George Smith Partners’ principal and co-founder Gary M. Tenzer secured financing on behalf of Palmer.

Palmer made headlines this week when the Paradise Papers revealed the billionaire was keeping some of his assets – including a private jet – in tax-friendly Bermuda island. The controversial figure, notorious for his firm stance against affordable housing, has an estimated personal fortune of $2.1 billion. A large chunk of that stems from his Faux-Italian complexes near freeways.
