Although we didn’t go to the golf resort, Soffer described it to us because the catalyst for the whole group. As soon as the world was rezoned, the technique of constructing vertically to protect open land was employed and the partnership developed 4,000 rental models.  This masterplan primarily created the whole metropolis because it exists in the present day.  After growing a number of industrial, residential, and resort buildings on the positioning, Soffer and his crew started to promote the now useable parcels to different builders which contributed to the evolution of town.
