The party at the Norton Museum of Art Saturday night had all the trappings of the Palm Beach high season – those Stubbs & Wootton slippers, some fabulous gowns, and, with President Trump ensconced at Mar-a-Lago, a healthy disregard for the tax plans being floated by a wide field of potential Democrat candidates in 2020.

“Those plans are so antithetical for what’s good for growth in our country, they’ll go nowhere,” Citadel founder Ken Griffin said. Improving public K-12 education […] Read more

From The Real Deal

 

After spending years assembling more than a dozen acres of land in Palm Beach, billionaire hedge-fund honcho Ken Griffin is shutting down construction of his sprawling, planned Billionaires Row project, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

Last week, Palm Beach officials were sent an email by the town’s head of Planning, Building and Zoning Department, Paul Castro, saying that budget projections for the house came in “substantially higher than initial estimates.”

Griffin paid more than $230 million for the oceanfront land at 1265 South Ocean Boulevard. The price does not include a lakefront parcel and a house reportedly under contract at 10 […] Read more

Way to go, Ken !!

In academia, there are the guys who teach economics, theorize economics, write economics and win Nobel Prizes in economics, and then there’s the guy who strides in, slaps a horse gagger on the table and shows what real money is.

That guy is Ken Griffin.

The University of Chicago has announced that the seasonal Palm Beach resident is the donor of $125 million, earmarked for the Department of Economics. It brings Griffin’s total support of the department to $150 million and is the second-largest gift in the school’s history.

That’s right, second-largest. The first is $300 million […] Read more

Ken Griffin’s House Hits 60,000 Square Feet

 

Read original From The Shiny Sheet

Palm Beach resident Ken Griffin today got the official green light to expand slightly the long-and-lean seaside house he wants to build on Billionaires Row, where the hedge-fund billionaire already had earned town approval for a residence stretching more than a football field in length.

The house’s main level increased by almost 4,500 square feet of interior space to just under 38,000 square feet in the revisions unanimously approved by the Architectural Commission. The service basement adds another 22,300 square feet, creating a 60,000-square-foot building.

The house at 1265 S. Ocean Blvd. now measures 476 feet in length — 10½ feet longer […] Read more

DONALD TRUMP, WEST PALM BEACH AND THE RISE OF THE NEW WALL STREET

DONALD TRUMP, WEST PALM BEACH AND THE RISE OF THE NEW WALL STREET

By Leah McGrath Goodman

PBHFA Founder David Goodboy Featured in Newsweek Article

he night I flew into West Palm Beach, a string of deadly tornadoes ripped across Florida. High winds pounded surf against jagged coastline and whipsawed the 100-foot-tall trees along Royal Palm Way—what locals call Bankers’ Row.

It was just a few days after Donald Trump’s inauguration. A couple of miles down the road, seemingly oblivious to the approaching storm, hundreds of revelers packed Mar-a-Lago, the Great Gatsby–esque private resort Trump has dubbed his “Winter White House,” to fete their new king. The private event, attended by Palm Beach’s billionaires, entrepreneurs and […] Read more

In simpler times, Mar-a-Lago was a mere Palm Beach club, owned by a businessman who often feuded with the locals over things like the height of his flags and whether or not officials were routing air traffic overhead as a “deliberate and malicious act.” Now, it’s the new Camp David—the “Southern White House,” in the present vernacular—where the president of the United States entertains foreign leaders and paying guests alike, and where those who can afford the recently doubled $200,000 initiation fee can enjoy their wedge salads with a side […] Read more
