Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion is turning to rubble.

Developer Todd Michael Glaser, who paid $18.5 million for the waterfront property at 358 El Brillo Way in March, filed a notice of commencement for the total demolition of the house, Palm Beach County records show.

Glaser, who has been active in Palm Beach, previously told The Real Deal he planned to knock down the mansion this month. He’s working on plans for a new home, and said he will design a Jetsons-esque, mid-century modern mansion.

Epstein, the convicted sex offender and financier who died in jail in New York in August 2019, also owned an Upper East Side townhouse that sold in March for $51 million. Epstein was accused of sexually abusing dozens of young girls in both homes.

Epstein paid $2.5 million for the Palm Beach property in 1990, records show. The six-bedroom, 14,000-square-foot mansion on 0.8 acres was designed by architect John Volk. It was built in 1950.

Home sales in Palm Beach have soared recently, setting new records for residential sales volume and price in the tony town.

Glaser recently flipped a landmarked Palm Beach estate that he was restoring, for $27.5 million, roughly $10 million more than he paid for the home in June.
