We all remember the devastating and inhumane attack on the customers on the night club Pulse that happened some months back; the June 12th attack left 49 people dead and 53 wounded, and caused an uproar in the LGBT community both in the US and abroad.
But there is one bit of good news among everything: the city of Orlando (Florida) has reached an agreement to buy the night club! Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer stated that the city has reached a deal to buy the gay nightclub for $2.25 million – which is almost $600.000 more than its market value.
The city issued a statement: “On November 14, 2016 the Orlando City Council will vote to purchase Pulse nightclub at 1912 S. Orange Avenue, the site of our nation’s worst mass shooting. The City and the owner of Pulse have agreed to a purchase price of $2.25 million. If the City Council votes to approve the land purchase on November 14, City staff will complete a due diligence period which includes review of the land survey, title and environmental of the site. Following this period, the parties have agreed to close on or before December 30, 2016.”
