Construction in Aruba at Fisherman's Huts?

I heard a rumor that a high-rise hotel was under construction at Fisherman's
Huts in Aruba. Anybody know if there's any truth to it?

I was in Aruba this January and I heard talk about building a high-rise
hotel. If I recall correctly, the locals were fighting it because
where the hotel would be built is one of the few places on the island
where they still have access to the water.

it's for real. well there is a lot of opposition to it
among the 'scene' there, but how much difference will
that make?

i didn't find out who the mega-corp was that was going
to be responsible for destroying the remainder of the
wind there, though. i don't know if a targeted letter
writing campaign would make any difference.

Yikes! Have they started construction yet?

I've heard that SFBA in San Francisco (and US Windsurfing) have been
able to persuade local officials that mega-construction is not always
the answer.

Any way that these U.S. based groups can lend a hand in Aruba???

Not to discount the work of the SFBA but I believe it was more the dot
com bust that ended the SFO expansion plans as well as the instant
evaporation of our state surplus. Went from huge state surplus to huge
deficit in about a year, partly due to the Enron power fiasco.
