Maho Bay's design has nothing to do with the problem. They continue to be profitable under the current lease. The land owners decided to sell and put an out-of-reach asking price on the property. The land has been on the market for 4-5 years. They've tried to get nonprofit foundations who are committed to the environment to buy the property, but the price is apparently too high.
