Great Gulf Homes said to be the buyer; high-rise condo expected on site, but minus the hotel

“They are an established builder familiar with the area and with a good track record,” said one source. The company will likely commit to developing some form of high-rise condominium, although the hotel component may no longer be a part of the building, according to sources.
