Developer needs cash to finish Fenway resort renovation in Dunedin - 2009-12-20
Rahdert and Hollingsworth, a former vice president of the now-defunct Triangle Development, met in 2005 when Triangle paid Rahdert $6.5 million for 2 acres of his family's land on the Clearwater waterfront. Two Triangle partners, both Scientologists, sold the land to the Church of Scientology when their plans for an upscale condo development failed. The land remains vacant.
Hollingsworth, a Scientologist for more than 30 years who has publicly criticized press coverage of the church, has helped with the Fenway's redevelopment since Rahdert's purchase, attending site visits, meeting with city staff and seeking condo buyers and financiers.
