The Bahamas Supreme Court in Freeport ruled
in favor of Discovery Land Co., a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based
developer, enabling it to resume construction on its Baker's Bay
Golf and Ocean Club private residential community project on Great
Guana Cay off the east coast of Abaco.
Opponents of the
development had cited environmental concerns to the seven-mile-long
island and its 80 inhabitants.
A 180-slip marina,
marina bar and restaurants are the only public components of the
project, which will feature more than 350 custom beachfront homes
The marina is
expected to open in late 2008.
