$60m Deal for Jungle Island Animal Theme Park in Miami


A $60 million deal for city-owned Jungle Island animal theme park in Miami looks promising reports the Miami Herald.

Miami commissioners are debating a transfer of the lease from the park’s private ownership group to ESJ Capital, an Aventura-based real estate firm backed by European investors.

Alexander Tachmes, an attorney at Shutts & Bowen representing ESJ, said “Jungle Island is an incredible jewel, located right on the water, situated right between Miami and Miami Beach.  The park has a lot of potential and — with some improvements that our client will make — we think it will be a great investment.”
