Commission: Resort can build around condo of family refusing to sell


Work can now continue on a new resort going up around a condo owned by a family who refuses to sell.

The family that owns the condo has been trying to hang on to the 1,100 square-foot property on Turkey Lake Road, and refused to sell it to Westgate Resorts for $150,000.

Orange County commissioners ruled Tuesday the developers can build around the condo.

Construction on the 161-unit resort began with the condo still standing, even though the Corredor family wouldn’t give up the property.

The county previously gave Westgate Resorts permission to build around the condo, but the family’s attorney appealed the decision.

The other issue at hand was that Westgate Resorts started demolishing the condo.

Company officials said it was a mistake that happened before they realized the condo hadn’t been sold.

But their work left the property owners out of compliance and facing fines.

Family members said if they got to keep the condo, they would reconstruct it and make it livable again.
