Remember how the Pines Pavilion and the Sip-and-Twirl and that whole wood structure burned down last fall in a blaze that was ultimately deemed non-suspicious though we still think it sounds suspicious? Well, now, as the Awl reports, even though foundations for a new building started getting laid last month with a scheduled reopening in 2013, the Gay Ground Zero quietly went on the market recently for a kinda unrealistic $22 million. So, those guys who bought it for $17 million back in 2010? They are getting out. But the fire wasn't suspicious. And regardless, this is going to be a sad, T-Dance-free summer in the Pines. [Awl]
UPDATE: Well, here are further details, stating the property has actually been on the market since December and likely will not be sold, because the owners won't have a chance of recouping their money until the Pavilion is rebuilt.
