Will Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner choose Florida over NY? Couple books $31M plot on Miami 'Billionaire Bunker'
The couple put money down on a $31.8 million land plot nestled in Indian Creek, an uber swanky neighborhood, which is known for its state-of-the-art security facility and beautiful waterfront homes
While there were talks of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner returning to New York after President Donald Trump's departure from the White House following his definitive loss in the 2020 election, it was recently reported that their plans might have changed as pair of Trump advisers had purchased a $31 million plot of land on Miami's "Billionaire Bunker" in Florida.
According to Page Six, after browsing through numerous properties and lots of land in the Miami and Palm Beach area, the couple put money down on a $31.8 million land plot nestled in Indian Creek, an uber swanky neighborhood which is known for its state-of-the-art security facility and beautiful waterfront homes. It is easily one of the most secure places in Florida, as it boasts a 13-man police force for just 29 residences.
The island got the nickname "Billionaire Bunker" because of the high-profile residents that have settled onto the island, including model Adriana Lima and billionaire businessman Carl Icahn of New York City. Apparently, the couple purchased Lot 4, which was previously owned by Julio Iglesias. They will have 1.84 acres with 200 feet of private waterfront area to build a bayfront estate. The sale for the lot, which cost $31.8 million, taxed at $472,764 a year, closes on December 17.
Indian Creek Village is reputed for being "the world's most exclusive municipality". The local authorities run patrols around the island on land and maintain an around-the-clock armed marine patrol to supervise the waters surrounding the island. Every resident is ensured a waterfront view as each home on Indian Creek is built around the perimeter of the island while the middle is occupied with the luxurious Indian Creek Country Club and an 18-hole golf course. Indian Creek is only accessible by a single bridge that is guarded by a gatehouse.
"The Kushners have been looking to purchase property in Florida for quite some time, and will also maintain their home in New York," a source told Page Six. "But the shift away from New York City's social scene could be in anticipation of an icy reception, with Ivanka's best friend saying that the return could be 'difficult.'"
Initially, there were reports that Ivanka and Jared would shift to their $4.1 million Manhattan apartment at the Republican leader's Park Avenue building once the POTUS admits his defeat against the former vice president. But the couple is reportedly not welcomed back in New York City. Comedy pair Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, also known as The Good Liars, have posted a series of “Not Wanted” posters. The posters have mocked the first daughter’s “fake posh accent” and also Kushner, who they referred to as the mythical evil creature “Slenderman”.
However, not just the liberals, but Project Lincoln, the group of Republicans who have made it their mission to take down the POTUS, also put up two billboards in Times Square. As per The Sun, one of the billboards mocked Ivanka’s 39-year-old husband, whose picture was next to a quote once uttered by him that “New Yorkers are going to suffer and that’s their problem”.
