speaking about integrity and the exponential rate the world is changing. He said ” in the two hours we are in this room, the world has changed – we just don’t know how or understand what it means yet”, The speaker was a senior leader, the head of a multi billion dollar group of companies and a respected community member. I took his words to heart and have repeated them often over the past 7 days. I agree that there is a tremendous amount of uncertainty in tomorrow and next week and next  year. I believe more will change more quickly than any of us are imagining.

    But, I have decided I need to still hold on to a longer view. A north star navigation point whose gravity is pulling me towards the preferred tomorrow. I have begun with the question ” Where…
