The city is now closer to breaking ground on a $6.5 million overhaul of its Seminole Boat Ramp than it has been since the concept was put on paper three years ago.

But some key parcels in the North Marina district — 13 mostly residential blocks just north of the downtown waterfront anchored by the public boat ramp — have changed since the beautification plan to bring retail and vibrancy to the area was designed.

Brian Andrus, a $1 million donor to the Church of Scientology who worked in the church's former intelligence gathering unit in the 1970s, bought $12.3 million worth of property within the North Marina footprint this year alone.
