Architect Kobi Karp, Developer Todd Glaser and renderings of the mansion (Glaser, Karp)

Todd Michael Glaser and his crew will have to go back again to the drawing board just after a Palm Seaside board rejected designs for a mid-century fashionable spec mansion to be built on the former Jeffrey Epstein home.

Glaser, who tore down the waterfront household that belonged to the late intercourse offender and disgraced financier, sought acceptance of a Kobi Karp-developed estate proposed for the house at 360 El Brillo Way. Karp represented the developer at the July 28 assembly.

Board users of the architectural commission explained the models for the two-tale residence ended up much too professional and did not aesthetically healthy into the avenue and city. 1 member explained it was “excessively dissimilar” to other structures.

At just one place, board member Betsy Shiverick claimed she did not mean to “be so brutal.”

“I consider this house would search terrific in Miami, but it appears to be like nearly alien in Palm Beach,” she stated.

The board denied acceptance of the ideas, so Glaser will have to file a new application. Glaser has been incredibly lively in Palm Seaside, just lately shelling out $85 million for the 2.3-acre Tarpon Island, alongside associates.

Glaser paid $18.5 million for the Epstein home in March and afterwards demolished the property, where Epstein was accused of sexually abusing dozens of younger women. Epstein compensated $2.5 million for the six-bed room, 14,000-square-foot mansion in 1990.

Epstein, who died in jail in New York in August 2019, also owned an Higher East Aspect townhouse that offered in March for $51 million.
