WILBUR Citizen Business Editor Gulf American Corp's first building at its proposed Rio Rico subdivision near Nogales, where it wants (o sell home- sites, was finished this week. But it will be weeks before the state makes a decision on whether to permit the Florida- based company to starf selling. Only part of Gulf American's application has been filed in Phoenix to date. Stale Real Estate Commissioner J. Fred Talley and a Gulf American vice president said today. The company official, Ronald S. Sandier, says the firm hopes to file the remainder with Talley's office within 30 days. Sandier said the building now completed is a 5,000-square-foot headquarters for the company. Gulf American doesn't intend to build any homes prior to receiving state permission to sell, Sandier said. The company last year announced plans for a $50 million, 5C,000-acre community on the old Baca Float Ranch. I is first application covers approximately 1,500 proposed homesiles. Sandier said he isn't sure how much acreage is involved in this application, but estimated about 1,500 acres. Has Gulf American's string of troubles in Florida, where some of its land sales have been called into question, had some effect on its Arizona operations? "No," said Sandier. "People have been very nice to us out here." He said the company oper ating in Arizona is a wholly- owned subsidiary of Gulf American of Florida. "The parent company is not doing business here. Only the Arizona corporation," Sandier said.

Talley said "we're going through it piecemeal." including a contract the company would offer to prospective buyers. "We want to know -that it has provisions that the public should have to be protected," he said. Talley said " a number of things" in connection with Gulf American's application haven't yet been filed. Among these, he said, are "documents as to title and as to clearance by the health department as to sanitation and water supply and all of that. "We just don't consider we have an application until we get it all," he added. Sandier said "we've got all the exhibits in there with the exception of the sewer and water contracts." He said "certain details" are still to be worked out pertaining to these proposed contracts with a utilities company, "That's all that remains for that filing to be complete." he said.
