Rio Grande, Puerto Rico (PressExposure) May 20, 2009 -- Further establishing itself as a leading development in the Caribbean, Trump International Golf Club & Residences Puerto Rico (TIPR) has achieved another major milestone by securing the New York State Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomoâs approval of the offering plans for the Beach and Golf villas at the resort. With this in hand, TIPR can begin its sales and marketing efforts in New York and stands apart as the first development in Puerto Rico to ever obtain this important authorization.
Eric Trump, Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisition at the Trump Organization states, âThis is a key accomplishment for Trump International Golf Club & Residences Puerto Rico. I am thrilled that we can begin selling in Trumpâs home state and excited that we can officially bring this spectacular project to the many New Yorkers who know and love both Puerto Rico and the Trump brand.â
âAfter several months of working closely with the Puerto Rico Tourism Company and compiling all the detailed information necessary for the Attorney Generalâs consideration, today we are very proud to be the first and only development on the island to have the New York Attorney Generalâs approvalâ states propertyâs developer Jorge L. Diaz of Empresas Diaz. âThe credibility of the Trump name combined with our impressive plans for the development is what allowed us to achieve this fundamental approval.â
A requirement to promote and sell real estate directly to New York residents and brokers, the offering plan must be approved by the New York Attorney General, who sets out the rules of how a developer may proceed with sales and marketing efforts in the state. Application for such an approval was not allowed for properties in Puerto Rico until last year as there are several strict rules relating to the type of tourism offerings available on site. TIPR has all the components to fulfill the requirements and currently is the only development on the island to achieve it.
Craig Studnicky of International Sales Group is the Director of Sales for the project and explains, âNow that we have the approval, we are planning a series of marketing initiatives in New York which include events with brokers as well as with current and potential buyers. This is also perfect timing as we are now providing amazing financing offers to buyers - a great incentive in todayâs difficult market,â he adds. âWeâve already received a lot of positive feedback and anticipate an overwhelming response from the New York market.â
In addition to the existing 36-hole Tom Kite golf course, all of the 56 Founder Residences at TIPR are fully built and the 10-acre Beach Club is well underway with completion scheduled for mid 2011. By fall/winter of this year, construction will begin for the Golf Villas followed soon thereafter by the Beach Villas.
