Allegiant Air - Condo Complex Developers?

This is a bizarre one. Allegiant Air just announced they’re building a brand new condo complex near the Punta Gorda Airport. I never would’ve guessed Allegiant would pull this move. Wish they could’ve put that money for use with buying newer aircraft. Those Maddogs are fun, but they’re a pain from a maintenance perspective. What’re your thoughts on this?

I like it. It will probably bring more tourism in the area and give a boost to the economy, create jobs etc. Maybe it could potentially lead to an expansion of the airport in the future if it gets busy enough. Frontier was here for awhile in the winter, I don’t see why another airline, probably an LCC, would start service in the future.

Not really aviation related.
