Silver Armadillo Letter of Appreciation

“Tony Fraga is a serious businessman who is also concerned about his tenants, and willing to work out compromises that please everyone. He’s also a perfectionist when it comes to the new West Gate, and I hope his vision comes true. It will be a great asset to Asheville, using existing structures and updating them while having as little impact on the environment as possible.”

Haywood Park Complex Sold for $18.5 Million

“When I purchased the Haywood Park property from Robert Armstrong, I had my own dreams for the future of downtown and I wanted to make Robert proud; he was a pioneer of downtown rebirth and development. Unfortunately, I was unable to realize those dreams on my own, so I set out to find someone who would deliver the kind of project I believe Asheville needs.

“Tony Fraga is that man.

“There were many others interested in the property, but Tony’s vision came closest to mine…and although I feel a selfish sadness in giving up the property, I’m certain that Tony will make Robert Armstrong’s vision and my dream a reality.“

City of Homestead, Florida Letter of Appreciation

“After Hurricane Andrew, the City of Homestead faced the enormous task of rebuilding our City from bottom up. You were one of the first people to come into City Hall and ask what could be done to help the community at large. We explained how important it was to get the shopping center you owned, Homestead Plaza, up and running – people needed groceries, medicines and household items.

Your company worked with our building and zoning officials in an expeditious manner to rebuild your shopping center. Not only did your center rebuild, but it added additional stores and restaurants, thereby adding to the commercial base of Homestead. In the future we look forward to working with you and your reputable organization on additional projects.”
