Condo owner likes Grande Bay’s ‘European’ flavor

A few owners of the St. John’s new condo development overlooking Cruz Bay have moved in and one has talked about it.  Raymond Krek says he likes the “European living” experience of being close to town, restaurants and the ferry dock. 

The trial lawyer from Wisconsin spoke about life at the waterside condominium development to Eloise Anderson, publisher of the St. John Sun Times.  About the controversy surrounding the still-unfinished project, Krek
said, “If someone says they’re upset we bought here, well I’d say,
‘Let’s talk about it.’  I think we’d have more things in common than we
would have differences.”

Krek said that even though the controversial Grande Bay is years behind schedule, and not exactly what he contracted for, “It was worth the wait.” Anderson’s impression of Krek’s unit: “It’s a fine view, but it’s quite small.”  (Reading the article, you get the idea it’s a one-bedroom condo.)

Another condo owner refused Anderson’s interview request, “fearing negative publicity," she wrote.

  1. Grande Bay and Sirenusa break my heart. I don’t go to the Caribbean to find a place with a “European flavor”. I like the Caribbean to seem like the Caribbean.
