Pierce Brosnan Lists Malibu Beach Home for Sale for $100 Million

A James Bond-worthy Malibu retreat is now on the market, courtesy of former 007 himself. Pierce Brosnan is listing his palatial beach home for sale, with a staggering $100 million price tag attached.

The actor and his wife, journalist and filmmaker Keely Shaye Brosnan, started working on the custom 12,500-square-foot home in 2002, shortly after the debut of Brosnan’s fourth Bond film, Die Another Day. It took a decade to complete the sprawling residence, which is designed in a Southeast Asian-style that’s inspired by the Irish actor’s time in Thailand shooting Tomorrow Never Dies.

Developer Todd Michael Glaser has made an offer to buy the Palm Beach home of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein with plans to raze it and build a house there on speculation, Glaser has told the Palm Beach Daily News.

But any sale is still in the early stages and not yet finalized.

Glaser has put down an initial deposit on the property, but he wouldn’t disclose the amount or how much he has offered to pay for the house. 

The lakefront property at 358 El Brillo Way remains listed for sale at $21.995 million in the local multiple listing service. Listing agent Kerry Warwick and broker John Hackett, both of the Corcoran Group, declined to comment.

LACKIE: Will second wave of COVID burst Toronto real estate bubble?

More On This Topic

Buyers and sellers alike seemed to share the belief that in the face of an all but guaranteed second wave, the time was now.

All the while, the condo market was showing signs of distress.

In response to widespread job losses, particularly in the hospitality and service sector, university classes moving online, and the short-term rental market being decimated by the abrupt loss of tourism, the rental market was flooded with vacant downtown condos.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

It wouldn’t be long, analysts predicted, until investors, faced with uncertain returns, started dumping their units.

By the time September rolled around and the original mortgage deferral programs ended, the condo market surged with new listings — a 215% increase over the same month last year.

For the first time in a very long time, the term “buyer’s market” was

Health care real estate firm eyeing metro Denver for corporate headquarters

A multibillion-dollar California real estate investment trust and the U.S. arm of a Japanese aerospace firm are considering locating their headquarters in metro Denver, according to incentive requests approved this week by the Colorado Economic Development Commission.

Healthpeak Properties, a real estate investment trust based in Irvine, Calif., was approved for up to $5.3 million in Job Growth Incentive Tax Credits if it brings 166 net new full-time jobs to the state. The company, which applied under the codename Project Pegasus, expects the primarily executive-level jobs will pay an average annual wage of $425,213 a year.

“It would be the highest projected average annual wage if they move forward with Colorado,” said Jill McGranahan, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade.

One question around Healthpeak’s award is whether it could actually take advantage of those state tax credits. Real  estate investment trusts must pay out

Speedy WRs help Carr bring back vertical game to Raiders

Derek Carr dropped back and unleashed a deep strike that Nelson Agholor caught for a touchdown. Two drives later, Carr did it again when Henry Ruggs III got behind the Kansas City defence and brought in another pass for a touchdown.

The quarterback who has been criticized for too often settling for checkdowns is finally showing the aggressiveness the Raiders hoped he would after they drafted the speedy Ruggs.

The performance Carr delivered against the defending champion Chiefs might have even made the difficult-to-please late owner Al Davis smile if he could have seen it.

It was also a sign that the Raiders (3-2) might have an offence that can keep up with the more dynamic teams in the league as they head into their bye week seventh in the NFL in scoring at 30.2 points per game.

It’s only fitting the “vertical game” is a big part of the

inpsiron 14 tiger lake

Intel’s 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake family of processors really impressed us in terms of is single-threaded performance gains as well as its general high level performance. It doesn’t matter what the task, content creation, productivity or otherwise, 11th-generation Core processors from Intel could handle it with ease.
