1 Summer s End St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
3 Summer s End, St. John, VI Introduction Summer s End is the brainchild of the award winning development team of Chaliese Summers and Rick Barksdale. Located on the sleepy East End of St. John, U.S.V.I. in Coral Bay, Summer s End is a potential seven phase project anchored by The Yacht Club at Summer s End and The St. John Marina. Long known as the Jewel of the Caribbean because of her massive national park covering 70% of the island, St. John s development has been frustrated due to the lack of a marina. After nearly a decade of effort and hundreds of thousands of dollars invested by Chaliese and her team, St. John will no longer lack the friendly access needed to realize her potential. Summer s End is a market driven development whose design is tailored to her specific market. Each phase is designed for organic growth that supports successive phases. While great effort has been exerted to make Summer s End collective and comprehensive in design and scope, each phase is independent and autonomous from the other financially and developmentally. With a projected fulfillment timeline of six to eight years, the purpose of this document is to provide a comprehensive overview of the Summer s End vision, introduce principals involved and provide an idea of financial potential to those individuals who have the ability to share in the enthusiasm and dividends offered by this life changing and legacy development.
