|Angel E. Torres and Gonzalo Munoz are Key Krome Partners and own 347 acres. Of course we all know that Krome Gold (465 acres, purchased in 2005 for $44,+ million) is owned/managed by Rodney Barreto and Armando Guerra, among many others.|
Angel E. Torres and Gonzalo Munoz -- through a jumble of Miami Beach Corporations -- own a big chunk of land -- 347 acres -- outside the UDB line a stone's throw from Rodney Barreto's mega land holding, Krome Gold. I always like to keep track of who owns the land outside the Urban Development Boundary. Both properties are West of Krome Avenue. How large are these tracts of land? The entire Village of Bal Harbour is 384 acres (of which only 192 acres is land the remaining acres are water). The population on those 192 acres in Bal Harbour is about 2,500. So in comparison, we are talking about major areas of land outside the UDB. If these tracts are developed they would impact the Everglades in a big way, maybe destroy it.
There are a few other mega-sized large parcels on the other side of the UDB: Horton Homes (about 1,000 acres), Lennar's Parkland (about 900 acres) and Shoma Homes' Santa Fe Haciendas, LLC (411 acres). Note all 5 of these parcels are owned/controlled by production home builders. Lennar's plans for Parkland includes 1,257 Single Family Homes, 2,436 Townhouses and 3,248 Condominiums (that translates to about 20,000 people) on the property.
Here are some of Torres' and Munoz's OTHER Corporations and partnerships. This information is provided so you know who might be putting future pressure on the County Commission to move the line. Knowledge is golden.
