Port Intends To Rezone Grand Caribe Isle, Leaseholder Still Plans A Hotel

While many Coronado eyes have been trained on the possibility of a hotel at the ferry landing, Cays residents have been worried about the same thing on Grand Caribe Isle. Rumors have abounded for years and plans have even been presented. But many believed that the threat was staved off through citizen action and a City Council resolution. However, current leaseholder, Keith Mishkin, says that he has plans that will be presented by month end to the Port and the public, showing an ultra-high-end (“5++ star”) hotel that would consist of a series of two-story cottages and a spa on the east side of his property and a parking lot on the west. This plan, he says, would be low density, providing not more than 50 units, would be very high end and absolutely beautiful, more beautiful, presumably, than the current boat storage yard.
