The land, located on Battle Mountain a short distance from Vail, was purchased by the Ginn Company for $32.75 million. Ginn plans to build a ski resort, including 1700 homes and condominiums, and up to two golf courses on the property.
The annexation was previously approved by a unanimous vote of the town council. However, a few locals felt that Minturn residents should have some say in the decision. This group gained enough support … (0 comments)

bobby ginn: The Lubert-Adler Connection – Where does Bobby Ginn's Development Money Come from? - 04/15/08 11:30 PM
I just finished covering the Ginn Championship at Hammock Beach. The tournament is part of the PGA Champions Tour. This was the second year Bobby Ginn's Ocean Course at Hammock Beach hosted the event. As a response to the downturn in the real estate market, Ginn made some changes from last year. The blimp was gone. It's now owned by Direct TV. The number of volunteers was down a little; as was the compensation package they were given. The Saturday night Smokey Robinson concert was limited to Ginn Club members only.  
But the tournament did not suffer a bit. By all accounts, … (1 comments)

bobby ginn: Amid a Lousy Real Estate Market, Law Suits, and Rumors, is Bobby Ginn Imploding? Not from My Viewpoint. - 10/04/07 12:26 PM
October 4, 2007 - Palm Coast, Florida - Over the past few months, things in Bobby Ginn's world seem to have been disassembling. Bobby now faces a total of seven law suits; two related to his real estate empire and five to his personal foray into and embarrassing exit from NASCAR racing. Some property owners at The Conservatory at Hammock Beach, mostly investors, are rattling sabers because they find themselves unable to flip lots purchased at the market's peak. Ginn has a new president, Robert Gidel, who, not coincidentally, has very close ties to Lubert-Adler, Ginn's longtime funding source (story). Gidel … (14 comments)
