When I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL for 4 year from 1994 to 1997, it was an era of sports domination with the Florida Marlins winning the 1997 World Series and the new Florida Panthers hockey team making the Stanley Cup Finals in 1996. Wayne Huizenga owned both teams along with the Miami Dolphins, and is the only founder of 3 Fortune 500 Companies that include Blockbuster Video, Waste Management, and AutoNation. He made headlines flying his helicopter in to downtown Ft. Lauderdale to land on top of the 15-story office building he worked out of on Los Olas Blvd.
Sitting on a point overlooking historic New River in Ft. Lauderdale, the Huizenga mansion is now for sale with 21,057 SqFt of living space, 10 bedrooms and 18 baths. the unique property is divided into 3 separate living zones to accommodate family and guests with a central portion designed to entertain large groups. The property is surrounded by 600ft of waterfront and has deep-water docks for mega-yachts (Huizenga at what time bought Greg Norman’s 77ft yacht and named it The Floridian).
