eft Palm Beach Post-Times; Sunday, Nov. 10, 196&-F5 New Country Club Community Planned Happiness is . . . ENJOYING SLUASTIGS By PETE GORDON DELRAY BEACH A 400-acre tract at Congress Avenue and Lake Ida Road has changed hands for about $2 million In a land deal for development of a $100 million country' club community, according to Robert E. List, Palm Beach realtor. The purchaser and developer Is Michael Susik of Boca Raton. Seller was represented by Elwyn L. Middleton, attorney. The seller's name was kept secret. Harry Berger of Robert E. List Co., handled the negotiations. Susik said construction of homes will start before the end of November. There will be 164 homes, mostly in the $.'i5,(XK) range. Provisions are being made for a shopping mall which will eventually cover 80 acres. There will be 3,500 apartments in the development. The tract has land for three-quarters of a mile along both the east and west sides of Congress Ave. It has one mile frontage along Lake Ida Road (extension of NE 4th Street i. Its eastern boundary will eventually be marked by the forthcoming I 95. The community will be called Emerald Isle Country Club Manor, said Susik. The property already has a three-quarter mile long lake, known as Lake Delray. Access will be from the lake to Lake Ida. Emerald Isle will include an 18 hole championship golf course, a private country club and recreation center for residents of the complex. Susik estimates that It will take three years to complete the development. Palm Beach architect John Stetson of Stetson-Splna & Associates has been retained for design work. Stetson said the tract Is well-drained and serviced by a system of canals. Elevations go as high as 26 feet. Susik's timetable for construction: Completion of first homes will be in December, 1969. Golf courses, clubhouse and several apartment buildings will be started early In 1969. "The shopping mall will be built by our own group," said Susik. "It will be a regional facility and will be constructed in stages as the stores are needed." i Susik has designed and built luxury homes and highrises in Broward and Dade counties. He built the Colonial Ridge Club development in Ocean Ridge. Currently he is developing the Crown Colony Club, across from Colonial Ridge on State Road A1A. Both of these are between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intra-coastal Waterway. Both Susik and List think the development can be the largest of its kind in Delray Beach, possibly In the county. at CRESTHAVEN Photoby BobDavtdoB tor Robert E.

The Palm Beach image is one of both luxury and exclu-siveness all over the world, explained Paul Thomson, executive director of the Palm Beach County Development Board. Thomson added, "We hope it will remain so, but not to the extent that John and Jane Doe and their children believe they are not as welcome here as at Miami Beach, Atlantic City or any other great resort area." The same is true of conventions, Thomson said. "The great hotels of Palm Beach itself have joined with others in the efforts of our new Convention Bureau to sell the many advantages the Palm H ANTIQUES l Ml OflONOON MJ V, 31 3 Peruvian Ave II I j MACK R.

The value of this kind of cooperation was well proved by a recent experimental promo-'ion trip to Atlanta, Thomson added. "We organized a group which included the sales mangers of three Palm Beach ho-"ls, the Towers, Biltmore and 'ioliday Inns, along with those rom the Colonnades, Ramada !nn and the Marina Inn; a representative of Delta Air Lines, Hertz Rent-A-Car, and Ralph 'toys, manager of the West 'aim Beach Auditorium, and myself." "We gave two cocktail parties for executives of trade and business associations, large industrial firms and travel agents. All of them were surprised at our visit, saying it was the first time anybody from the Palm Beaches had solicited them. "Many of them remarked that we were presenting a new image of Palm Beach and that they were delighted to know about It." The proof came shortly after the group's visit, when the Southeastern Division of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) booked an industrial relations seminar at the Colonnades Hotel for March 4-7, 1969. A little later, eight all-expense package tours for the summer of 1969 were put together with the cooperation of Delta and National airlines, the hotels and the Brooks Universal Travel Agency of West Palm Beach. Forty two conventions have already been booked by area hotels and the bureau for 1969 and seven for 1970.
