The Related Group’s Jorge Perez has joined as a partner in a
400,000-square-foot condo and hotel project planned by the Ireland
family. Perez has reportedly injected a significant amount of equity
into the Ireland’s Inn in Fort Lauderdale, as a partner with Jack
Ireland and his daughter Kathy Ireland-Mitchell. The elder Ireland had
operated the Inn for years with his late wife. The plan was designed by
Coral Gables-based Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates. The Inn
had closed in 2007 after Hurricane Wilma, and then ran short on
construction financing in 2008. The site is located on 450 feet of
oceanfront east of the A1A. Fortune International’s Edgardo Defortuna
is also a partner. [SFBJ]
