TripAdvisor’s St. John forum has this tasty: “I have been hearing from Westin employees about a rumor that the defunct Pond Bay development was purchased by Starwood and a W hotel will be built."
The Westin is a Starwood property.
While the idea of a big new resort may not be to everyone’s liking, there are few who would not say the abandoned construction site at Chocolate Hole is a real eyesore.
Pia, a contributor to TripAdvisor's island forum and, I believe a real estate agent, says she has heard the rumor,too. She doubts that Starwood would do a lot of new construction. Rather, she believes, Starwood might complete the buildings that are there now, add a pool and some landscaping. “But it is all just rumor at this point,” she added.

it would be better than something just sitting there vacant and getting run down…
Search for Westin St. John on Google Maps. It will return two locations: one at the current WSJ location and the other at the intersection of Pond Bay Rd. and Tradewinds Rd.
