  • Celine Dion’s $1 million, 500,000-gallon water park addition to her $19.5 million Jupiter Island estate
    should have never been approved by the town’s planning and zoning
    department, according to town manager Gene Rauth. In documents obtained
    by the Palm Beach Post, Rauth wrote that department head Jeff Newell
    “showed very poor judgment in granting the approval and thus creating
    and adverse impact on the adjacent properties and the town as a whole.”
    Dion’s project included high waterslides, a lazy river and a wave pool,
    and was the subject of criticism because the construction took place in
    a dunes area that could have been ecologically damaged. Dion apparently
    escaped official scrutiny, however, when Newell gave her verbal
    approval for many aspects of the project. Newell resigned abruptly last
    month while occupancy certificates were being drawn up for Dion’s home,
    and is rumored to have been forced out in part over his role in
    allowing the waterpark project. [Palm Beach Post]

  • Singer Celine Dion and her family have not yet moved in to the $19.5 million Jupiter Island estate on which she has spent nearly $3.2 million in construction costs, but building on the site is almost complete. The home, one of several celebrity estates on Jupiter Island, is highlighted by a 500,000-gallon pool system that one publication has declared “Titanic-sized.’” Two years ago, Dion was listed as one of the top water users in the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County region. According to Palm Beach County property appraiser Laurel Kelly, the renovations to the home will add about $6 million in value to the property. [TCPalm via Sun Sentinel]

  • When golf great Greg Norman decided that the sale of his Jupiter Island
    estate had hit an iceberg and was sinking at the asking price of $47.5
    million, he did more than rearrange the palm trees in his front yard. The “Great White Shark” hired contractors, filed the necessary legal
    work for massive renovations and hiked the price of his Jupiter Island
    spread to $60 million. Apparently, Norman is trying a new pricing strategy for his 8-acre
    seaside hacienda, listed in 2007 for $65 million. It languished unsold
    on the market for almost a year, even after a drastic 27 percent price
    cut of $17.5 million to $47.5 million. If Norman gets anywhere near his asking price, he will outdrive the
    record price for a property on the island: the $44.5 million that
    neighbor and golf superstar Tiger Woods set in 2006 when he bought 12
    acres and began building a family compound.
