Like a broken toy cast aside after Christmas, it appears that Michigan drug rehab mogul Per Wickstrom has relegated a Monroe County property acqusition to the dust bin.
Miss Fortune has learned that the property Wickstrom seemed so gaga about back in November is still on the market, without an offer from Wickstrom...or anyone else.
Back on November 15, your girl Miss Fortune
picked up the story, reported originally in the Monroe News, that Wickstrom and his entourage had toured the vacant Boysville Center. Located in Monroe County's Frenchtown Township, the two-story property currently sits empty on 56 acres of land with more than 41,000 square feet of space, including a kitchen, sleeping quarters, gymnasium and classrooms.
The asking price was $1.5 million, according to Joe Rosenberg of CBRE Realtors of Southfield, which is listing the property. CBRE confirmed to Miss Fortune in an email today that the property is still listed for sale, and as of today had not received any offers.
Miss Fortune wonders why Wickstrom couldn't—or wouldn't—close that deal.
Did something happen in the days and weeks to follow that convinced him swanning around Monroe County might not be the best move?
Wonder what it was?
I bet I know!
