D.R. Horton has Florida City site under contract

Banyan Cay hotel, golf owner in Chapter 11

The 200-acre Banyan Cay hotel, residential and golf project in West Palm Beach could be sold through bankruptcy after the developer filed for Chapter 11 reorganization protection.

Banyan Cay Resort & Golf LLC filed the Chapter 11 petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in West Palm Beach. Gerard A. McHale, the proposed chief restructuring officer, signed the petition for the West Palm Beach-based company. It was previously managed by developer Domenic J. Gatto Jr.

Miami-based attorney Joseph A. Pack, who represents the debtor, wasn’t available for comment.

The debtor owns the 150-room Hyatt-branded hotel under construction at 2020 Banyan Resort Way, a 130-acre golf course designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, and development sites approved for 179 condo units, 28 single-family homes and 22 villas.

The Chapter 11 filing stays a $95.1 million foreclosure judgment won in February by U.S. Real Estate Credit Holdings, in care of Calmwater Capital.

In addition to the mortgage, the company owes $5 million in mezzanine debt to foreign investors through the EB-5 visa program. The mezzanine lender started the process of seizing its equity in the company.

“The debtors are optimistic that with debtor-in-possession funding and the breathing room afforded to debtors under Chapter 11, the debtors will be in a prime position to engage in a robust sales process for the almost-completed hotel, golf course, development site for 179 condominium units, villas, and all other real and personal property related thereto that will maximize recoveries for all parties,” McHale stated in his declaration in the case.


Keith Poliakoff, Government Law Group

“The attainable housing law will immediately change the landscape of development in Florida. For the first time I can recall in state history, the state government has overridden home rule and taken away the zoning and land use powers from local government.”
