Note this is the first mention of an EB-5 investment in the mix. Lots of foreigners with money they are trying to offshore that want to buy a visa with few questions asked. After the Jay and Burke fiasco, I expect there are still folks looking for the golden ticket. The hassle with ski resorts is they rarely can meet the long term permanent job requirements required of an EB-5 investment.

Looks like the fall construction promised earlier in the year has shifted to winter or spring of 2018, not like it hasn't happened before. Given that the NP project is predicting a major labor shortage in the region if it gets approved, I expect Balsams will be paying a premium for folks to support the first phase of construction.
