The Florida mansion where Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused young girls has been bought by a real estate developer who plans to demolish it.
Todd Michael Glaser, a Florida real estate developer, has signed a contract to buy the property, and is hoping to close on it by January 15.
He plans to tear the property down and replace it with a 14,000-square-foot ‘Art Moderne home’ and if everything goes according to plan he hopes to have the place flattened before April 1.
Before such a demolition can proceed, Glaser must ask for permission fromneighbors in order to raze the six-bedroom main house and three-bedroom staff house.
Such a request is necessary because of the pricey nature of the posh enclave which usually prohibits such demolition projects during the winter months, when wealthy snowbirds flock to so-called Billionaires Row for its warm climate, white sandy beaches and palatial homes.

Florida real estate developer Todd Michael Glaser intends to demolish the existing house and build a new one. The house has 170 feet of water frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway and space for a private dock
‘Neighbors who are usually against something like this will possibly be for it,’ Glaser told The Daily News.
‘We have all these gawkers. If the house is gone, what are they going to take a picture of? So we might be able to get it knocked down early, which I want to do, just to get rid of it,’ he said.
‘Palm Beach is going to be very happy that it’s gone,’ he added.
‘It’s wild. People came out to the site, sent emails. People showed up at my house in Miami Beach. I have a woman telling me she’s calling the EPA, something about nuclear medicine,’ he said.
