The founder of Maho Bay Camps has begun selling one-acre lots near his resort for new villas. And Stanley Selengut has a $20 million construction plan too for land he owns near Concordia to include dozens of villas, a yoga center, restaurant, recycled arts center, and some eco-tents, according to the St. John Source. The winner of honors, awards and praise for his environmentally-friendly Maho Bay development, Selengut told the online newspaper he is first and foremost a businessman. Now 75, Selengut said he owns land near Maho as well as six acres on the road that runs toward Lameshur where he hopes to build a shopping area, parking garage and condominiums.
Selengut expects to have the restaurant and yoga center open next winter. He thinks the entire project will be done in 8 years, when his lease on the Maho Bay land expires. He does not expect it to be renewed, and he is hopeful that the land owners will work with the National Park to insure the 30-year-old campground might continue, as a concession operated by someone else.
